Landscaping and Pool Services: 

Platinum Landscape & Pools has over 20 years of experience as a Salt Lake City landscape and pool contractor, working on some of the most distinguished properties in this region. Our deep experience, working in the Intermountain Climate, with clients who expect creativity, honesty, craftsmanship and results allows us to offer a comprehensive range of services you can trust!

Our personalized approach combined with our in-house crews of skilled craftsmen ensures we achieve the best result for your needs, budget and site requirements. 

Our expertise covers all aspects of exterior design including swimming pools, paver and stone patios, lawn, planting and trees, landscape lighting, irrigation, walls, pergolas, outdoor kitchens, fire places and water features. 

Though our landscaping design company is Salt Lake City based, we take great pride in delivering award winning outdoor living environments for discerning clients, all over Utah, Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Colorado and Wyoming. 

Design & Build Process: 

Designing and installing thoughtful living environments and swimming pool construction is a complex, interactive process that requires great attention to detail during every phase of the project. Our vast experience in the high-end residential space over the last 20 years allows us to confidently partner and work on the most demanding projects.

We are a Design & Build firm. We can work with an existing plan or architect if needed, but we excel when we collaboratively design together. We offer each client 3D video animation so you can virtually fly through, and experience your landscape, in a conceptual stage

We work collaboratively with clients to Design, Bid and then Construct their dream outdoor environment.

This eliminates the need for the client to engage a separate designer, co-ordinate and compare multiple bids and then manage any conflicts or change orders that arise from differing interpretations of the design and is part of what makes us a top Salt lake City landscape designer. 

Our Design & Build process allows Platinum Landscape & Pools to be the singular source of accountability for all aspects of your project.  

We partner with our clients to manage product specifications, budgets, communications and quality control. 

By aligning our expertise with your goals we can deliver a single, seamless outcome that exceeds all expectations.

  • Discussion of unique features and site conditions.

  • Review of functional requirements and intended uses of the landscape.
