new pool brings many benefits to your home. Not only does an inground pool add to the beauty and utility of your property, it increases your home value. After the free consultation, our pool specialists create a 3D drawing of your backyard to incorporate your landscaping into our layout. 

Once you approve the final plans, our contractors get to work excavating, framing, installing and plastering your new pool. After the coping and decking go down, you might find yourself the most popular house on the block for the ultimate in Hill Country outdoor living.

You Have Total Control

We want you to be happy with your pool, so you approve each step before we move on. Choose from irregular or geometric shapes with clean lines that complement your backyard. Grecian and Roman-style pools with graceful arcs and circles have also made a comeback. Consider bench seating inside the pool for comfort and relaxation.

Besides laying the patio or decking for your new pool, we also excel in retrofitting your current inground pool with an exquisite surround. 

Patios and Decking

If your Hill Country outdoor living space needs a makeover, call IES Pools today. Our patio and decking selections modernize your backyard and blend in with the aesthetic of your home. For pools in direct sunlight, we suggest a light color with a foundation that reflects the heat. Our textured materials help prevent slips and falls. 

Choose from the following pool patios and decking:

  • Brick: durable, recommend for shaded areas due to dark color
  • Concrete: strong, durable, cost-effective
  • Pavers: a wide selection of shapes, sizes, and colors
  • Travertine: beautiful surface and stays cooler (light color)
  • Natural Stone: the ultimate in natural aesthetics for your Hill Country outdoor living space
  • Wood: beautiful and durable, with appropriate maintenance


A pergola consists of a wide-open structure on support beams. It adds shade and ambiance without blocking out the perfectly blue summer sky above your Hill Country outdoor living space. A well-designed pergola also adds structure to your backyard and can act as a focal point for entertaining.

Dress up your backyard with layouts and materials that enhance your home’s exterior. If you need more shade or privacy, we can add a roof or walls to your customized design.
