Business Profile: Oakwoods Landscape Construction & Design creates for the client

by | Mar 7, 2024 | Business, Featured

The Dmytrycks

The Dmytrycks (Brian, Julian and Sara, with Sloane and pup Sydney in front) understand the importance of a warm and welcoming home exterior.

Brian Dmytryck opened Oakwoods Landscape Construction, Inc., in 2002 with one goal in mind: Create unique, personalized outdoor living spaces for his clients’ homes and businesses that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.

With a driving passion for his craft, Brian started to build his company while apprenticing in construction.

“We had some downtime, so I took on some side jobs,” he recalls.

Word of mouth spread, and those side jobs led to more. The business took root and quickly grew from lawn service to full-service. Today, Oakwoods serves all of eastern Massachusetts and handles patios, decks and porches; outdoor kitchens; outdoor fireplaces and fire pits; walkways, walls and front steps; outdoor lighting; landscapes, flowers and plants; arbors and pergolas; and even pools and other water features.

Sara Dmytryck, Brian’s wife, handles office operations as well as the design work. She says the most important aspect of her approach to designing a new project is the conversation with the client.

“They will need to use the space in ways unique to them,” she explains, adding that most people have an idea of what they want, even when they think they don’t.

Part of her mission is to listen to what’s not being said, and ask questions to uncover the client’s needs and vision.

“If it works for me but not for them, it’s a complete failure!” she says. “Functionally, it ultimately doesn’t matter whether I like the design if it doesn’t work for the homeowner.”

Sara recommends maximizing natural materials — greenery, stones, water — to create a tranquil, relaxing environment. She notes that exterior improvements can give new life to property and add value to a home. And Oakwoods customers can rest assured that their patio and walkway work comes backed by a manufacturer’s warranty.

Another important element of an outdoor area is lighting. Oakwoods offers landscape lighting services, designed and installed by expert professionals using the latest technology to enhance the overall design. Every step is executed with the closest attention to detail.

Partners in every sense, the Dmytrycks say it’s great working together and sharing a purpose.

“It’s nice to be on the same page in life,” says Brian. “We know what the other one’s going through. And when we finish a project, we can come through it and say, ‘We completed that together.’ ”

Sara agrees: “It can be challenging, but the rewarding aspects far outweigh any negative aspects,” she says.

The Dmytrycks (including 9-year-old daughter Sloane and soon-to-be-7-year-old son Julian) have been Hopkinton residents for six years, having relocated from nearby Millis. When they aren’t designing and building spaces for their clients, they enjoy spending time in the fresh air with family and friends.

Oakwoods Landscape Construction & Design is located at 1275 Main Street in Millis. Anyone interested in planning their dream exterior can contact Brian or Sara at oakwoodslandscaping@live.com or 508-376-5197.
