Many families in Phoenix beat the heat by installing a backyard swimming pool. With design considerations ranging from pool decking and the shape of your pool, to your pool area features and entertainment layout, you can see a wide range of pools we’ve built in this gallery.

Custom Designed Swimming Pools and Backyard Landscapes

At Straight Line our expertise lies in designing the perfect landscape for you and your family.

How will you be using your pool area? Whether it’s training for a triathlon or pool volleyball with the kids, our designer will work closely with you through the process, resulting in the backyard swimming pool and spa of your dreams.

The Centerpiece of Your Backyard Landscape

As a focal point of your backyard landscape, your swimming pool is an important aspect of the overall design. It should work with other landscape features, facilitate the entertainment flow and complement the entire yard.

How will your pool area interact with the outdoor kitchen? We can design them close together for poolside grilling, or make a separate space for outdoor picnics. How about a pergola for shady patio lounging, or an outdoor fire pit to warm up after a cool swim?

We’ll create a plan for your pool space that’s visually pleasing, meets your needs and complements the big picture.

Pool Decking and Hardscapes

Possibly the most important aspect of your swimming pool area is the decking. We build pool decking with several materials, each with their own charms.

Interlocking pavers are a great option, while natural materials are cooler than pavers and never trend in and out. Below are a few decking options we offer at Straight Line.


Belgard pavers are often used in Phoenix with their beautiful finish and color options, which complement the natural colors of the Arizona landscape. Great for poolside patios and readily available materials make it easy to match your driveway and backyard.


Phoenix pavers can be more economical. In addition to their “Standard” paver, this trusted local company offers a large format “Aztec Stone.” With multiple color options, sizes and 2-piece up to 5-piece patterns, you can’t go wrong with these beautiful pavers.


These natural materials are porous with holes, nooks & crannies, and natural variations in color and texture. Travertine has more pits and veining imperfections, while limestone has a smoother finish, offering a more refined appearance reminiscent of tile.

Pool Area Features and Design Options

What other features do you want incorporated into your pool area? We can build underwater seating, integrate fountains, waterfalls, fire bowls, diving boards and water slides, or even a swim-up bar. Custom lighting schemes bring your pool to life at night while highlighting design features.

Relaxing Outdoor Hot Tubs and Therapeutic Spas

We can integrate the spa of your choice into the design, built into a decorative wall or partially sunk into the ground. For more of a spa-entertainment space we can add seating and decking along with an innovative lighting concept to bring it all together.
