A pool design plan will guarantee that all of the elements that we consider together are accurately represented, for you and for our construction team, as it will also be the true blue print for building a quality and efficient pool project.

This package is for homeowners who have many dreams and ideas and need a little help getting started in the right direction. Perhaps you’re a family who has plans to work in phases. For example, you’d love to put in a pool for the kids when they’re a little older. You’d love to install a patio and fire pit, but a current bathroom renovation is keeping you focused on the inside of the house. For the outside, your real priority this year is buying a shed and you want to make sure you place it in the right location. We can help! Let’s sit down and plan a schematic plan for the future.
We will sit down with you at your home for a minimum of one hour
Prior to the meeting, we will prepare an Autocad base plan (homeowner to provide plot plan)
We will listen and discuss your ideas
We will use our design expertise to create a schematic layout for during our meeting
Before leaving, we will provide you with a PDF of the plan to keep for your planning purposes
Our 3D landscape design service allows us to really enhance the design and gives you the opportunity to see the placement of the proposed pool and other outdoor living elements. 3D design has been a client favorite to help visually understand the project investment before we even start installation. Our 3D designs are perfect for the client who needs to see something to visualize the possibilities.
Plan renderings are a beautiful way to illustrate your plan in color and in detail. This tool brings depth and life to a 2-dimensional plan using a combination of our Autocad, Adobe Photoshop, and Illustrator programs.
Please refer to our Landscape Design page (insert link) for more information on custom planting designs to complement and beautify your pool oasis.
Design Works offers Landscape Master Planning to create a vision and roadmap for a successful and beautiful landscape. We offer a limited amount of Planting Master Plan projects from December 1 – end of February; helpful for the homeowner planning for a spring and/or phased installation. Please refer to other packages for design services outside of this time frame.
Jim and/or Jennifer DiNovo will come to your home and meet with you for an initial consultation. During our first meeting, you have our attention! It's important for us to get an understanding of your needs, style, and personality, which later translates into a design that is custom to you. It's also important for you to know that we're listening, so we often engage in a dialogue that evokes substantial ideas right on site. We will discuss similar project examples, rough cost figures, the aspects of the design/build process, and provide proof that we are the right team to hire. After getting acquainted, we’ll discuss design-build packages available to you and decide if both parties would like to continue to the next step.
We will deliver an initial design-build contract for review and approval. We will collect a deposit based on the budget range of the project. We will perform a site assessment to understand grades, site opportunities and constraints, and to take measurements and photos. We will further discuss your needs, wants, options, materials, and budget refinement.
We will present you with a concept. Any needed revisions will be discussed and the final plans, renderings, and construction contract will be prepared for your approval.
We will work with you on final logistics, coordination with other contractors, order materials, and notify Digsafe.
The Concept will start to be installed and take shape. We will stay in constant communication on progress and any issue that arise. Payment schedules will be invoiced and collected by our Team.
We will put on the finishing touches, walk through the project with you and explain how things work, review applicable warranties, collect final payment, and explain our maintenance services to keep your project looking great.
After the project, you will be provided with a testimonial and customer satisfaction survey request. We want to make sure we’ve upheld the projects to your standards.
