My family and I could not be more pleased with our brand new Backyard Living pool. From the very start, Backyard Living’s owner Pepper Tregre demonstrated an eye for design, functionality and excellent use-of-space that exceeded our expectations. How our pool interacted with our new home was important to us. Pepper’s very professional 3-D Pre-Construction images provided a clear idea of what the final product would look like. I’m pleased to say that he nailed it…Perfectly. As inexperienced, first-time pool owners, it was comforting to know, during every phase of the project, that we were working with a passionate, experienced, hands-on, honest small business owner who took pride in building a beautiful pool that his customers would love. And we absolutely do love it. Thank you for a job well done Backyard Living.

I am pleased to submit the following Letter of Recommendation for Backyard Living. After meeting with multiple pool builders and considering their proposals, our family chose Backyard Living because we liked their design concept and features the best. As with any construction project, there were surely numerous challenges along the way. That said, Pepper Tregre and his team always were true to their word and made good on their promises. The end result is that we have a stunning swimming pool and hot tub that our family is enjoying very much. We appreciate that Backyard Living helped transform our backyard into our own little paradise!

Pepper, Wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying our backyard. We have been using the spa and fireplace quite often since the cool weather has come, and it has been very relaxing and enjoyable for the whole family and friends. I think the entire project is beautiful !!! . Carl was a great person to work with. He was kind and easy to talk to. Being a business owner ourselves, we always felt that the best form of advertisement is what people say about you. If someone would ask me about your business, I would say that you were always willing to please the customer. You often told us that it was” our project” and wanted to us to be pleased. Well we are!! I think it belongs in a magazine, especially once it has furniture and landscaping.

Thanks Pepper!!! Everything looks great, and sure appreciate all you’ve done….I heard a lot of horror stories about putting in a pool, thrilled that our experience was so different…”It’s truly been a great experience!

Cindy and I wanted to thank you again for the recently completed pool and patio project. It turned out precisely as we had hoped and having it completed in less than 5 weeks just added to the pleasure of the experience. Anyone can build a pool but it takes experience and talent to create the sort of ‘backyard experience’ we now have at our home.
