backyard custom firepitThe Outside Landscape Group transformed our backyard into a beautiful and useable space. They designed and installed a paver patio, retaining/seating wall, steps, drainage/sprinkler system, fire pit, and comprehensive landscape solution.

From our initial meeting with Rick of the Outside Landscape Group I knew we were dealing with true professionals. Up until our meeting with Rick, we had wasted our time with contractors that provided estimates without even having measured our backyard and who only provided rough sketches on crumpled pieces of paper. We were very upfront with our budget and expectations from the beginning and Rick was able to create detailed, professional plans that addressed the difficulties of the grade of our land within our budget. Rick and his colleagues took detailed measurements and throughout design to installation there was never a question about the quantity or quality of materials used. Rick brought samples of the materials to be used as well as glossy pictures of each plant in the design. The estimate thoroughly detailed the process of the backyard transformation and how the design would be achieved. The plans and the detailed estimate were not only what gave us the confidence needed to proceed forward with the Outside Landscape Group, but were also exactly what we needed to present for approval to our HOA. Throughout the installation period there were never any surprises. The project was completed within budget. Rick and his team checked in with me daily about any questions that I might have and also provided updated time tables for completion since we had some unfavorable weather. I was very pleased with the professionalism of the crew and their respect for my family and my property.

We were very pleased with every interaction we had with Rick and his team and were absolutely thrilled with the beauty of the design of our new backyard. From the hardscape to the variety of plantings, our outdoor space is now quite stunning. It is not only the perfect space for entertaining, but for pure family enjoyment. We find ourselves making up any excuse we can to be outside and enjoying the patio and fire pit.

When it comes time to transform the front yard into as beautiful a space as the backyard has become, the Outside Landscape Group will be the first and only call we make.

outside landscape group- backyard designThis was a large and difficult project, requiring considerable problem-solving, taste and creativity. Outside Landscape Group was the third landscape architect we hired and we are thoroughly thrilled at our decision to be so selective. The job required transforming a large, seriously eroding, troublesome back yard, void of decent sunlight and grass, that blends into surrounding woods, into a back yard that we could be proud of and enjoy.

Rick Kaldrovics, the owner of Outside Landscape Group, met with us several times, going over every concern and criteria we wanted. As an architect I have considerable experience in design and landscaping, but am very capable of recognizing good design when I see it. Rick is a highly talented, excellent designer. He created a plan that used color, seasonal change and balance to result in a landscape that changes and is more beautiful every month. It incorporated boulders, a patio, land grading, plantings, retaining walls, water and erosion control, new grass, and woodland paths. As expected, some modifications and tweaks happened as the design came to life, but every change was an improvement and delight with no additional costs.
If that weren’t enough, their installation crew was the best I have ever seen. Extremely hard-working, able to interpret the plans beautifully and with incredible attention to detail. The job was on-time and came together flawlessly, despite several days lost to weather.

We are more than delighted at the outcome and our choice to use Outside Landscape Group. Needless to say, we highly recommend Outside Landscape Group and now plan on putting some money aside and asking Rick and his crew to use their creative genius to do the front of our home.

backyard putting greenThey added a fire pit and a putting green to our backyard. In addition, we live on a lake and have never maintained the trees or bushes growing on the shoreline. They cleared all of that out and put in new plantings and gave us a beautiful setting in our back yard.

We have done lots of renovations at our home since we have lived here. This was by the far the smoothest, easiest, and best organized project we have ever completed. Rick’s team is so professional. They left the worksite spotless every day. They stayed on time and whenever anything came up that was unexpected, I was made aware immediately and given different options on how to go forward. The communication was fantastic, and the work was spectacular. I could not give a higher recommendation to Outside Landscape Group.

We had a design for our front yard done by another company. They were difficult to work with and I hated the design. Rick listened to what I wanted and provided a new design which was perfect in every way. They finished my yard today…

Excellent Work

Rick came up with a very elegant and low maintenance design for our backyard. It gave the space a brand new look with functionality. Service was wonderful, too. Very easy to work with. Looking forward to having them do more work in the future.
