OuterElements can trace its roots back to 1958 when founder, Sherman Shepherd, began his first construction company. Three generations later, OuterElements is still family owned and operated as a group of companies involved in all aspects of construction.

OuterElements was formed to offer clients the outdoor spaces they’ve always dreamed of. We focus on the client experience from start to finish with our full service approach, including design, site prep, landscapes, hardscapes.
