Our Pool Designs: Exceeding Expectations

When you entrust your pool project to Betz, you get more than quality construction, you get an award-winning team of designers and landscape architects, intent on bringing out the best in your property. Betz is one of the few pool builders in Canada with a full in-house design department.

Every job site presents unique challenges and opportunities. It could be a sloping yard with restrictions on retaining walls, or a ravine lot with established setbacks. Some sites adjoin conservation areas or designated green spaces, while others have tree protection zones, all of which require special planning. In some cases we are asked to retain existing trees, gardens or hedges and occasionally find that a liability can be turned into asset, such as taking an existing building and re-purposing it into something useful, like a shade structure. Often such finds become an architectural highlight.

With over 75 years experience and thousands of pool projects to our credit, we have the know-how to create a breathtaking outdoor environment for your home. Our design work has been recognized repeatedly with some of the most prestigious international awards in the pool industry.
