Installing a pool in Southern California

Steph.ssMarch 18, 2014

We are looking at redoing our backyard by tearing out our old jacuzzi, hardscaping and landscaping and start over from scratch. We would like to build a medium sized pool, outdoor room (patio with a tile roof) with fireplace, replace irrigation and landscaping. Our backyard is about 60' x 100', so we have a pretty good size yard considering where we live. We are not sure where to start, but think that a Design/Build might be the way to go. I was hoping to hear any recommendations or experience any other home owners had with their backyard and pool project that live in Orange County, Ca. (or nearby) and what your overall cost was.

For the scope of your project in the county you live in you are looking at over 100,000 to do your yard project if you build it correctly.

Hope that helps answer your question.

Thanks Pools94. We are finding that out. The rough estimates we have gotten so far are $150,000 up to $200,000. Another rough estimate for a 450sp ft pool is starting at $40,000. Add anything to it, like a small water feature or raised wall, it jumps up to $50,000 and up.
