1. Getting Started

We offer a complimentary consultation in the comfort of your own home or at our deck showroom in Lancaster, PA. The main goal with this meeting is to get to know you and get a feel for your outdoor living dreams. We will discuss design, products, budget, and ideas. This is a very vital part in creating a great foundation for your project.

2. Design Phase

Back in our office our design team will begin creating your project based on the conversations from the initial consultation. We will create drawings, 3D renderings, and a vivid walk-through. Once the design is complete, we will put together a very detailed and accurate quote.

3. Design Presentation

Now the real fun starts. We will set up a meeting to present the plans and the quote. The design presentation is one of our highlights, as we see your excitement when all of the possibilities of your dream outdoor space are presented in 3D renderings and videos.

4. Contract

Once you are comfortable and ready to move forward, we will finalize the design, colors, products, and details. From there we put an official contract together and once that is signed and a deposit is received, we put you on our schedule and begin plans to make your project a reality.

5. Final Drafting and Permitting

Our staff will then get the final drafting in place. From there our permit team will apply for the permits and work on getting that all in place. Once that clears our scheduler will coordinate on the starting date. You will be notified each step of the way as it clears each phase.

6. Installation

This is when it all comes together. All you need to do is sit back and watch your outdoor living dreams become a reality! Our crew foreman that is assigned to your project will be on site every day to keep things running smoothly and will be a main point of contact throughout the project.

7. Enjoy

From start to completion we strive on making this a smooth and easy process for you, leaving you with a completed project you can enjoy for years to come. You are now ready to start creating memories and enjoying your very own backyard oasis with family and friends!

Tom B:

“I cannot recommend this company highly enough.  It starts with Matt who worked with us to design the deck (approximately 800 square feet) and a patio (twice the size).  The completed project looks better than the design! They had different teams for the deck, patio, and stone work. All did their work with extreme professionalism.”
