Our Process

Our Outdoor Design Process for DFW’s Homeowners

What we bring to the table..

Every single project is custom, every single time. We promise your experience will feel like you are our most important customer, as warm and fuzzy inside as we were on the very first one. We are genuinely excited to see your space come to life. We want you to be the hero. We are listening. We are fun. We are experienced. Let us make your dream a reality.

The Compass Outdoor Design team believes that we get better and faster when we follow an internal process. Our process is the exact same on every project. You know what to expect. We have a team of expert communicators.
