About Creative Outdoor Designs & Installations

Our Philosophy

  • We partner with our clients to help them manifest their creativity, so that every project is a true expression of their desires and personality.
  • Our integrity keeps C.O.D.I. on the project until every client is completely satisfied.
  • C.O.D.I. maintains a respectful work environment that has contributed to the loyalty of its crew of 25 – 28 years.
  • C.O.D.I. is proud to support the families of its men and is dedicated to their well being.
  • Pride, joy and gratitude surround every project we do no matter the size.


Artistic, Custom Design Work

Today, many companies rely on a limited range of standardized forms and materials. Every project we do is uniquely designed to fit the needs and desires of our clients. We believe that in every person is a highly creative artist, so much of our preparation lies in assisting clients to describe their own inner images of beauty. We rarely have to come up with ideas all by ourselves, because with coaching, our clients imagine such exquisite scenarios.


A Process of Integrity & Craftsmanship

We typically complete only one job at a time – our customers have our full care and attention. After almost 30 years, we have a well seasoned team of craftsmen, dedicated to quality and detail. Russell Ponzoha, owner & designer, has an associate’s degree in architecture with an artistic eye. He is involved with every step of the creative process and is often on the job site 90% of the time. A large part of our reward is our customer’s satisfaction. In service of this, we strive for perfection.
