Each outdoor living space should be UNIQUE to the taste of the homeowner and the style of the home. This is why the skill and expertise of a professional landscape designer pay substantial dividends. In the case of this traditional Chandler home, the setting is more formal. Yet, the homeowners still wanted a relaxing and comfortable feel to the space. The result is nothing short of amazing in this breathtaking backyard.
The simple, clean lines of the swimming pool, spa, turf, and custom gas fire pit are pleasing to the eye. And the light earth tones of the travertine pavers perfectly complement the colors and tones used for the house, trim, and roof tiles. But there is also a sense of fun and whimsy that can be added when the deck jets send perfect arches of water into the pool.
This outdoor oasis is a testament to the versatility and skill of the UNIQUE design and construction teams. As a licensed general contractor, as well as holding licenses for pool and landscape construction, we are the only company in the valley that is truly uniquely qualified to build every aspect and feature that you can imagine including on your property.

When you purchase a pool from any licensed pool builder, there are specific items included in every pool and every contract. Things like the excavation, rebar, shotcrete, and standard plumbing are all a part of every pool. But when working with the UNIQUE team, you will quickly discover that this list of necessities is just the beginning of your custom pool, spa, and outdoor living space. In the case of this 225k project, some of the pool and spa added features include:
- Swimming Pool Heater
- Baja Step
- Bullnose Travertine Coping
- Upgraded Waterline Tile
- Spa Spillway
- Deck Jets
- Upgraded Lighting
- Screen Logic System For Wireless Integration
This complete landscape and swimming pool package includes nearly 4,000 square feet of additional paved living space in the backyard. A combination of travertine and Marbella pavers were used to create this extensive area for entertaining, relaxing, and enjoying the pool and spa. One of the feature entertaining spaces includes a custom square gas fire pit. The cap on the fire pit is constructed of the same bullnose coping used on the pool decking.
To add to the traditional appearance of this space, nearly 3,600 square feet of natural grass was installed, complete with fully automatic irrigation. Additional irrigation zones were added to accommodate the plants, trees, and pots throughout the backyard. When completed, this property became home to over 750 new plants, all of which were installed by the UNIQUE team and carry their standard warranty.
Over 35 professional-grade lighting fixtures add to the beauty and functionality of this spectacular space. The fixtures are a blend of uplights, pathlights, downlights, and underwater units that carry a 10-year warranty. And the entire system is controlled by a single transformer that can be operated from an I-Phone for more convenience. Added comfort when enjoying this space is also provided by the professional mister system that cools the seating area with a microscopic mist that never puddles or creates damp surfaces.
Finally, a 120 square foot pond and fountain provide the ambiance and serenity for a small patio tucked away from the grandeur of the larger outdoor living spaces. This quiet nook is the perfect place to relax and reflect while enjoying the colorful flowers and calming sound of the fountain.
