“Thank you so much for my wonderful bluestone patio! This is only the first step in the overall property design we developed and I couldn’t be happier. You patiently worked through the challenges of the designated space, taking care to ensure that all my concerns for my favorite tree and sight lines were met, and you did a simply fantastic job realigning my antique brick walk, which looks as though it has always been where it is now. And it sets off the bluestone perfectly! I was impressed with the quality workmanship shown by you and your crew, but even more impressed by the extra care and attention to detail you took to ensure that not only would my patio look beautiful now, but would continue to perform well in the future. Thank you as well for your follow up visits to make sure there were no problems. Wow! You exceeded my expectations. I’ve received nothing but compliments on the job and my neighbors even wanted to know how to get in touch with you. I spent many happy and relaxing hours in my new outdoor “room” this past summer. I am so pleased that I chose your company.”

“Jock Lewendon, the main man at Outdoor Living Spaces, planned and installed our landscaping more than 15 years ago, and we’re still amazed at the eye he had for creating distinct but gently connected spaces starting from scratch — we had nothing but a big oddly shaped lawn, and he gave us a whole new series of interconnected places to enjoy and live in out of doors. The details of what he and his crew did don’t come close to the final results, but here are a few: He put in a paver rear patio and front landing, gravel and bluestone walkways, a low fence across the front, large planting beds, a “living fence” of evergreens across the back, various hardwood trees, numerous rhodos and azaleas and — the crowning touch — a small pond set off by a variety of medium-size evergreens and a lovely bloodgood maple, right where we can watch the visiting birds and our favorite little frog sunning himself during breakfast. Jock’s motif for the entire design was the curve — not the straight line — which provided a softness, not an unnatural hardness, to our yard and garden. On top of everything, he stayed with us as time passed and the plants began maturing (replacing the bloodgood, which had been a gift from a dear relative, when it died prematurely, and helping us select additional plants that we planted ourselves to enhance his design). Thanks, Jock — and all the other guys — for the place we call our Peaceful Kingdom.”
“Thank you so much for our beautiful patio. We are thrilled with it. I would like to say how much I appreciated your attention to detail, and with involving me in some of the changes throughout the project. Also, thank you for redoing the steps – they look so good and I am grateful that you spent the extra time and effort in getting them just right, along with the changes to the edging. I would recommend your work to anyone.”
“It has been our good fortune to work with Jock on several projects to create a haven in our backyard. Whether it was design ideas for garden layout, plant selections, hardscape design or solving drainage problems inherent to our property, Jock was always knowledgeable and creative in his approach. He listened to our needs and then developed a plan that blended seamlessly with our surroundings. He was attentive to even the smallest details and ensured that everything was done to the highest quality. You can’t go wrong with Outdoor Living Spaces!”

“Our first landscape project with Jock Lewendon, owner of Outdoor Living Spaces, LLC was back in 1995. We were thoroughly pleased with his work and worked with him again and again over the years. Our most recent projects were a small pond with a waterfall and a bluestone path and patio including the surrounding landscape. Jock’s incredible vision transformed the Do-it-Yourself project we had started into a spectacular waterfall and pond. His practical yet amazingly creative design for the bluestone patio and path transformed our backyard into a beautiful outdoor living space. Without exception, Jock has exceeded our expectations on every project he has designed and installed for us.
We look forward to many more projects with Jock and Outdoor Living Spaces – can’t imagine working with anyone else.”

In the Summer of 2010 I had an in-ground pool installed. Outdoor Living Spaces, LLC, worked with me for months developing a plan to transform my backyard into our little oasis. The results were spectacular. Jock Lewendon, the owner of Outdoor Living Spaces, LLC was able to work within my budget and still accomplish all that was promised. He was reliable throughout the many stages of planning. Jock was able to work with the other contractors and was accommodating to everyone else’s wants and needs. His design talents are exceptional. I would highly recommend Jock Lewendon and his company Outdoor Living Spaces, LLC to anyone.
“Jock Lewendon, owner of Outdoor Living Spaces, is an experienced landscape designer. He came to my home to discuss ideas for the garden area in front of my house and to measure the space. Next, he emailed a sketch of his design with a list of trees, shrubs and plants (including the existing plantings). Attached was an estimate for the cost of materials and labor. The project was completed on time and very close to the estimate. It met all my expectations. Jock’s sense of design enabled him to create a beautiful area that enhances the front of my property.”
