I’ve seen your yard signs in my neighborhood. How long has 806 Outdoors been in the construction industry?
Our craftsmen and construction professionals have an eye for detail work. With more than 35 years of combined experience spanning landscape, residential, commercial, and marine construction, our varied expertise facilitates a fresh approach to the unique characteristics of each outdoor living space.
What’s your service area?
We provide service throughout the Texas Panhandle. Based in Amarillo, our targeted service areas include Amarillo, Canyon, Canadian, Clarendon, Dalhart, Hereford, Lubbock, Midland, Odessa, Pampa, Perryton, and Snyder.
Is 806 Outdoors a licensed contractor?
Absolutely. We are in good standing with every city in which we operate and we maintain current insurance and bonding certificates.
I’m ready to improve my outdoor spaces, but I’m unfamiliar with the process. What are some questions I should ask myself when considering a landscape construction project?
Starting a new outdoor project is exciting (and sometimes overwhelming). Some of the most important questions you should consider when starting a new project include:
- Which areas of your property would you like to enhance the most?
- Have you assessed your family’s needs?
- Do you have a budget or timeframe in mind?
- Do you have a survey or builder plan that gives specific property dimensions along with a house footprint?
It’s freezing outside! Have I missed the window to build my outdoor living space?
Summer may have ended, but that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck! We love what we do and we don’t let the unpredictable Panhandle weather slow us down. Warm seasons are definitely the busiest when it comes to fabrication and installation, but we work in the field year-round. Not only that, we also like to help people with the planning and design phases of their projects during the colder months. It’s never too late to start your project!
What type of planning and design services does 806 Outdoors provide?
We provide initial consulting, which includes topics such as material and color selections, pergola orientation, and other preliminary topics related to your project. We also visit each jobsite and identify logistical issues (safety, ease of access, possible overhead/underground obstructions, etc.).
Combining the information gathered from our jobsite visit and customer consultation, we create complete designs that identify the specific materials you select along with the construction methods most appropriate to the intended application. These designs are then paired with a forecasted timeline and cost estimate, which we present to you as a formal project proposal.
If 806 Outdoors designs my project, does that obligate me to hire you for installation?
Not at all! Although we would be thrilled to design and build your project, we understand that special circumstances occasionally prevent that from happening. We gladly provide design and/or installation services.
I already have a design, but I need someone to build it. Will 806 Outdoors install another designer’s plans?
Yes! 806 Outdoors is in the business of client satisfaction. Even if your design is from a third party we would still be grateful for the opportunity to bring your project to life.
What type of construction management services does 806 Outdoors provide?
Consulting doesn’t stop when construction begins. We continue to discuss ideas with you along the way and keep you apprised of unique opportunities to enhance your project.
We regularly update you regarding our crew’s progress, and we vigilantly control costs and unnecessary waste to ensure good stewardship of your project. In the event that specialty subcontractors may be needed, we provide direct supervision to their crews and we verify that their work satisfies our high standards.
What type of landscape construction and hardscape services does 806 Outdoors provide?
Landscape construction and hardscape services are what we love to do, and we specialize in a wide array of applications. Outdoor kitchens, hand carved pergolas, privacy fences, and decorative/colored concrete are some of our favorite types of projects. We also enjoy building exquisite fireplaces and fire pits, built-to-last driveways and sidewalks, retaining walls, and custom masonry.
How does 806 Outdoors charge for design and construction services?
Payment schedules vary based on project size, material selections, and labor requirements.
How often does 806 Outdoors utilize subcontractors?
We believe in fulfilling your vision to the best of our abilities, which occasionally means hiring someone with a skill set different than our own (plumber, electrician, etc.). We have great relationships with several talented and well-respected specialty contractors whom we utilize on an as-needed basis. Every subcontractor we team with is licensed and insured to perform their trade.
Details are important to me. How closely will 806 Outdoors manage the installation of my project?
Our team of experienced project managers will work together to oversee every aspect of your project. Starting with your initial consultation and ending with our final cleanup, we will provide daily, hands-on leadership to ensure that even minor details are completed to your satisfaction.
How much should I expect to spend on my project?
The best way to answer this question is through a preliminary consultation with one of our project managers. During this meeting we can account for the specific details of your vision and put together a realistic estimate that fits your budget. This is a crucial step when determining how much your project will cost, because the final project price is dependent upon many factors such as size, materials, ease of access, site preparation, etc. In other words, be very cautious of anyone who quotes a price over the phone without even visiting your jobsite!
