“I interviewed at least 10 contractors to install my patio, driveway, front walkway, firepit and water fountain. I found Bryce through a local ad and from the moment I called him I just knew… Bryce and his team were clearly the BEST choice.
Bryce sat with my husband and I for hours. He visited with us many times before work began and listened to EVERY idea we had, no matter how crazy it was. He explained all of my options (both with his company and the other contractors) to make sure we were getting a job done the proper way. His patience and honesty are truly the reason I hired him. His team also works by that philosophy. They were always on time, very neat and always willing to go to any lengths to make sure we were satisfied.
And thanks to Bryce’s amazing creative vision, my dream patio is even better than I could have imagined. He kept us within our budget but gave us so much more than we could have ever hoped for. This is the 3rd year enjoying all of our amenities. We use them all year long! Everything Bryce promised has held true. The materials still look brand new, because he only uses the best. We have not had one problem. Not one! And every time I call or text Bryce to ask him about future work, he calls me back the same day! What contractor does that?
Bryce’s work has really changed our lives. The BBQ’s, parties and family gatherings are constant and have brought so much happiness to our home. You can sleep easy when you hire Bryce. He is the ONLY choice.”

“Bryce, Jason, and their team have turned my overgrown backyard into the oasis of our dreams. After struggling with where to place our pool and utilizing our space the best we could for our whole family, we became discouraged listening to other designers’ ideas that seemed to not listen to what we really wanted. But fortunately after meeting with Bryce we immediately knew he saw our vision and understood what we were looking for.
At that point, they started the design process and kept us in the loop during the process. Seeing the 3D imaging that they rendered and being able to virtually walk through my yard was extremely helpful. not only the placement of pool and masonry work, and colors of flowers, but also with the selection of and placement of outdoor furniture. We absolutely love our new backyard!”

“Thank you for the great backyard transformation! We had no idea it would turn out as beautiful as it did. The workmanship and fortitude of all the work crews were amazing and very well coordinated. Our complete scope of work included extensive stonework, landscaping, lighting, sound system, electrical and pool work. Miraculously it all came together perfectly with Jason and Bryce spearheading the design and management of the complete project.
We are forever thankful to your team of their easy nature, ability to execute well and on time and your dedication to details. Our yard looks like a resort and we have all of you to thank for this wonderful new living space of ours!”

Bryce, Jason and Lisa are an incredible team and I cannot imagine doing a backyard project without their work to help bring it to life. I had maybe 50 revisions and they never hesitated to help perfect the vision. Thanks guys!

Bryce, Jason and the DWE team are amazing designers that can bring your vision to life. My husband and I have spent a lot of time traveling and wanted to have a modern, resort style feel in our own backyard. We instantly connected with Bryce and he was able to understand our taste and after meeting us he showed us an outdoor living space in 3-D that took our breath away. He knew we were looking for something different. Clean lines, modern style with an amazing (award winning) pool with hot tub combination, unique water features, a huge outdoor kitchen and bar, gas fire-pit lounge all styled with white marble and stone, black raven accent and a pop of color. They held our hand through the entire process. Together we chose fire features, elements of color in lighting, sound systems, stone, landscaping, appliances, shower heads, furniture, and the list goes on and on. DWE managed every aspect of this project from the design, to hiring the vendors, to managing the entire process to completion. We would have never been able to have done this without Bryce and the team. We absolutely love our backyard and cannot wait for the 2018 season to begin. As we see various magazines, catalogues, mailers and online ads featuring our yard, we can't believe that it is ours! This beautiful, elegant, one of a kind yard is now our reality... all thanks to Designing With Elements. We highly recommend using DWE, regardless of the size of your project. The outcome of your work will be second to none!

Working with this company was such a pleasure from start to finish! They can turn anything, whether large or small, into an absolute paradise. My family and I have been enjoying the wonderful backyard they've helped us design. This is our second summer and we still can't believe what they've helped us create every time we step out back, it's our own little oasis and I can't thank them enough!

I can't say enough good things about this firm. They have an excellent process from start to finish and their outstanding customer service is unlike any I have experienced in this industry. From the beginning when Bryce came over to our house to discuss the design of our backyard, we knew we were in good hands. The 3-D renderings were fantastic and allowed us to virtually walk through the backyard before the work even began. The team delivered everything they said they would and in many cases ahead of schedule. Even when it came to designing the layout of the backyard, they worked with us through several designs until we were happy with what they were suggesting. They are quite skilled at looking at a space and helping you to envision what it could turn into. In the end we settled on a pool, a new Nicolock stone patio and a covered structure over the patio. The team recommended several different contractors for the different tasks and brought them over so that we could interview them and feel comfortable with our choice. The project started on time with the pool being dug in early November. They were fantastic, they stayed true to their timeline and by the end of November the pool was in, the patio was almost done and the covered structure was halfway finished. A representative from the team was there every morning before the work begin to ensure that the contractors knew what needed to be done and the team also came back at the end of the day to make sure that the work was done to specification. But the true test of a good project manager is not when a project is going well and there are no issues. You know you have an excellent project manager when there are challenges and they rise to the occasion to solve those challenges without the customer feeling any stress at all. And that is exactly what the team at Designing with the Elements did. One of the contractors hired a number of subcontractors, collected payment for the project and never paid his subcontractors. Even though the contract was between myself and the contractor, the team at Designing with the Elements quickly stepped in and took control of the situation. They reached out to every single subcontractor and negotiated financially feasible solutions with all involved in an effort to protect me, the homeowner. They handled a very challenging situation like pros and still managed to complete the project on time and within budget. Jason stayed very close to the project as it was winding down to ensure that they delivered on everything they promised. He was the consummate professional and was available at every turn to respond to my questions and help us understand what the next step was. My backyard looks fantastic. It's like an oasis every time I step outside, and I know I will be enjoying it for many years to come. I could not be happier with every aspect of this project and the oversight that Designing with Elements provided. Thank you Jason and Bryce!

Bryce and has team have been extremely easy to work with, and the quality of there work has been top notch. They've saved of substantial money by making changes to the plans, not changes after work had been started. Investing in them is worth every penny. We could not be happier!
– Mike N
Great customer service! Blown away by the first design they presented for my front yard. Definitely calling them for future plans for the outdoor kitchen and pool
