Some Paint, Some Sculpt: Al Curtis Creates 3 Dimensional Art in Homeowners’ Back Yards

(July 11, 2011) – Artists come in all types and use countless different media—paint, clay, pencil or just about anything else. Americans love to decorate their homes with art, but not many people think of their backyards as a place to showcase a piece of art. But for customers of Al Curtis, innovative pool designer with Legendary Escapes Pool Scapes, a backyard is more than a plot of grass and a place to have a barbeque. “Al is an artist;” says Sandi Maki, “he creates 3-dimensional art in people’s backyards.”

Curtis’ experience with swimming pool service goes back 20+ years, but his passion for creating backyard art could be credited to his unique mix of collegiate studies. Curtis studied both art and physics in school, which have worked together to serve him well in the pool business. With his passion, background and knowledge, Curtis is the perfect person to turn an ordinary backyard into an incredible 3-dimensional work of art.

One look at Curtis’ portfolio with Legendary Escapes will prove his expertise. Al is currently one of the only pool builders in the country to build hybrid pools—using both gunite and vinyl in pool construction. Hybrid pools are unique and completely customizable, allowing each customer to get exactly what he or she wants out of a pool.

On building these masterpieces, Curtis says, “I’ve been training for this challenge all of my life. Water has become a philosophy to me. How can I affect a customer’s world, how can I enrich a customer’s life by what I do? How can I take the concept of what we do and make it truly spectacular? It’s not driven by dollars and is possible at every economic level. It’s outside the box thinking. We operate outside the box. It’s about architecture. It’s about art history. It’s about bringing something to our homeowners, a part of something that has not yet been done or explored.”
