About our Process

How does Outside My Nest work?

Once you purchase an Outside My Nest design package, you’ll complete an online onboarding process. During this phase, you’ll provide photos, videos, inspiration images, answer questions about your preferences, and take a style quiz.

After submitting your onboarding materials, our team will create a model of your home and property, serving as the canvas for your design. You’ll receive your House Model approximately a week later.

Following the House Model, you’ll receive the first draft of your design renders within three to four weeks. This stage is interactive, allowing you to provide feedback in our Feedback Studio. We’ll respond to your questions and feedback, implementing revisions to refine your final design.

At the end of the process, you’ll receive your final design, which includes photorealistic 3D renders or illustrative 2D renders, a detailed plant, material, and furniture list, along with other deliverables based on your selected package.

Our Build Support team will then connect you with a vetted contractor in your area to bring your design to life.

How do you determine my style?

At the start of the Outside My Nest design process, you’ll complete a thorough style quiz, answer questions about your yard’s form and function, and share inspiration photos. With this information, we gain insight into your vision for your outdoor space.

What can you tell me about Outside My Nest designers?

Our designers at Outside My Nest are industry experts, holding bachelor’s and master’s degrees in design and landscape architecture. We provide a platform for these talented professionals to collaborate on projects like yours, delivering exceptional results efficiently.

Can I communicate with my designer during the design process?

As an Outside My Nest client, you’ll have a dedicated team working behind the scenes on your design, including a designer or architect, a horticulturist, a build expert, and our Customer Support (CS) team. While direct communication with designers during the design process is not a standard feature, we offer a Premium package that includes calls with our team. If you opt for the standard package but later wish to discuss your ideas or feedback with our team, you can book a call for a fee.

How does Outside My Nest select the right plants for my property?

We have built a comprehensive plant database that considers planting zones, sunlight, shade, water requirements, styles, and unique features like “deer-proof” and “pet-friendly.” During your onboarding, you’ll have the opportunity to take a plant preferences quiz. We also use satellite imagery, along with detailed photos and videos of your property, to assess sun and shade patterns throughout the day. Our horticulturist makes the final decisions when selecting plants

With years of experience in the industry, our company has established a strong reputation for excellence and reliability. We have a proven track record of delivering outstanding results and have helped countless individuals achieve their dreams. Our commitment to continuous learning and innovation ensures that we stay ahead of the curve and provide the best solutions for our clients. Choose our company and let us be your partner in success.
