Outdoor Living Design and Building Process

Whether we are talking about simple patio designs or expansive outdoor installations, the process begins by completing a free, online estimate form to tell us about your project. One of our team members will then contact you to schedule a time to talk about your landscaping project, budget, and timeline.

You will then meet with your dedicated landscape designer at your property for a free, one-hour consultation. During the consultation, your designer will assess the space and discuss any concerns or things to consider. You will also have a dedicated project manager who will discuss options and go over how the process moves forward.

After you review the project plan, the project manager and our quality assurance team will work with the installation crew to complete your project.

Outdoor Living Frequently Asked Questions

What outdoor living services do you provide?

Install-It-Direct is a full-service landscape design company specializing in pavers, artificial turf, outdoor kitchens and built-in BBQs, outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, retaining and freestanding walls, water features, outdoor lighting, and landscape design.

Do you offer free consultations for outdoor remodeling and outdoor living design services?

Yes, we offer free, on-site consultations. One of our landscape designers will come out to meet you at your home, assess the project site, go over your budget and ideas, and then provide a 3D rendering for your review.

How long does the outdoor living installation process typically take?

How long the project takes depends on how big the project is and what we are installing. Building a paver patio with an outdoor fireplace and a patio kitchen is going to take longer than adding a fire pit to an existing outdoor living area. To give you an idea, installing a 1,000-square-foot paving stone project, such as a driveway or patio, usually takes three to four days to complete.

What materials do you use for outdoor living projects?

Our team has years of experience working with various materials, but we specialize in designing and installing outdoor living spaces that feature artificial turf and pavers.

What maintenance is required for outdoor living installations?

If your outdoor installations include synthetic grass, maintenance will include rinsing and grooming the grass as needed. If your artificial turf lawn needs a good cleaning, we offer a 12-point cleaning and maintenance service that includes debris and pet hair removal, weed removal, blade fluffing, loosening infill, and other services you may need, such as pet urine odor removal.

Paver patios, driveways, and other installations may require periodic cleaning and, if you choose to seal your pavers, they will also need to be periodically resealed. We offer cleaning, re-sanding, and sealing services if you need assistance with paving stone maintenance.
