"Outdoor Living - Beyond the 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." We can take care of any and all aspects of your backyard dream, including:




Arbors, Pergolas, Cabanas

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.)


On the other hand, maybe you’d like an outdoor living area that you can use any time, regardless of the weather. If so, a cabaña may be right for you. Click on any of these photos to enlarge.

Custom Driveways

When the entryway to your home is artfully designed and properly installed, it can improve your attitude the minute you come home. Wouldn't that be a nice treat to enjoy for the rest of your life?



Decks & Patios

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.


Take a look at these photos for a sample of our ideas, capabilities and craftsmanship. Have something in mind? Let's talk about it.

Fireplaces & Firepits

An outdoor fireplace or firepit can be a great addition to any outdoor living space. It can be a focal point in which to formalize your outdoor living room. And everyone knows that gathering around the campfire is a great way to entertain and interact with friends and family.


There are limitless possibilities for firepit and fireplace designs and materials, so take a look at some of these examples for some ideas. (click photo to enlarge.) Whatever you can envision, we can build. (Click on any photo to enlarge.)

We use Grand Effects to offer the best fire and water features.



Gardens & Patios

With "Gardens and Patios," the goal is to take an average or unusable area and turn it into something usable and spectacular. We’re quite good, in fact, at visualizing and creating new living spaces in places where you may have never thought possible.



Outdoor Kitchens

Nothing completes your outdoor room like the ability to cook without running in and out of the house all day and night. We suggest you devote an area of your new outdoor living space to culinary endeavors.


Maybe you like to barbeque, grill, smoke, bake, or deep fry? Maybe you like to have the flexibility to utilize all these techniques? We can help you design your perfect outdoor chef’s station. Here are just some of the things we can incorporate into your outdoor living plans: (Click on any photo to enlarge.)

Outdoor Lighting

A well-executed plan for outdoor lighting can have a dramatic impact on the look and beauty of your home, and all the spaces around it. It can give you new usable space that would normally be lost to the nighttime darkness. It can make an average area look like a work of art. And done properly, it can bring a sense of warmth and intimacy to any space.
