Design Works did an amazing job creating the backyard oasis my husband and I had always envisioned. We have a very private back yard that we rarely used due to the fact we are away most summer weekends. We wanted to make use of our backyard during the fall, winter and spring seasons. We were also concerned about keeping the project in the spirit of our antique home. When we met with Design Works, we knew that they got it! Design Works created a beautifully landscaped patio area with a hot tub that perfectly kept with the theme of our home. They utilized stones from our property and planted natural low maintenance plantings. They were on time, on budget and a pleasure to work with. We love our Oasis and receive compliments on the project all the time!! Highly recommend working with Design Works. They are a talented team!

We recently used Design Works to create a backyard design plan for us. It was amazing, and so detailed. We then hired them to install the backyard patio and fire pit. It came out beautifully! They were professional, hard working, knowledgeable, and got everything done in the time frame that they said they would. We will certainly use this company again, and highly recommend them!

We had a 1,000+ sq ft patio and walkway designed and installed in our new home. From design, pricing, scheduling, install, and completion everything went great. We were very happy that they did what they said they were going to do, especially on the time-frame. The crews were friendly, clean and respectful. We are very much looking forward to many years of enjoying our newly created outdoor space. If/when we do more outside work we will definitely rehire Design Works.

We were very pleased with the work that Jim and his folks did in rebuilding our front steps and walkway as well as the associated landscaping. We liked his overall design and the fact that he was able to get to our project in short order prior to the winter of 2014-2015. We would (and have) recommend him to others.

In 2015, we installed an in-ground gunite pool. We contracted with DesignWorks to do the hardscape, pool deck, low voltage lighting and landscaping. DesignWorks was the only company that came in with a professional drawn and rendered plan. That was a clear distinguisher right from the start. The work was started on scheduled in June and completed on schedule in early July. The quality of the products they used was first rate from the pavers, wall blocks and fire pit from Techo-Bloc to the plants for the landscaping.

Jim, the owner, worked with me to ensure that all of the design features I wanted were included. The pavers are Techo-Bloc’s Blu 80 product laid out on a 45-degree pattern. We included an inner soldier course of smaller pavers next to the pool coping and a double soldier course on the outside edge of the deck. All of that combines to make a very professionally finished and nicely flowing appearance.

With all that, the capstone for me is the landscaping. Jennifer from DesignWorks did the landscaping design which works to perfection. No matter where you sit or look, there are interesting plant and flower details. As I write this, I’m watching a hummingbird at the Hibiscus tree.

Overall, it was a great project, and DesignWorks was a great team to work with. I would definitely contact them for future projects.
