For five generations, the Derakhshan family has worked as real estate developers, builders, designers, and contractors. Navid and Omid Derakhshan, the co-founders of Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces, began their careers at an early age, helping out on their father’s construction sites. Navid, an Emory trained biologist, and Omid, a civil engineer from Georgia Tech, started Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces in 2001 under the leadership of their father. The seamless integration of two very different disciplines from Navid and Omid is what introduced the concept of Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces to the metro Atlanta area.

Today, led by CEO & co-founder Navid Derakhshan, Outdoor Makeover & Living Spaces offers an all-inclusive and holistic approach to landscape and construction services with the full capability to re-envision any outdoor space. We believe in good quality service in every aspect, and install long-lasting projects backed by the longest warranty in the industry. We build it right, and promise to exceed your expectations! Throughout our many years of providing exceptional service, the company has been awarded “Best Atlanta Contractor” by Angie’s List, has achieved over 200 awards collaboratively, and is truly living up to the title of the ‘Best in the Business’!
