For Fort Worth Custom Pools, backyard living spaces and outdoor living have become a large part of its renovation business. For instance, this type of work in the past, which includes designing and building arbours, gazebos, outdoor kitchens, as well as selling patio furniture and other related backyard accessories, represented a mere five per cent of the company’s business. Today, however, it represents nearly 40 per cent.
Renovating backyard living spaces has also grown exponentially for All Seasons Pools.
“From structures and furniture to installing anchors for umbrellas, these are the types of accessories that can provide higher profits on renovation projects,” says Lenz. “Our goal is to remain in the backyard and do everything we can for the client. We strive to offer one-stop shopping for everything in the backyard.
“In the past we would tell customers to call a landscaper to get their paver, concrete or other landscaping and hardscaping work done. Now we do everything ourselves.”
