  • We HIGHLY recommend Colao & Peter!

    Incredible! This is how we would describe our experience with Colao & Peter. They listened to our ideas and were able to design and build the backyard of our dreams. The attention to detail and perfectionism in each piece of the project was evident. We had constant communication with our design team. From the first call with Lauren to the first design meeting with the team. Dave created a beautiful design. Joe’s unique vision helped us see develop the “Resort Feel” we wanted. The quality of the work is unparalleled. The stonework was just amazing. All the Colao & Peter workers take so much pride in their workmanship and they are also very professional. Finally, our Project Manager Justin was there for us at every turn returning text and calls 24/7. You will NOT be disappointed!!

  • The crew over performed the day of the job!

    I was introduced to Colao & Peter by a neighbor. Lauren Berk responded to my initial call. Lauren was professional and very knowledgeable. Most importantly, she understood what I was looking for in my landscape. They ended up mulching the whole backyard because they wanted to leave the space looking perfect! I highly recommend this company!

  • We had a fantastic experience with Colao & Peter!

    They do gorgeous work and we couldn’t be happier. We were so impressed with their attention to detail, creativity, innovative solutions to challenges presented by our small yard, and their commitment to making sure we were happy throughout the process. They are exceptionally good at project management and communication, which can be huge problems with home improvement projects. The entire team was great to work with; I would recommend Colao & Peter without hesitation.

  • This company is what it truly means to be a team.

    I am a designer in more than one facet and can vouch for the beautiful, expedient, and meticulous work of Colao & Peter. I was hired as a consultant and after my experience felt that it was necessary that I wrote a review! My most notable observation was regarding the relationship that Colao & Peter created between themselves and the client. Everyone at Colao & Peter, regardless of their amount of interaction with client, was excited invested in creating the best experience not only after the project was completed but also during the process. This is something that is not always true of the fields at Colao & Peter reside among. But I found especially impressive was that Colao & Peter were completely invested in their client’s experience. What I mean is that the success of the company is not based on the broken backs of what may be referred to as the most entry-level positions of the company. Rather, the owners: Joe Colao and J.R. Peter, were equally as excited invested and therefore willing to do whatever was to ensure their relationship with the client was one that stood benefit everyone, not only the themselves and the client. This company is what it truly means to be a team. I am excited to have been able to work with them and I look forward to hearing about their successes in the future.

  • Colao & Peter Luxury Outdoor Living is a shining example of excellence - highly recommend!!

    When it comes to selecting a professional grounds maintenance and landscaping company in the Haymarket area, none compare to Colao and Peter Luxury Outdoor Living. They offer a broad selection of services that transformed the health of my lawn and shrubs, as well as improved the aesthetic beauty of my entire property, in just one growing season.

    I just can’t say enough about how pleased and impressed I am with their crew members who demonstrate their expertise and commitment to perfection each and every time they are at my home. Their Operations Manager, Joe Ryder, is quick to respond to any question I have and keeps me informed of when special services will be performed on my property. In an age of complacency, Colao and Peter Luxury Outdoor Living is a shining example of excellence – highly recommend!!

  • We love the finished work and are constantly receiving compliments on the work.

    We hired Colao & Peter to build a residential pool in a tight backyard space. We had spoken with several other builders, including national chains. We decided to use Colao & Peter because of their thoughtful and personalized pool and landscape design. Their team is focused on the details and have the experience and expertise to execute it in impressive ways. Their landscape design was beautiful, the masonry work was excellent, and the pool superb. We love the finished work and are constantly receiving compliments on the work. They have transformed a rarely used backyard space in the hot and humid summer into a wonderful outdoor extension of our home.

  • They are very professional and attend to every detail.

    In one of the rainiest summers on record, Colao & Peter was able to deliver our fabulous pool and spa, large patio, and pavilion with attached chimney and fireplace, just as we had dreamed! They are very professional and attend to every detail. Even when there were a few minor supply issues, unrelated to their company, they dealt with it quickly and professionally. They keep winning awards as well! My wife and I highly recommend them.

  • Colao & Peter's outstanding team made communication effortless.

    In 2017 we were hired by a client from VA to design a very unique outdoor living space. Upon completion of the design, we stayed on as consultants from Florida, and the client hired Colao & Peter as a local builder in VA to bring their project to life. Even with hundreds of miles between us, Colao & Peter’s outstanding team made communication effortless, they met all their deadlines, and they completely implemented the clients vision perfectly!

  • The entire project team was great!

    The Project Manager assigned really kept us updated as they made progress on our Deck and Patio! The design that they came up with for the entire backyard is perfect! The customization detail really matched the Deck/Patio to the Georgian style of our home!

  • Not only can I highly recommend them but would gladly hire them again.

    I bought a house in DC with a pool that needed a real face lift. After doing some research, I hired Joe Colao of Colao & Peter to guide me through the process. I can honestly say the pool looks and feels completely new and that I am thankful for his recommendations and the work done by his team!
