Outdoor living spaces like outdoor kitchens and patio covers can deeply affect your quality of life.

Texas does everything bigger, including its covered patios - making this outdoor living space a perfect choice for Go Texan Day 2014. For more outdoor design ideas by Outdoor Homescapes of Houston, visit www.outdoorhomescapes.com

Luxurious covered patio with fire pit, outdoor dining area, AV system and wet bar.

No longer just a couple chairs by the pool, todays backyard retreats come with a variety of appliances and amenities that are simply an extension of the life you want to live indoors.

Our particular specialties include: custom outdoor kitchens, designer stamped concrete, outdoor fireplaces and fire pits, arbors, roof and porch extensions, outdoor lighting systems,  MistAway™ mosquito systems, space planning, professional design, water and stone features and home automation. Houston clients are so pleased with our work, in fact, that we won the 2015 Best of Houzz award for customer service (based on all our positive reviews!)

At Outdoor Homescapes of Houston, we also offer high-end 3D landscape software that allows you to see your outdoor designs and backyard ideas before theyre built. Virtual tours and video walkthroughs, for instance, allow you to see the project from every angle, play around with colors and materials and tweak the details. Hows that for low risk and high satisfaction?

Here’s our “Design Services Roadmap,” if you will – the process we’ve gone through with every client in our decade of business serving more than 600 clients!

Initial Meeting: In this one- to two-hour meeting, we discuss  your ideas, expectations, and budget. We also show you your own personalized “Design Services Roadmap” on a laptop.

Second Consultation: In this three- to four-hour session, we discuss each component’s location, size, texture and color. Components can include: an outdoor kitchen, roof structure, a patio, fireplace or firepit, water features, a pool, a landscape for the front and/or back of your property, drainage, irrigation, and lighting. Then, we review your ideas after perusing Outdoor Homescapes’ private, online library and web links of kitchen plans, kitchen photos, natural stone samples, cultured stone samples, arbors, water features, fire pits, and landscapes.

Development of Design: The following work comprises about eight to 10 hours, completed by us in our office:

  • Graphical Pictures – Exact renderings of your house with new components.
  • Blueprint to Scale – Foundation and elevations completed by AIA Architect offering ustomized space planning for outdoor living.
  • Material List – Quantities such as linear feet, square feet and yards are stated in line item form. 
  • Quote – Cost per component in line item form.

Presentation of First Draft: This one- to two-hour session usually takes place within 14 days of the second consultation. At this point, you can view our  two-dimensional graphical renderings, blueprint, material list and quote and request any design changes.

Fine Tuning of Design: This work, done at the client’s request, takes about one to two hours in our office.

Presentation of Final Draft: This meeting, which takes about one to two hours, typically occurs within five days of the first draft presentation. You view the final/revised 2D renderings, blueprint, material list and quote. We then discuss next steps and action items.

HOA/Homeowners Association and/or City Presentation: This work is done by us in our office and usually takes about one to two hours. It involves a complete review of covenants and restrictions. All documentation is submitted to HOA/ARC or  the city.

The maximum fee is $1,995. Half of that is credited to the project installation and build if completed by Outdoor Homescapes. Smaller design packages are also available on request.
