Our process

We make it easy to understand the pool building process so you know when and what to expect before we break ground.

Design and 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.

Drafting and 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


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.
