Don’t Wait for Someday, Create Your Outdoor Oasis Today

Let’s face it – we all have our list of “someday” projects, but if the last year has taught us anything, it’s that we shouldn’t wait for the perfect time to dive into a long-anticipated dream. Whether you want to be the “go-to” house so your kids spend more time at home, create a vacation space in your backyard that you can enjoy anytime, or plan to host family and friends to celebrate special occasions, Oasis Outdoor has you covered. We are ready to help you repurpose your bland outdoor living space into something beautiful, both in form and function.

Our goal is to provide a seamless transition from your home to your outdoor space and make it a part of your overall floorplan. With more of us working from home indefinitely, wouldn’t it be great to take your laptop outside with your coffee in the morning and listen to the birds while sifting through your morning emails? We want to help you create the backyard of your dreams, an outdoor oasis for relaxation and so much more.

Whether it be a lush landscape, a backyard oasis with a swimming pool, or an alfresco kitchen to entertain family and friends, our team will guide you through a step-by-step design and build process.


Initial Contact: Oasis Outdoor starts with an individualized approach for each customer, working to provide realistic expectations, clearly communicate what we can provide and scheduling a meeting at your home. The initial contact may come in the form of a phone call to the office at 317-485-6514 or via the website’s online form at

During the first meeting at your home, we tour your property, highlighting elements you want to include, pointing out any issues we see and honing the details of your vision. Once we’ve set a budget for the project, a landscape architect will conduct an independent site analysis, record comprehensive measurements and take additional photos.

Design Agreement: The next step in our process is to turn the conceptual design into a visual rendering of your project. The design agreement includes a fee that will go toward your project cost when you decide to sign on with us. The design will provide you with details of your individual landscape elements as well as include 3D renderings and material selections which will help throughout the process. Our goal during this process is to take your ideas and bring them to digital life. Homeowners can also visit our design center where they can learn about various options and see more examples of products.

Build Process: We not only design your outdoor space; we construct it to meet all your needs. We are hands-on during this process to ensure the same level of quality is met from day one to the finished product. We are your single-source for design and build services.

Our seasoned team will use expertise, knowledge and design background to make your outdoor space your personal oasis. They include Andrew Helmkamp, Director of Sales; Rob Shea, Director of Design; Derrick Imes and Project Manager; Carlos Rodriguez.
