thoughtful Design is the difference

Careful planning and thoughtful design is a big deal at Outdoor Elements.  We don’t just sketch your ideas out on a piece of paper or use software that generates a dazzling, but useless plan.  

Whether you are building a pool, transforming your entire backyard, or adding landscaping, it must work well in the available space,  function flawlessly, and meet your needs.   

Therefore, a professional design plan precludes every project we take on.  Our team of experts carefully measures, then executes a plan that will become the blue print for your space.

Our process

Whether we are building a custom pool, adding a covered seating area to your high-rise patio, or designing a pergola and fire pit for your backyard, it is our mission to ensure that your project comes to life the way you imagined it.  We follow the same tried and true process for every job.



We get to know you and your property and listen to your goals, visions and objectives for the space. At this time, we discuss a preliminary, rough project estimate.  If we decide that we will make a great team, we collect a design fee (avg. $1000 – $1500) for a detailed set of architectural plans.  



Our experienced, degreed, landscape designer gets to work creating your vision in AutoCAD. A detailed set of architectural plans will be used as the blueprint for the project. These plans are the guide for our team of project managers and installers and include exact dimensions, elevation & section views as well as specific details regarding all materials and the landscape pallet.



Our team of landscapers, pool builders, outdoor living construction specialists and everyone in between swings into motion working to create your vision.  During this phase, your project manager keeps in constant contact. 



Our project managers double check the details to ensure that plans are consistent with the finished product. Final cleaning and equipment testing take place to prepare for the big reveal.



It’s time for the big reveal. Our open and effective communication and top-notch customer service throughout ensure a successful outcome.  It’s time to enjoy your outdoor living space and become the envy of the neighborhood. 


Building a pool that meets all your needs is easy with amazing features created by Outdoor Elements.  Enjoy soaking up the rays?  Incorporate a tanning ledge into your new pool design. How about an aesthetically-pleasing dive platform for the kids?  There is an array of options for everyone.

We take the fear out of choosing a custom pool builder

We know that homeowners have questions and a maybe a little bit of apprehension when trying to decide who will take on the important job of completing an outdoor project at their residence.  

In fact, according to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), homeowners’ largest fears center around uncertainty.  As homeowners ourselves, we understand where you are coming from and know how important it is to get it right. 

Outdoor Elements addresses the three biggest questions associated with any home improvement project or custom swimming pool project. 


AM i getting what I paid for?

Outdoor Elements uses only quality materials, high-end finishes and brand names that stand the test of time.  Our own expert crews work directly for us so we can cut out the middle-man.  Services are priced for a long-lasting, well-built, quality product.  We aren’t the least expensive pool builder in the Houston area because we refuse to compromise on quality in order to earn a distinction that holds little merit when it comes to a well-built pool.  However, we are so confident that our product and services are priced competitively with other high-end pool builders, we will meet or beat a qualified competitor’s equivalent bid.  Speak with us more about the details of this offer. 

Will they stay within my budget?

Prior to starting, we make sure we understand your vision, your wishes and budget restrictions so that we provide a project estimate for exactly what you expect.  Excellent communication about finishes, materials and details ensure there are no surprises.  However,  when building outdoor spaces, we have to contend with . . . the outdoors. Weather conditions are entirely out of our control as are natural occurrences in the ecology of the space.  An unexpected obstacle in the terrain could constitute a modification to the plan and the budget.  If the unforeseen happens, our line of defense is transparency and communication.  You’ll never be shocked by a change to the original plan. 

Will the finished product look the way I envisioned?

We start every project by looking at your environment, listening to your vision and discussing your expectations.  Then our landscape designer crafts a set of plans that become the blueprint from which the finished product is built.  Along the way, we collaborate with you about each decision and communicate openly.  We send you job photos as we work.  In other words, we value the design process, listen to your desires and communicate the entire time.  The job isn’t finished until you are completely satisfied.

We use the finest materials and most trusted brands
