ABOUT US

We appreciate that you’ve made your way to this page. It means we’ve piqued your interest and you’d like to get to know us better. So, allow us to introduce ourselves. EEC’s core team is comprised of a handful of seasoned industry professionals, spicy and grilled! We have an insatiable desire to create the highest quality, functional and visually captivating outdoor landscapes in AZ. There’s so much pride that goes into our work, it’s like you’ll be swimming in a pool filled with our tears!

Whether you love to float lazily in the pool or serve up BBQ and beers by the fire – we’ve done it all and we’ve done it WELL. We understand you have a lot of options to choose from in a design/build firm and we sincerely look forward to earning your business. Once we earn your business, we strive to earn your glowing praise and referrals to friends, family or anyone that crosses your path that needs our services!

We understand that integrity is a virtue and something that is lacking in our industry. It’s unfortunate but the reality is there are many companies that will smile and YES you to death to collect a check/make their sales numbers. We are not one of them. We’re your  partner and your advocate. We’re your teacher and your facilitator. We’re the mechanism to achieving your vision and custom outdoor living concept. 

So, what can you expect? Expect that we’ll let you know exactly what to expect. We do all that we can to minimize surprises so our projects go as smoothly as possible. If we’re being realistic, construction is known to experience scheduling conflicts at times, so just expect that and if it doesn’t happen – you’ll be even more impressed with our service. That and the weather/rain are the only things beyond our control. 

Lastly, we want you to know you’re not working with employees of a company that work  9 – 5 and pretend you don’t exist when they’re off the clock. We are hands on and here for you! Seven days a week, nights, weekends, whatever it takes to get the job done! We make sure you are 100% in love with what we bring to the table. We would never build something for a client that we wouldn’t put in our own backyards.

INNOVATION STARTS HERE

MEET THE EEC TEAM

Drew Nelson

co-owner and CAD master/Designer

Andrew “Drew” Nelson

I am a graduate of Arizona State University in Industrial Design. I joined the landscape and construction industry while still in school and took to it like a duck to water. I have spent several years working with some of the larger companies here in the Valley, which taught me the industry ins and outs and design elements for desert living. Originally from Boston, the desert was a new and fascinating ecosystem for me. I learned all I could about the type of terrain and native plants and trees that would end up being a big part of my career. Once I discovered I had a knack for the design elements of landscape, it was only natural to progress to the pool side of the industry. Learning all I could about the engineering, building and construction of pools has been an ongoing education for me. I love to discover new things that improve the quality of the product and enable clients to enjoy their outdoor living space to the fullest. My main focus for new projects is how ‘form meets function’ to create custom environments that clients can enjoy for years to come!

Juan Yepiz

I have been in the landscape and pool construction industry for over 20 years – which is my entire adult life! At 17, I joined my brother who was working for a landscape company at the time. After a year or so, I felt a desire to pursue a degree in business administration as I was always intrigued by the management side of business. I attended university in Mexico but only briefly. It did not take me long to figure out that sitting in a room behind a desk was not for me. I was called back to the great outdoors! For the next 16 years,  I worked for a company that, under my oversight, grew to be one of the largest and most reputable pool and landscape companies in the Valley. From the time I was a teenager, I absorbed all there was to learn about all facets of not only construction but management. I have overseen the construction of 1000+ custom pools in my career, managing multiple crews daily. One day, I recognized that I possessed all the talents and strengths required to run a successful business on my own and decided to join forces with Drew and Don to create the amazing company EEC is today.

co-owner and CFO/Financial guru

Don Hebbring

I grew up in Dells, Wisconsin and graduated from UW Stout University with a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality and Tourism Management back in 2000.  I moved out to Phoenix looking for a new adventure and to create my own beginnings. After two years of being in the Hotel/Restaurant business, in 2004,  the Landscape/Pool industry found me and I haven’t looked back since. I have lived in Phoenix for almost 16 years and have put all of my passion, hard-work and knowledge into this company with my business partners. I absolutely love creating and building something that people don’t think is possible, then finalizing a project – knowing it will be enjoyed by families for years to come. My family and I have set our roots in Phoenix and plan on pushing Evolution Exterior Concepts to new heights, while continuing to give our clients their dream “stay‐at-home” vacations.
