“Outdoor Living” – It’s Much More Than Just a Pool

For many people, especially in this part of Texas, the backyard has become the focal point for entertaining. As a result, most of our projects go way beyond "just a swimming pool." Consider how much more fun your home will be with some of these options:

 


 

We can take care of any and all of the above for you. For more examples of our work, click any of the photos below.


Arbors & Pergolas

Would you like a little shade in your backyard area? An arbor or pergola can create a wonderful living area that stays cool and breezy, while still letting in plenty of light and fresh air. (And with the right landscaping touch, it can become a natural “green” arbor.)

Cabanas / Covered Patios

In addition to shade, a cabana or covered patio can also provide protection from rain and other inclement weather. (Especially important if you were thinking about a big screen television!) Now you can enjoy your backyard paradise year-round!

Decks, Patios & Hardscapes

A new deck or patio can add a wonderful space for family gatherings, or for gaining access to a beautiful view. If you already have a deck, but you're just not happy with it, we'll be happy to design an alternative. (Click on any photo to enlarge.)

Firepits

A firepit is very low-cost way to create a brand-new outdoor living space. After all, everyone knows that "gathering around the campfire" is a great way to entertain and interact with friends and family. Take a look at the photos below for some ideas for your perfect Firepit. (Be sure to also check out our huge sampling of fireplaces!)

Kitchens & Grills

Nothing completes your outdoor area like the ability to cook without running in and out of the house all the time. We suggest you devote an area of your new outdoor living space to culinary endeavors, based on the number of people you plan to entertain. (Click on any photo to enlarge.)

Landscaping

A Pool Without Landscaping Will Always Look Unfinished. Fortunately, we have a landscape design team that works with our pool design team to come up with the ideal combination of waterscape and landscape. By designing it all at once, we can build in special places for unique plants and other landscape features.
