Are you ready to add a pool or do a backyard makeover, but aren’t quite sure where your budget will take you? If you’re looking at luxury pools to add to your backyard, it can be tough to visualize what your budget will translate into for your outdoor living experience.

At California Pools & Landscape, we’ve been creating custom backyards of all sizes for over 35 years in Arizona. We’ve worked side by side with thousands of customers in this budget range to build the ultimate backyard of their dreams. This experience has given us the expertise to take care of every detail and make your pool building a breeze.

In this article we will examine the different backyard features that are typically added for pool projects that fall within the budget range of $200K & up. There are many important factors that will determine a pool’s cost and we are here to give you all the information you need to plan your perfect pool!

The pools in the video above show a variety of design styles that are available in this budget range. These ultimate backyards key in on functionality & creating the ultimate outdoor living environment.

The prices of these projects vary mostly due to size of the pool and the additional design features added. Your pool size, lot conditions, jurisdiction, material choices, decking materials, fire features, water features, and other landscape features will all be considered when creating a budget for your backyard oasis. The projects in this price range typically feature tricked out pools & spas, extensive landscaping, fire features plus outdoor kitchens or ramadas.

Building Your Ultimate Backyard with Luxury Pools

So what is an ultimate backyard? The short answer is anything you can imagine under the sun! Our design team works to create multiple “destination areas” throughout your yard. From full-service custom kitchens, to sheltered seating areas and swim-up bars – it’s as if you’ve added several more rooms to your home.

An ultimate backyard means that you have extended your living space to the outdoors and optimized your home for both rest and play! Host friends for drinks around the fire, to watch the game from your outdoor living room, or fire up the barbeque for dinner under the stars!

If your backyard budget is in the $200K & up price range, you will be able to include an inground pool & spa, plus some additional destination areas into your backyard living environment. Our designers and clients can get truly creative with material selection and create a one-of-a-kind piece of art when building backyards in this price range. Creating your ultimate backyard and building luxury pools make a lot of sense in Arizona as the weather throughout the year makes outdoor living ideal.

The first ultimate backyard featured in our video has a gorgeous view of Camelback Mountain. Our design team went to work with the customer to create a one of a kind outdoor living space. The design materials were chosen specifically by the customer to appear like they were naturally rusted around the pool.

This ultimate backyard features a large inground pool, elevated overflow spa, a grand outdoor dining area and a stunning fireplace. The special design touches add character to the yard and set this design apart from the rest!

The landscaping & lighting add the final ultimate touches, allowing the natural elements of the desert environment to blend into the backyard.

The Scottsdale backyard in the picture above was designed to complement the architecture of the home, with design inspirations from Frank Lloyd Wright. The clients worked with our design team to ensure that they had an ultimate backyard that looked like it’d always been a part of the home.

This outdoor environment features several destination areas and special design features that make it a one of a kind backyard. The contemporary design is highlighted by the travertine decking, glass tiled overflow spa and raised fire pit.
