Beyond the Pool Edge
For seven years running, Baytown, Texas-based Backyard Amenities has been ranked among the top 50 pool builders in the nation by Pool & Spa News—and with clear reason.
The family-owned and operated company has been designing and constructing custom gunite in-ground swimming pools in Houston since 1998. Son Brandon Stephens joined the company in 2012, and has been chief designer ever since. He is responsible for transitioning the company from the days of hand-drawn designs to computerized designs with video and photo presentations.
“Every swimming pool design we do is a work of art,” says Stephens. “Even better, it’s a part of your home and a source of joy for your family.”
From the simplest classic design to cutting-edge innovations, pools and spas by Backyard Amenities are impressive for their materials, craftsmanship, and fine-grain level of detail.
Whether adding a pool for recreational reasons or to serve as the center stage for entertaining, the team’s efforts are always aimed at helping clients reach the point where they are able to enjoy the finished product—or, as Stephens puts it, “to relax in warm waters, nestled among the lush plants and flowers.” In fact, most projects result in homeowners doing just that,
28 days from the start of construction.
The name “Backyard Amenities” makes good sense. Beyond custom pools and spas, they offer countless special features, including bar stools, beach entries, bubblers, fire bowls and pits, water bowls, weeping walls, and waterfalls—to name a few.
By running a personalized yet tight and efficient operation, the family behind Backyard Amenities has managed to win the prestigious AQUA 100 Award for five consecutive years. Their work has been featured on HGTV’s Cool Pools, and they became an AQUA 100 Hall of Fame inductee just six years after the company’s founding. “We have received eight Carecraft Design of Excellence Awards, two Better Business Bureau Gold Torch Awards, and the Lee College Small Business of the Year-Monument Award,” adds Stephens. A waterscape by Backyard Amenities—the leading pool builder in the region—promises “a long lasting and pleasurable return on your investment.”
