How We Do It

Our Process

PLANNING & DESIGN

Ready to make your yard an oasis? We will come out to your house and walk your yard with you discussing your ideas. This process will involve initial plans, bidding, and final designs.

PERMIT & HOA

Now it’s time to submit our plans to the city and acquire permits to begin construction. We make sure all plans comply with state and local building requirements to ensure a smooth process. We will also help you get HOA approval.

LAYOUT

Once all of the designs are finalized and permits are approved, we will come out and lay out the pool. This layout will show the shape, size, and location of the pool in your yard for the excavation crew.

EXCAVATION

Our excavation crew will come in and start digging the pool. We will use a large excavator to dig the pool and bobcat to shuttle dirt out of the yard. You will most likely need to repair irrigation, but we will handle that at the end of the project.

PLUMBING & EQUIPMENT

The plumbing is designed to give your pool the best circulation for easy maintenance and crystal clear water. We install all of the plumbing lines and ensure that they are the correct size for water clarity.

STRUCTURAL STEEL

Now it’s time to add the steel reinforcement for the shell of the pool to give it strength per the engineering plans. This will include bars of steel placed horizontally and vertically specifically engineered for your pool.

ELECTRICAL & GAS

Our master electricians will install all of the electrical components of the pool equipment and run the lines to the main electrical box. If you have a gas heater or built-in grill, gas lines will be run from the main gas meter in the front of the house to the equipment.

GUNITE

Now that the structure is ready, we can shoot the gunite. Gunite is shot through a high-pressure hose to create the hard shell of the pool. Upon completion, you will need to lightly water the gunite to allow the concrete to cure slowly. We will also need to wait 5-7 days before moving to the next step.

TILE, COPING & WATER FEATURES

At this point, we are ready to install the tile along the waterline. Once that is complete, we install the coping around the pool edge and any water features such as waterfalls, sheer descents, deckjets, and laminars.

DECKING

The project is now ready for decking/patio. The two most popular options in Texas are concrete or pavers. Concrete can be coated, dyed, washed, or stamped to give it dimension. Pavers have become more desirable due to their look and longevity. The size of the decking will determine the number of days it will require to finish.

OUTDOOR LIVING

During this step, the project is ready for additional outdoor living structures and features to be constructed and installed. This includes outdoor kitchens, pergolas, arbors, retaining walls, and fire features.

FINAL CLEANUP

Your project is getting close to being completed. Our team will remove all construction materials and waste from the site and prepare the pool surface to be coated.

POOL SURFACE

At this point, we start applying the finish to the pool surface. The most popular finish is Pebbletech, which is shot out of a high-pressure hose. Once the surface has cured for 24 hours, we then come back and perform an acid wash.

FILL & START-UP

You’re probably ready to jump in the pool by now! Luckily we’re ready to fill the pool and start-up the equipment. Our start-up crew is there to get the water moving and balance the water chemistry. We will also review the equipment and care instructions at this time.

LANDSCAPING INSTALL

The pool is done, outdoor living is installed, and now we’re ready to install the plants and fix the irrigation. Our landscape teams add the final touches to your project with trees, shrubs, and flowers. Once completed, we will do a final cleanup and take photos.

“I interviewed three or four design/build firms and Clients First really stood out from the beginning. Their landscape designer was friendly and had a lot of great ideas and was also very responsive to all my questions. The installation went smooth and not once did I have to watch over their installation crews to make sure they were installing the design like we agreed. Very professional and honest.”

Michael Palpovich, Dallas, TX

“For years we had wanted to build a pool or an outdoor living space. We had also thought about doing both. Clients First could have sold us on doing a huge project but instead they were honest with their consultation and design. Due to drainage and other grading requirements a pool would have not served the space well. They designed a functional outdoor living space with a beautiful landscape that functions beautifully! The design team and staff are amazing at Clients First.”

Sherry Lawson, Flower Mound, TX

“I had extensive landscaping done at my home that included new irrigation, retaining walls, drainage, planting and a number of other related items. The attention to detail is amazing and the service I got from their landscape foreman was great. I had his phone number in case I had any questions during the installation. Their designer was always available when I needed her as well. The service is unmatched compared to my other landscaping experiences.”
