From concept to completion, providing a seamless connection between
the Designed and Built Environment.
For twenty years, Dynamic Environments, located in Boerne, TX, has been on the leading edge of the turnkey, Total Environment design / build concept. Its early business goal was to improve the client's experience by consolidating the design and construction of all facets of the exterior landscape development project. Taking that full responsibility ensures a high quality product, simplifies the design and construction processes while also controlling costs. This concept ensures that the client's project
is built to the landscape architect's rigorous standards and plan specifications.

The Total Environment design / build concept set a precedent for outdoor projects at the time which
had typically lacked master plans and where the various swimming pool, landscape, and sprinklers contractors, etc. had to be independently contracted by the homeowner. The resulting project was frequently fragmented in design, construction, and often unappealing and dysfunctional.

Today, Dynamic Environments continues to refine and expand its services to improve its Total Environment design / build concept to ensure the discriminating client a resource to make their
outdoor dreams a reality. The Company's regional, national and international design awards, the high quality finished projects and the enthusiastic recommendations from its clients attest to the creativity and innovation Dynamic Environments brings to the industry. With direction of the company president, John Hackett, Dynamic Environments is able to manage all aspects that are required in large-scale residential construction. The personal involvement of John throughout the project enables him to
provide a level of service and project coordination that is invaluable to the client and or the homebuilder. John Hackett - President
