Committed to Outdoor Living, Committed to Rebuilding Our City 

Being a native Houstonian, I have a great love and commitment to the surrounding areas of Houston and my community of Katy. My passion for the city, designing, and building collide as Hurricane Harvey tried to destroy us. But we will rebuild stronger together, whether we are rebuilding your dream home or backyard. We are committed to our core values of being honest, creative with solutions and design, informative, & diligent with an outstanding outcome.

The Preferred Outdoor Living Specialist

Your interest in Your Great Outdoors is appreciated by our team! Our No. 1 job is to create the best customer experience the industry has to offer. Your first experience begins the moment you step foot in our unique one-of-a-kind outdoor showroom located in Katy, Texas. Our staff is qualified to speak to you about your desires when it comes to your home property. The second experience you will love is our design phase. This is where your dreams and our experience is developed to a viable project. Our architect and designers are not only concerned with blowing you away with a creative design, but they are very concerned with the details of the project which ultimately saves our clients’ money at the end of the day with up-front planning. The third and final experience you will have with Your Great Outdoors is our construction process. Our team meets weekly, combing through the details of each client’s project. Following our meeting, our clients get a day-to-day construction plan for each week leading through the entire project. Let’s face it: life does not stop just because you have a home improvement project going on at your home. So let us take care of the details while you take care of yours.

 

Loving and Living in Your Great Outdoors.

 

Our Projects

 

 

Our Approach

Your Great Outdoors follows a well-defined process consisting of three primary steps: Consulting, Designing, & Building. We understand that we are only as good as our last project, therefore every project is important to us.

 

1

Consulting

Visiting your home allows our development team to see the individual characteristics of the house along with listening to your family’s wish list and desires for the ultimate outcome. Our team is trained to speak knowledgeably about house additions, freestanding structures, outdoor kitchens, pools, patios, landscaping, lighting, irrigation, & drainage.
2

Designing

In our first design meeting at our showroom two weeks after the consultation, we will look at the overall design. We will select the materials from our design room without having to drive anywhere. We will also make adjustments to the design. Five days later, we’ll have a completed design with the actual colors of your project as well as a detailed line item quote for your review. Your design will be completed and ready for us to prepare to submit for Permitting and HOA applications that we will take care of for you.

Building

Building does not have to be a stressful process. We make it as seamless as possible. Our clients enjoy the benefit of our transparency and ease of communication. Between calling your project manager, your lead developer, or just walking into our showroom anytime you want to seek answers, we are here for you. During construction, there are always questions and unforeseen detours. In Houston, one of those things is rain and working around its crazy schedule. We adapt in every circumstance and move forward with a plan to complete your project. Every project has a different time table, based on the scope of work, and any inspections process that has to be accommodated for the approval of each phase.

Patios can be either freestanding tied into a portion of the house based on what the design call for. The other way to achieve a patio structure is by creating a space for an arbor. With any structure that is designed it should always take into account the space that the furniture will occupy, and the space that is needed to maneuver around in this space with out feeling crowded.

There are a variety of alternatives based on the amount of water and what setting it is in to alleviate drainage problems. There are French drains, Area drains, channel drains. If the slopes do not allow for a gravity drained system sump pumps are necessary to pump the water out to the street or the storm water inlet.

  • The addition to our outdoor space is truly amazing thanks to Your Great Outdoors. Brandon designed a beautiful covered patio and landscaped area with an incredible outdoor kitchen & bar. His team provided expertise throughout the entire process and kept us completely updated with the weekly project schedule. The quality of work is outstanding, so I would definitely recommend them for any outdoor project. We love our new patio and can't wait to enjoy it for many years.

  • Your Great Outdoors had quite a big job to do at our home. Your Great Outdoors broke up and pulled out the existing pool, removed all old pavers from back patio and reworked our patio opening with smaller stone pillars and cedar. The whole look was finished off with beautiful landscaping, landscape lighting and irrigation. We never imagined the yard could look this beautiful. Thank you YGO!
