Step one

Step 1: Design & Pricing

Getting Started: Click the “request a quote” button at the top of the page. After we have your information will we reach out to you by phone and schedule a free consultation with one of our design consultants. At this point, we ask what it is you are wanting in your backyard project; pool/spa/outdoor living, as well as a series of other questions so that our designers are aware of your expectations. Some things that we would like to have before our designers come to your property are a Dig Tess schedule, a Legible Copy of the Property Survey, Form Board Survey, or Final Set of House Plans, and any Engineering that you may have.

Design Consultation: We want to get to know you better while we design your pool! This process involves an in-person consultation with your personal Complete Backyard Design Consultant. Make sure the entire family is there because we like all involved to have the opportunity to tell us about their wishes and visions for your custom backyard project. We’ll discuss your budget, take measurements, and lots of pictures of the site for your future project.

In-Office Second Appointment: At this appointment, your designer brings your ideas to life. With 3D Project Design Software, you can virtually walk through your new outdoor space, feeling like you are fully immersed in the project.

You will also be asked to choose your materials. Our designers help by giving you the opportunity to touch, feel, and match the materials. Our showroom is filled with the newest styles of pavers, travertine, and glass tile. We also carry regular tile, ledgestone, and a large selection of finishes for the inside of your pool. Your designer will help to guide you every step of the way.

Step Two

Step 2: Drafting & Permitting

Drafting/Permit Process: The 3D Schematic Design you see during the design phase gives the general idea for a project. The project manager focuses and refines it and construction documents fill in all the details. The final set of drawings will specify every element of the project, from the structure to the color choices. Construction Documents serve two purposes: to apply for (and receive) building permits from the city or other local authority and to construct the project. Here is every step you will encounter during the drafting and permit process:

  • Dig tess
  • Drafting
  • Engineering (if applicable)
  • Completed construction plans
  • Utilities
  • Permitting by the city
  • Pre-construction meeting (required)
  • Tentative dig date

Step Three

Step 3: Construction

Construction Phase: We understand there are many processes to constructing your Complete Backyard that may be difficult to follow. In order to ensure your project is exactly what you envisioned, we take a careful approach to each step along the way. Designing and building a Complete Backyard can’t be done overnight. Adding any project to your backyard will require The Complete Backyard contractors to use heavy equipment. From machinery, pipes, concrete filling, tile, and interior finishes, there is a lot of equipment that will be necessary to use during this project.

Our Trusted Partners

The Complete Backyard has built two pools for us over the last 15 years. Once again, they have outdone themselves. We wanted a simple but modern lap pool with clean lines and features; that is exactly what they delivered. Their customer service, communication, scheduling, and ability to accommodate a few last minute changes made our project flow smoothly from beginning to end. Each member of The Complete Backyard team brought something unique to the project. Thank you, Ross, Rene, and Phillip. We love our pool."

These guys are great!!! Would use them again without question. We researched several companies and The Complete Backyard came out on top across the board on all of our projects. Constantly have people just stop and ask who built our pool and outdoor living area because they are so impressed with what they see."

We are so happy we chose the team at The Complete Backyard to build our beautiful pool and patio! From the moment we met with them to the day the pool was done, they were in constant communication with us on our timeline and what to expect each day. Our pool was completed within the projected time, even after we made some add-ons and changes during the process. We absolutely love the end result of our pool and patio with an outdoor kitchen! We highly recommend going with TCB for a stress-free pool-build experience! And make sure to ask for RJ and Dave!itle Goes Here

The Complete Backyard was an amazing company to work with during our pool design, installation and start-up. They worked with us on all aspects of the design to create a product that we absolutely love. The construction process went quick and was on-time with a fantastic supervisor. He was very communicative and answered all of our questions which allowed us to understand what we were seeing. At the end of the process they also did an excellent job making sure we knew how to use the new pool. They have also been very responsive post-construction with any of our questions. Highly recommend choosing TCB for your next backyard project.

I can't say enough about the quality of service and work that we received from the entire team at TCB. From the first consultation to post completion, the team has been nothing short of professional and easy to work with . The initial design was absolutely perfect; they knew exactly what we wanted from our first discussion and the proposed plans were spot on (we changed absolutely nothing!). Every single contractor that came to the job was professional, cleaned up after themselves and did the job right. Any questions we had were addressed immediately and they never kept us in the dark about the project the entire time. I will recommend this company over and over to anyone needing an amazing project done.

Absolutely wonderful staff, service, and prices! Our pool pump went out during the winter storm and within 3 hours of contacting them, they came out to diagnose it and repaired it the same day. The entire staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
