I am so excited to be your designer and working with you on transforming your backyard! Before we get started, I wanted to share a little bit about me and my background. I was raised in the Lake Highlands neighborhood of Dallas and after high school I pursued by college education at Texas A&M University (Whoop!) While at Texas A&M I earned my Bachelor of Landscape Architecture in the spring of 2010 and shortly afterwards started my career with Claffey Pools. Throughout college I worked in many areas of landscape architecture from commercial design, golf course design to residential design. While I will always have a passion for golf (hello, backyard putting green!), I found a deep love and appreciation for residential design and working to create something unique and dynamic for all my clients.
I started with Claffey Pools in 2010 as a designer and worked on sales drawings and drafting construction plans for our projects. After learning the business from the drafting/construction side, I moved to the design/sales department and have been there ever since. Over the last 10 years I have earned numerous design awards and am always keeping an eye on the latest trends and innovations to shape my client’s backyards.
When I’m not at the office or out at a job site, I am back home in Lake Highlands where we have lived since 2015. I have a lovely wife, Lindsey, and two energetic young boys, Nate and Ethan. Some of my hobbies include golf (obviously!), the outdoors, sketching new golf courses, Aggie football, Mavericks basketball and now coaching my boys’ sports teams!
I feel very blessed to work for such a great company that thrives to put the customer first and build the best product we can for each client we have. I can’t wait to put together something truly special for your property that can give you a great space to use and make family memories together.
We strive to create a workplace that centers around the importance of each employee. We seek to use the collective talents of our team to create positive experiences worth remembering. In 1987, Paul Claffey set out to follow a dream. The dream was to use his knowledge as a masonry contractor to create a family business based on faith, honesty, integrity, hard work, and a commitment to quality.
Over 30 years later, Claffey Pools has built over 10,000 projects, been recognized as the family business of the year in Texas, won hundreds and hundreds of design awards, contributed over a million dollars to charity, and is ranked #3 in America by Pool and Spa News.
