Custom Pool

A shimmering blue pool will be the focal point of your backyard escape. No matter the size, elevation, or layout of your backyard, our pool designers can create a gorgeous custom pool that sets tongues wagging. With curvaceous borders and optional special features like waterfalls, deck jets, or vanishing edges, your pool will look marvelous no matter your design preference. Enhance your pool experience with a warm bubbling spillover spa. Finish it off with fun features like a slide or diving board.

Stone Work

Intricate stonework around your pool, garden, and seating areas adds an elegant touch to your outdoor retreat that ties the entire space together. Upgrade the space with a spectacular stone fireplace or outdoor cooking area built into a timeless stone surround.

Pool House

Once you’ve finishing dipping in the pool, unwind in an open-air pool house with plush outdoor seating, elegant lighting, and warming fire elements. Find a relaxing place to escape from the sunlight and delve into a juicy summer novel.

Fire Features

Keep the relaxation going well into the night with an outdoor fireplace or fire pit. You can also upgrade your pool surroundings with entrancing fire pots and fire bowls that provide a compelling natural contrast to water.


The best backyard retreats should feel like a natural extension of the house. Custom decking can help make this transition. Whether made of PVC or a natural wood product like cedar, decks can be home to a cooking area, lounge zone, elevated spa, and more.


The final element of a stunning backyard retreat is fencing. Add the perfect finishing touch, create a safety barrier, and maintain your privacy. Iron or steel fencing is elegant and refined, while cedar and wood grain PVC create a rustic atmosphere of seclusion.
