Portland Outdoor Living Room Design and Build
Drake’s 7 Dees is passionate about Portland landscape design and installation. For our landscape designers, the form and function of your outdoor space is about more than appearance or making a financial investment – it’s about having a great time with the people in your life.
Portland outdoor living rooms provide the opportunity for enjoyment of fresh air year-round in the Pacific Northwest. Often featuring comforts such as cook centers, kitchens, pizza ovens, outdoor furniture, overhead lighting, television, sound systems, and a fireplace or other heating option. Uncovered or covered outdoor living rooms are the perfect place to gather to eat a meal, watch a game, or be the focal point of a party. If you are looking to create just such a space on your property, contact us to get started today.

Why Drake’s Portland Landscape Design and Build
Based in Portland, Drake’s 7 Dees is a full-service landscape design and build company for Portland, Oregon. We take your Portland outdoor living room design and build dreams from initial concept through final completion. This means you spend less time coordinating between designers, contractors, and sub-contractors, and more time enjoying the excellent results.
Licensed Landscape Designers and Building Structure Architects
Drake’s landscape design and build is unique in the Portland area and perhaps in the entire Pacific Northwest in that certain members of our staff are licensed architects. What does this mean for you? If your landscape remodel and renovation will involve any of the following:
- Garden Room
- Covered Outdoor Structure
- Home addition
- Home remodel
- French Doors
- Pool house
- Shed or other outbuilding
there is no need to find or work with a separate architect or builder to complete the project. Projects requiring an architect, engineer, or building permits can be developed by Drake’s Portland architects and landscape designers along with the rest of your property, keeping the design process simple and fast.

Site Analysis Meeting
A Design Associate from Drake’s 7 Dees will meet with you at your home to discuss your landscape goals. Based upon the extent of your landscape desires, the Design Associate will present a ‘Design Proposal’ that represents the number of ‘design hours’ required to produce a set of detailed Landscape Plans specific to your property.
Conceptual Landscape Plan & Preliminary Budget Review
During a ‘working meeting’ at Drake’s 7 Dees office (or phone conference) the Designer will present a Conceptual Landscape Plan based on your input from the Site Analysis meeting. An illustrated ‘plan view’ of your property will be presented which incorporates your stated landscape goals. You will be able to see in concrete ways what your landscape is going to look like when we’re done. Construction material selections will also be discussed and chosen at this time. A ‘Statement of Values’ will provide preliminary construction costs for the various elements of the Landscape Plan. As a working meeting, this will be the time for your input to help us craft a plan for your home’s landscaping that meets both your aesthetic and budget objectives.
Landscape Plan Presentation & Construction Proposal
A final Design Meeting will be scheduled with the Senior Designer to present the revised Landscape Plan and an itemized Construction Proposal for the installation of your new landscape. Modifications to the ‘scope of services’ presented in the Construction Proposal can be accomplished at this time. Your approval of the Landscape Plan and your Signature on the Construction Proposal will give Drake’s 7 Dees the ‘thumbs up’ to schedule the transformation of your landscape.
