Pool Design and Outdoor Living

We don’t just build pools, we design and create complete outdoor living spaces.

Building a pool in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, or Southern New Hampshire?

Contact us first.

Why not just call a local pool company for your gunite, fiberglass, or vinyl freeform, inground swimming pool?

You’ll never say “I wish I’d thought of that before.”

At Dex by Terra, our experienced landscape designers will ensure that your pool is perfectly situated within your yard. Poor placement of your pool can cause severe restrictions to your overall outdoor living space design.

We’re landscape architects, and we are trained to consider traffic flow and sight lines. Are you also planning to build an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, or sunbathing deck? Our designers will make sure your pool design seamlessly incorporates these additional aspects.

We handle the dirty work.

Once your pool and landscape design is complete, we will coordinate with one of our partnered pool builders and oversee the pool construction process. All hardscaping and landscaping will be installed by our own masons and landscape architects.

You’ll be calling us anyway.

Pool companies will simply install your pool, and afterward, you’ll need to reach out to a landscape design company for a pool deck and outdoor living space. Reach out to us first, and avoid the headaches. We’ll get it right the first time.

Designs that compliment your unique lifestyle.

Your dream pool is just the beginning. Our landscape architects will go the extra mile to create a meticulously planned outdoor living space that can include fire features, an outdoor kitchen, water features, lounge areas, landscaping beds, and more.

Quality materials. Built to last.

Dex by Terra uses the finest building materials from respected sources like Techo-BlocUnilock, Cambridge Pavers, and more. We’ll help you choose from a broad selection of internationally sourced natural stone, pavers, exposed aggregate, or stamped concrete, that can handle any New England weather.

Sit back and enjoy.

After the consultation, design, and building phases are complete, it’s time to enjoy your new pool… and we know you’ll love the results. We look forward to working with you to create your incredible outdoor living space – from concept, through implementation, and into reality.
