Offering Luxurious Furnishings and Top-Notch Service, Outdoor Living Elevates Southern Utah Backyards – St George News
CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — Southern Utah is the perfect place to spend time outdoors, and having a garden that’s as comfortable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing as your indoor living space elevates the enjoyment of your home. Outdoor Living, a premium patio retailer in St. George, is where luxury meets the outdoors.
live outside offers fine furniture and accessories designed to enhance any garden and help homeowners look at their outdoor spaces in a new light. As a small, locally owned and operated business, they have built a reputation for connecting with the community they serve.
“We’re not looking to sell the most product, but to really build relationships with our customers and grow the business organically that way,” Chief Executive Amanda Lisardo said. “It was an enriching experience to work in this spirit.”
Outdoor Living was created by Collins Stuart, a local entrepreneur and owner of The Awning Company. While installing patio covers in homes in southern Utah, he noticed that many backyards lacked quality furniture. Most of his customers told him they had to travel outside of St. George to buy patio products.
Recognizing an unmet need in the community, he first opened a small patio furniture store offering products at low prices. Although he has no retail experience, he is dedicated to caring for customers with the same commitment to personal service that drives his awning business.
“Nobody here is in a rush,” Lisardo said. “We take our time to create what the client needs, whether it’s a certain look or just something in stock.”
Over time, Stuart found that most buyers were interested in customization and premium labels. Today, Outdoor Living offers a selection of top brands including Castelle, Brown Jordan, Woodard, Mallin, Lane Venture, Ratana, Jensen Leisure and many more. The store proudly sells labels designed and manufactured in the USA, such as Tropitone and OW Lee; about 55% of their inventory is American-made.
Customers can design their custom backyard with furniture from a single product line or several different collections, adjusting colors and details to suit their unique tastes.
“Almost everything in our store can be personalized,” Lisardo said. “A lot of products have 20 different finishes and 200 different fabrics to choose from.”
It’s this combination of small-town friendly service and high-end product lines that keep people coming back. Customers often stop by just to say hello, see how the business is doing, or share how much they appreciate their furniture.
Although custom orders may be delayed due to supply chain issues and increased demand, items from the warehouse will be delivered to customers anywhere between Salt Lake City and Las Vegas within 48 hours of the command. The delivery agent provides top-notch service, Lisardo said, from unpacking to inflating the pillows. They also make sure everything is in perfect condition and working properly.
If customers have any issues with their purchase, Outdoor Living’s warranty team is ready to help. They honor all manufacturer warranties and will help customers start the process of filing a repair or replacement claim.
Over the past seven years, Outdoor Living has established itself as Southern Utah’s place for anyone looking to customize their backyard. The sales team strives to educate customers that outdoor spaces should be a priority, not an afterthought. When carefully designed, they invite owners and guests to spend as much time outdoors as they do indoors.
