About Us

How we started

In 1987, we originally started our business as a deck contractor under the company name of, D and M Custom Decks. Within a short period of time, we added installing and creative custom paver patios to our fast growing resume of expertise.

With today’s ever changing market and products, we have evolved into a premiere designer/installer of outdoor living areas. As of spring of 2009, we became know as DM Outdoor Living Spaces.

You will find we are the most versatile installer of pavers, wood, composite materials and stone. We work together with our clients to assess the budget, the design needs and what suits your lifestyle the best to bring you an enjoyable outdoor living space.

We are a licensed, insured and bonded company with a long lasting record of quality and satisfaction in the hardscape and landscape design and installation industry.
