Backyard Designs For Hot Tubs & Pools

We know that pools and hot tubs are more than just a vinyl shell filled with water; they're the main attraction of family pool parties, a place to cool off and chill out on a hot summer day, the perfect way to relax and unwind on a cool fall evening, the focal point of your outdoor living space. Give your pool or hot tub the attention it deserves with an expertly designed yard.

Outdoor living spaces designed for pools.

The most beautiful outdoor spaces are ones that feel effortless—because they are effortless. Designing a yard for a new pool or hot tub is both an art and a science, representing the perfect union of aesthetics and proportions. With considerations for shade, privacy, safety, and usability, a yard designed for a pool creates an oasis of summertime joy and bliss in an outdoor space you'll love to live in.

A Holistic Approach To Design & Build.

It starts with an idea. From there, we’ll work with you—every step of the way—to ensure you get the exceptional landscape design services Waterloo Region and Wellington County have come to rely on since 1967. It’s a collaborative process that generates trust and saves you time and money while giving you as much or as little input at each stage as you want. Once the job is finished, we rarely say goodbye. Instead, we love helping you maintain the design so it just keeps looking better, and grow it for the future so it’s always meeting your needs.
