We take pride in presenting design solutions that reflect your unique needs and personality as a family. In order to do that, we spend a lot of time discussing the details of your project.

Get Started Form

Our new project form provides a great starting point for future conversations and helps us understand all the details of your project.

Project Discussion

Our process is very personal - that starts here. We'll discuss your project goals, explore your vision, finalize a wish list, and work together to establish an accurate budget.

On-Site Consultation

Time spent on your property helps us better understand your vision and evaluate the scope of your project. We're able to discuss potential hurdles that may arise or offer alternative ideas.

Design Agreement

A Green Guys Design Agreement outlines the fees associated with the preliminary site work, the time needed to develop design drawings, and the resources used to prepare an itemized construction proposal.

2 Design

As a design/build firm, our design team works directly with our construction experts to formulate a unique plan that will bring your vision to life in a way that respects your budget.


Using what we know about your family and your desired use of the space, we consider the flow, material options, and visual aesthetics to bring your vision to life with drawings that illustrate our recommendations for your project.


We invite you into our office to present your project design. We'll look at 2D drawings, perspective renderings, and lots of pictures to help you envision your new space.

Construction Bid

During our design presentation, we also provide detailed, line-itemed construction costs necessary to build our proposed design ensuring there are no surprises down the road.

Construction Timeline

It's important to have a clear understanding of the construction process. We'll spend time discussing the timeline from permit requests through the final reveal.

Our unique offering of both internal design and construction experts allows us to seamlessly transition from design to construction without the setbacks of unforeseen costs or construction challenges. The same team that got you this far will see you through to the end.

Contract Approval

The first step is agreeing on the terms of a construction document. Upon approval and down payment, we begin the construction process.

Permits & Material Choices

We handle the permitting process for you, ensuring that everything is approved and built according to the specified code established by your city and/or county. While working through the permitting process, we finalize material choices. Depending on the scope of your project, this may include materials like plants, paver stones, wood type and color, counter-tops, furniture, etc.


Our team of highly qualified employee craftsmen break ground and begin the process of transforming your property.


Regular, on-site visits from the owner of the company creates an open line of communication on a daily basis to provide updates and answer questions.


We take the time to walk through your property with you to ensure everything is completed to your specifications. We discuss things like proper maintenance of plants and materials and answer any final questions.

Testimonials Don't just take our word for it...

"We thought our new home in Glendale had a small yard so we hired Green Guys to come in, clear everything out, and reorganize everything a bit. We went from having a small patio with a tin pergola, to two patios, a firepit, pergola, built-in bar and grill, plus MORE yard space than we had before and somehow, our yard feels 3 times bigger. Amazing work, we love it!"
