Services Overview


We know first hand how intimidating the construction process can be. We have been consumers ourselves, undergoing exterior improvements and all of the issues that arise from the process. We have also been builders, understanding the benefits of a well thought out design. We can assist you during the most critical stage of a project, the design process! We believe that having a central design for you proposed exterior improvements makes good sense. Many homeowners make the mistake of collecting different designs and subsequently different bids from different construction companies. Falling into this trap is understandable as many contractors offer their rough designs for free to the homeowner. Unfortunately, this approach usually brings about more confusion than clarity. Imagine the reality of having three different plans before you with three different bids! Unless you are very versed in construction exterior construction practices you will find this process confusing, irritating and potentially very costly! This is where the Morton Design Group comes in. We can provide you with a single, well thought out conceptual plan, that accommodates your needs and your budget. We work closely with you, listening to your needs (see testimonials) and desires. We have over 20 years of design and construction experience to draw from, literally!

Working with Brad Morton and the Morton Design Group has been a pleasure. While we only just completed the design and we have not even selected a contractor yet, Brad has helped us visualize the project through his use of 3D Video fly through videos. Brad had several ideas that without the use of 3D video renderings, we would have struggled to envision, but once we saw the flow of the project in the renderings, we knew we had the right plan. I would highly recommend Brad to anyone looking to do a stylish and functional holistic design for their landscape/hardscape.Read More

Brad was fantastic to work with and created a plan that far surpassed expectations. His price was great, and the end result was so wonderful, we couldn't recommend him enough. Thank you Brad.Read More

Wow this architect is a total PRO! We met and walked through the project and he provided a creative and modern solution to our tired yard. The review process was simple and easy and we had our opportunity to collaborate and fine tune the plans. The best part was that his plans were so detailed it sailed through our difficult association with no changes! A huge time and money savor. Also Brad;s designs are on budget for our construction. I would highly recommend Brad!Read More

What an AMAZING experience it was to use Morton Design Group for the design of our Spa/Pool. If you combine the excellent skills set of the designer with the 3-D Modeling service MDG offers assisting you in visualizing your future outcome, you can't go wrong. Brad was the designer responsible of our project, he was very professional, highly qualified, on time and GREAT in communication. It was a such a pleasure working with him from the day he came to our house for our first visit until he delivered the final design. During the design phase of the project we were able to schedule ZOOM meeting to review the project and make live changes using the the 3-D Modeling tool, the outcome is far beyond our BEST EXPECTATION, The end result is just INCREDIBLE.

If you want a fantastic yard, pool, and/or landscape, you should definitely choose the Morton Design Group. Brad is an active listener, easy to work with, and incredibly talented. He can take your ideas and make them come to life - and, if you don't have ideas, he can certainly help guide you there. We love the 3D visual tour that Brad includes with his designs. He does a video fly-through that really helps you visualize the finished product. It's so compelling, you will want to show your friends so they can be equally awed by the experience. To repeat, if you want an incredible looking outdoor area, the Morton Design Group is the way to go!Read More

You will be amazed at what MDG designs for you! Brad Morton will listen to your needs and plan something extraodinary, down to the very last detail. In order to help you visualize, you will receive a 3D fly-by video of your home with the new design. It's awesome! There is a thorough, thought out reason for every element in his design, but if you request any changes he is quick to accommodate. Once you finalize and approve your design, you will receive an extensive set of color plans with every detail needed to complete your project. Should you choose MDG, you will NOT be disappointed!Read More

When my wife and I bought our home one of the primary factors in our decision was in the size of the lot and the ability to build a large and robust outdoor living area. We found Brad and the Morton Design Group through our homeowners association - Parkhurst and upon meeting Brad and seeing his work we knew that he was our choice. Brad was responsive, professional and patient as we settled in with our design. The ability for us to see the design via the 3-D services that Morton Design offered was so helpful in the design stage and absolutely made the process quicker and much more effective. We highly recommend Brad and the Morton Design Group.Read More

My wife and I were referred to Brad Morton from a very meticulous client of mine. Brad came highly recommended. On our first meeting regarding our yard, Brad was very attentive to what we wanted and also managed our expectations with his vast knowledge of what can and cannot be done in the plans when it comes to the HOA. We received our first set of plans, and only had to make minor changes. My wife is very analytical, and Brad took his time to answer many of her detailed questions. Once our plans where complete, I found out I was being transferred out of state for work. We let Brad know of our impending move and sale of our home, and he took the time to print off the plans and make a very beautiful display for potential buyers of our home to view, so they could get an understanding of what is possible with our yard. We are very Grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Brad.Read More
