Is California Pools & Landscape A Good Fit For Me? An Honest Review.

So you’ve decided you’re ready to build a pool in your backyard, now it’s time to dive into how you’re going to get that done. We understand that the process can seem overwhelming and that there are a lot of options in the marketplace to choose from.

When a majority of pool companies look the same on the surface, how do you determine that a company is the best fit for you?

At California Pools & Landscape, we’ve been helping customers on this journey for more than 33 years in Arizona. We’ve built more than 30,000 custom pools of all shapes and sizes to meet the desires of every customer. We focus on communication and details to make sure that our CPL clients are aware of each step throughout the construction process.

Throughout our years we’ve also come to realize that we’re not the best fit for every project, and we want to help pool customers find the right fit for them, even if that’s not us.

We are committed to being the most trusted voice in the pool and backyard industry, providing the answers that are hard to find from other pool builders. Whether that makes us your pool builder of choice or not, we will be transparent in our approach with each and every customer.

In this article, we’re going to go through the things that we specialize in and help you determine if we are the best fit for you.

What Can California Pools & Landscape Can Do For You?

At California Pools & Landscape, we specialize in every facet of outdoor living. We pride ourselves on being a one-stop-shop for your ultimate backyard design, whether it’s big or small. Every outdoor living space that we build is custom designed, curtailed to match the unique desires of each customer.

Having your project designed by one designer with one foreman and one warranty all under the same company is the most efficient and cost effective way to build your backyard. Building with one contractor avoids installation, scheduling, permitting, and drainage conflicts.

At California Pools & Landscape, we do it all for you! We can not only assist you with your pool project but also with any landscape, hardscape or structure needs. All of these are coordinated by our dynamite in-house scheduling team.

Currently, we offer:

  • New Shotcrete Pool & Spa Construction: We build our pools and spas using shotcrete, designed to last for the life of your pool in the extreme Arizona temperatures. Our shotcrete is manufactured to 4,000 psi while the industry standard is as low as 3,000 psi. This ensures that the shell of your pool will withstand any stress caused by its environment.
  • Landscape: Our CPL Landscape team helps bring life into your outdoor environment with the installation of trees, plants, cacti, rocks and artificial turf. Our outdoor specialists are licensed and certified to transform your backyard into a lush oasis.
  • Hardscape: Our CPL Hardscape team will build any outdoor living structures that are in your plans like:
    • Shade Structures
    • Outdoor Kitchens & BBQs
    • Fireplaces & Firepits
  • Our Hardscape team is licensed and certified to perform this quality work and add your dream destinations to your outdoor living space.
  • Commercial New Pools & Remodels
  • Remodeling of existing California Pools

By choosing us as your backyard contractor you won’t have to coordinate between multiple companies to complete your outdoor oasis. We are licensed, insured and bonded to complete everything in your backyard; from your pool, to an outdoor structure, to complete landscaping around your home.

If you are looking to piece out your project and work with multiple contractors, this will require more attention from you as a homeowner, cause longer time frames, and ultimately additional costs to the project.

What Warranty & Service Does California Pools & Landscape Provide?

After your backyard project is completed, having a quality warranty in place will help put your mind at ease. Knowing that your substantial investment into your outdoor living is covered if anything goes wrong can help you enjoy your backyard worry free.

At California Pools & Landscape, we stand behind our products and take great pride in the warranties that we offer. We’ve taken a time tested approach at selecting the best performing materials and products to withstand the extreme Arizona heat.

We offer a lifetime warranty for:

  • Shotcrete pool shell
  • Underground plumbing & utilities ran for the project
    • Gas
    • Electric
  • Interior Surface: Our Seaglass Pebble interior surfaces offer an unmatched sparkle in your pool and a lifetime warranty.
  • Pavers
    • Travertine
    • Artistic Pavers
    • Belgard
    • Porcelain
  • Structural Masonry
    • CMU Block & Footings
  • In-Floor Cleaning Pop-Up Heads
    • Lifetime Material & Labor

We offer a 3-year warranty for every part of your pool or spa construction and equipment.

Our in house Warranty Department is in place to ensure that if a problem arises in your backyard you have one number to call in order to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. There are no 1-800 numbers or different companies to contact for service when you become a member of the California Pools family.

What Design Materials Are Available At California Pools & Landscape?

In order to design and build a custom pool & backyard, you need to have a wide variety of design materials available.

At California Pools & Landscape, we take great pride in the variety and amount of options that we have available for our customers. In each of our four design centers you can find hundreds of pool tile options, a variety of decking materials, interior surface options, stacked stone selections and numerous water features to choose from.

While the 2020-’21 supply chain issues plagued the construction industry as a whole, we adapted our processes to ensure that our customers have numerous design materials available to complete their project in a timely manner. If for some reason your waterline tile or travertine is out of stock when it is time for an install, our design experts will find a suitable replacement to match your original selection.

When California Pools & Landscape Is Likely Not A Good Fit For You

While we’ve been in business for over 33 years, we realize that ultimately we might not be the best fit for every prospective pool buyer. There are things that we specialize in at California Pools & Landscape and things that we don’t.

You might find other pool companies or contractors to provide you with a finished product that we won’t do. Ultimately we would love your business, but if you are looking for the things below, you would be better served by another pool company.

If You’re Looking For A Vinyl or Fiberglass Pool

If you are looking for a vinyl or fiberglass pool in your backyard, CPL is not the right fit for you. We only build our pools and spas using shotcrete, as our 33 years of experience in Arizona have shown that it is the best product to use for a quality and long lasting pool.

If You’re Looking For A Pool Package Design

If you are looking for a premade pool design or pool package, CPL will not be the best fit for you. While we aim to design a custom pool & backyard for every customer to fit their needs, that is never a template or cookie cutter design.

Oftentimes companies that provide a pool package can do this at a cheaper cost, which could be a benefit to you. If you are interested in this type of design, be aware that your design materials and options will be limited greatly.

If You’re Looking For The Lowest Cost Quote & Build

We understand that building a pool is a large expense and ultimately a lot of times the decision boils down to the price. While we aim to always be competitive in the marketplace with all of our quotes, we realize that we will not be the cheapest contractor that you find. If you are building a pool in a short term home and aren’t concerned with the long term life of your pool, we might not be the best fit for you.

We aim to build the highest quality pool with the best products and warranties that are available in the industry. If you are building a pool in your forever home, we’d advise you to strongly consider paying a bit more up front for a long lasting outdoor oasis.

If You Need A Remodel Of A Pool We Didn’t Build

Are you looking to remodel your pool? If your pool is an original CPL pool, we’d be happy to provide a quote for your remodel project. If your pool was built by someone else, unfortunately we cannot offer to remodel it at this time.

Due to the high demand of pool and backyard construction, we simply cannot dedicate the resources to perform every pool remodel that is being requested at this time.

Is California Pools & Landscape The Right Fit For You?

We realize that we just threw a lot of information at you, but there are a multitude of factors to consider when making such a large purchase for your home. Whether we end up being the contractor of choice for your pool or not, we hope to provide transparency to the process to help you make the best decision for you and your family.

If you’re looking for a custom shotcrete pool made with the highest quality materials that will stand the test of time and don’t mind paying a bit more for that, then we might be a good fit!

California Pools & Landscape will provide you with:

  • A wide variety of Design Material options
  • Award winning custom designs
  • The highest quality construction materials and products
  • Exceptional Warranties & Service

If you’re ready to request a quote from CPL or meet with one of our talented designers, click here to get one step closer to swim time!

If you’re looking for a non-shotcrete pool, a pool from a package design or the lowest cost pool, we are not the right pool company for you.

If you’d like to take a closer look at the top pool builders in the state of Arizona, we have a list of all of the top companies. All of the contractors on this list provide a variety of services and specialties that might pertain to your search.
