The California Pool and Landscape 35 Year Legacy

California Pools & Landscape has a 35 year legacy of building award-winning backyards and providing sterling service to our clients throughout the valley! Family-owned and operated, we were founded on the belief that pool building should be a great experience. Our devotion to helping people create the outdoor space of their dreams has driven our growth from a small pool company to Arizona’s premier outdoor living builder. In our years of business we’ve built over 35,000 pools! This unwavering commitment to client satisfaction has made us the only pool company to be recognized with the BBB’s coveted Ethics Award. Our track record building world-class backyards has earned us our unmatched reputation!

How We Began

California Pools was founded on the ideal of making pool building a better experience for people. We were motivated by a sincere desire to create great relationships and to make a difference in the lives of the people we build pools for. We are a family-run business in the truest sense: the original California Pools began as a little computer hutch in a kitchen, run by husband and wife team Mike and Joan Smith. Even though our business has expanded to multiple locations, it is still a family business at heart.

As we grew over the years, we heard our clients say that they wanted us to be involved in their entire backyards and build more than just pools. We listened and we expanded! We are licensed by the ROC to build every aspect of your backyard: gazebos, outdoor kitchens, sunken bars, ramadas, bathhouses, and more. This growth has turned us into the most trusted outdoor living company in the valley, and we have our customers to thank.

Our Beliefs

Although we have grown, the values of our business remain consistent. At the heart of our company’s ethos is a simple desire to be of service. Commitment to this vision informs each interaction with our clients here at California Pools & Landscape. If you buy a pool or not, we know your interaction with us will a positive one.

We know we are building more than just backyards for our customers. We are creating spaces where they can grow their families and make memories for years to come.

“The vision we set out with, and the heart that we put into this business isn’t a bit different today than it was when we started—there’s just a bit more of it.”

–Mike Smith, Founder

We have you, our clients, to thank for our tremendous growth and continued success! Here’s to the next 35 years!
