Custom Meets Affordability with New Website Offering Swimming Pool Plans
Jun 20, 2008 (08:06 AM EDT)

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla., June 20 /PRNewswire/ -- With warm weather approaching for much of the country, many people are turning their attention to their backyards. For many, that leads to thoughts of swimming pools and spas. South Florida-based landscape architecture firm Outside Productions, Inc. has launched a new website offering sophisticated, custom-style swimming pool and deck plans that fit the budget of the average person. Located on the web at , the online library of professionally- designed swimming pool plans is categorized into six themed series to meet the needs of diverse tastes and homesite dimensions. For a cost of $250 to $750 per plan, customers receive five bid-ready 24"x36" drawing sets at architectural scale that include layout and dimension plans, drainage plans, elevation plan and one to two sheets of associated details such as raised spa, pool coping or trellis cross-sections, an 11"x17" color rendering of the completed pool, a recommended materials list, and a blank bid sheet to take to contractors.

With over 18 years of residential experience as a landscape architect, owner W. Patrick Trefz created Outside Designs to cater to a segment of the market who for budgetary reasons would not typically hire a landscape architect for a custom pool. "I have been asked by friends and family in the past to help them design a more interesting pool that they could still build with a local production-style pool builder, but avoid the basic pool shapes normally offered," said Trefz. "The end result looked more luxurious but still met their budgets, and we thought this was an idea that we could offer to a larger market."

The detailed pool plans have created a win-win for both the individual and the pool builders. Individuals receive a more sophisticated design from a licensed landscape architect and a streamlined design and bid process, while the contractors can provide greater choices to their clients. "We can keep the costs down because the swimming pool plans are pre-designed, but each pool plan still offers the quality and level of sophistication we would offer to any of our high-end estate clients," says Trefz.

Established in 2000, Outside Productions, Inc. is a multidisciplinary custom landscape architecture firm with over 25 years of combined experience serving premier clients throughout Florida and in foreign locales such as Mexico, China, Russia, Costa Rica, St. Lucia and the Bahamas. We deliver full custom plans for private estates, government municipalities and commercial developers and builders. Outside Productions is located at 9220 Brookwood Court, Bonita Springs, FL 34135.
