Enhancing Lifestyles with One-Of-A-Kind Pools


n 1979, Guy Wood started Westside Pool Service, cleaning and repairing residential pools on the Westside of Fort Worth, Texas. He built his first pool in 1982 and has maintained steady growth since, while earning a strong reputation of high quality and unparalleled customer service. 

Today, his company, Westside Watershapes, is an award-winning small boutique builder, working with around 10-15 new pool construction clients a year. They maintain key relationships with industry-leading suppliers and distributors to ensure that their products are reinforced with the best quality, latest technology, and unrivalled warranties and support. The company places great value on their ongoing relationship with industry-leading builders, designers, architects, and landscapers.

Westside Watershapes enjoys the challenge of diverse and complex pool projects where they can apply creativity and the team’s vast experience to deliver the high-end results for which they are known. An example featured here is a pool that’s suspended 10 feet in the air, built above the three-car parking area with a 4’ engineered retaining wall to hold back the lush hillside. This outdoor oasis is a tailor-made solution, which features a stunning pool and elliptical spa with 16 jets, a stack stone outdoor kitchen, a layered waterfall fountain, and beautifully crafted hardscape to elevate the view. The completed project is truly a sight to behold when the entertainment area comes alive.

The Westside Watershapes team continuously seeks advanced education to enhance their ability to build high-end, cutting edge designs coupled with tomorrow’s technology. In addition, Wood is a verified Watershape Builder with Watershape University and an NSPF Certified Pool/Spa Operator with over 250 hours of industry specific training, as well as a CBP (Certified Building Professional) with APSP.

“I appreciated that each project and client is uniquely different, and I am committed to working closely with each client to deliver the vision,” comments Wood. To achieve this, he works in concert with his team and the craftsmen through every phase of the build to ensure his detailed-obsessed expectations are met.

“We have received a record number of enquiries over the last 12 months. This is an excellent sign that families in Fort Worth are placing an increased focus on enhancing their lifestyle with a one-of-a-kind pool built by Westside Watershapes,”
says Wood.
