Unique Outdoor Spaces | Spotlight on AquaTerra Outdoors

By Courtney Clark

Frisco, TX is home to AquaTerra Outdoors, a landscape design build firm that designs, builds and manages award winning outdoor environments that exceed clients' expectations. The team has a clear vision to provide well thought out designs, high quality construction and exceptional customer service to their clients. They believe that crafting outdoor spaces comes naturally from amazing people with a great respect for living outdoors.

Tal Thevenot, AquaTerra's founder, was inspired to create the company from his love for the outdoors. While he grew up on the farms of Iowa, he was drawn to modern design; this led him to earn a degree in Landscape Architecture. Thevenot started the company in 2007 with a clear vision: to offer "uncompromising outdoor environments to discerning clients."

Why should home owners choose working with AquaTerra? Design Director Travis Cisneros advises that working with a design+build firm like AquaTerra is recommended for the benefit of the client. He says a single contact during the processes of design, construction, and post-construction creates a strong relationship with team and the client. This relationship will help the team continue to deliver a quality project from start to finish. "Let's be honest, all projects have obstacles that arise, be it city regulations, problems during construction or even problems after construction", Cisneros says. "The benefit of having us involved from start to finish is we can easily communicate with the client how we are overcoming the issues while keeping the high quality design intentions intact."

The firm's designs are composed of many elements including landscaping, swimming pools, outdoor kitchens, covered patios, fire features and more. At the beginning of each project the designers work with clients to discover what is right for them. As Cisneros says, "the design process starts with the clients sharing examples of outdoor environments they like, and sometimes even ones they do not like. In addition to their style we get to know their family's experiences, how they like to entertain, and what they enjoy doing outdoors." The more familiar the team is with the client helps them develop innovative concepts that will address all of their needs.

AquaTerra's success speaks for itself: They have won two International Gold Awards for their design and construction of innovative aquatic structures as well as multiple regional awards for their work. Also, on Houzz, a platform for home remodeling and design, the firm has won "Best of Houzz" for design and service. Reviewers on Houzz praise the company, describing the firm as detail-oriented, unique, and hard-working.

According to Cisneros, "Our clients come to us with the expectation of originality, style and quality. Our awards reflect the team's passion for high quality design and construction." The results? Beautiful outdoor environments that fit your entire family's lifestyle.
