Outdoor Spaces designs and manages the installation of landscapes and outdoor living spaces in Northern Virginia and the DC metro area. We are a unique company built on a solid background of design and construction. With a young and driven team, Outdoor Spaces offers innovative and creative design solutions for all of your outdoor living needs.

When Erik Moden and Evan Clower launched Outdoor Spaces, they wanted to develop a company that could help homeowners see the potential in their properties and provide the imagination needed to design and create a dream space. With a background in landscape architecture and a vast knowledge of construction, Erik and Evan have used their talents to design and build a wide array of projects throughout the DC area. They have used their youthful creativity and innovative style to transform out-dated and boring properties into outdoor living spaces that will be enjoyed for years to come. Outdoor Spaces strives to create outdoor living areas that are a continuation of the home, and believe that the indoor lifestyle no longer needs to end when you walk outdoors. They are outright passionate about their work, and provide a personal connection and attention to detail that sets them apart.

Outdoor Spaces is a small design firm with big ideas!  Outdoor Spaces wants to be considered your single-source for all of your outdoor living needs. Many of our projects are large and complex, but we tackle smaller projects with the same commitment. Our installers are true craftsman, who are extensively trained in their field, and are personally managed by one (or both) of our owners to ensure the highest craftsmanship, quality, and your complete satisfaction. Your landscape will be custom designed, personally managed, and professionally maintained to ensure the beauty and integrity of your landscape.
