Your pool doesn’t exist on its own; it’s part of a larger backyard experience, and if you want the “wow” factor that can only come from a well-integrated whole, you’ll want to give some attention to the landscaping and hardscaping of your backyard so that your newly designed custom pool integrates seamlessly with its surroundings.

Once your pool is complete, we can either leave your yard sod-ready for you to design your own poolside paradise, or you can let us work with you to customize the landscaping around the pool we’ve designed for you. Obviously, for a truly integrated space, it makes sense to have the same people who designed your pool design the setting in which it exists; but if you prefer to handle the landscaping yourself, we’ll prepare the canvas so it’s ready for you to 'paint' in rock and foliage, lighting and shade, walkways and fences, structures and spaces.

Just as with custom pool design, when you marry your vision with our expertise, the possibilities for your landscaping are limitless. The special features you choose will give your space precisely the unique look, feel, and utility you want. Let your imagination run wild with options. Here are a few of the elements you may want to include:

  • Fire Features, like a fireplace or fire pit, will give you the ambience of that warm glow once the sun goes down, along with the utility of a longer season for your outdoor space as the cooler weather approaches. Your fire features can be built for gas or natural wood fires.
  • Outdoor Kitchens are quickly becoming a popular way to extend your enjoyment of the outdoors, and they can range in complexity from a simple grill pit to a full-blown kitchen, all built to integrate with the style of your home and your pool.
  • Foliage, in the form of well-chosen trees, plants, flowers, and grasses, will provide color, texture, vitality, and privacy for your backyard pool paradise.
  • Structures, like arbors, cabanas, and pool houses, not only add to the aesthetics of your space; they provide shade from the sun and even shelter from the elements.
  • Patios and Decks can help form the transitional space between your pool and the rest of the yard, or they can be set apart as separate spaces from the pool entirely. They provide gathering places for dining or just relaxing in the sun.
  • Rock Formations can add to the aesthetics while also delineating distinct areas and providing privacy. Such formations may be made of natural or artificial rock, and can range from the simplicity of a single boulder to the complexity of a grotto or waterfall.
  • Walkways, Retaining Walls, and Fencing fulfill practical needs while also adding to the beauty and the privacy of your backyard paradise, and they can be made from a variety of natural and manmade materials, all depending on the look and feel you want.
  • Lighting is an essential for extending the functionality of your outdoor space into the nighttime hours, but well designed, it will also accentuate key parts of your landscape. With state-of-the-art technology and LED lights, your lighting system can practically take care of itself while minimizing the electrical burden.
