Our Company

An Austin Custom Swimming Pool Builder since 1998

Poolscapes, Inc. was established in 1998 in Round Rock, Texas where Richard Lynch began building quality custom gunite swimming pools in the Austin and Central Texas area with current superintendent and longtime friend Mike Meyer. With their expertise in the industry and ability to build quality pools while keeping customers happy, the business grew by word of mouth. Poolscapes, Inc. takes great pride in their finished product, and that has enabled the Austin Pool Company to grow and remain in business for decades. With good communication and a vision and understanding of the design, we are able to ensure that every aspect of the design is executed correctly, producing a quality finished product.

A Local Family Owned Business

Richard Lynch (President) has worked in the swimming pool industry for over thirty years. He started his first pool business in the northeast and eventually followed the warm weather to Austin, TX, where he pursued other careers only to return to the pool builder industry. Since then, he has used his passion and love for pool design and pool building to make Poolscapes one of the premier Austin Pool Builders. After graduating college in 2005 his son, Ryan Lynch, joined the Poolscapes team full-time after working part-time for several years learning the business while attending school. Around that same time, Mike Meyer’s brother, Tom, moved to Austin from California where he had been involved in his family pool business his whole life. He brought years of experience in the pool industry, and Poolscape’s service and maintenance division was created.

Poolscapes, Inc. is a family-owned and operated business and plans to stay that way as we look to our future in the swimming pool industry. We take great pride in the quality of our finished product and are confident that our customers will feel the same way about their pools. Whether you are looking for a simple swimming pool to help you beat the heat, or a jaw-dropping poolscape with a complete outdoor living environment, we look forward to the opportunity to earn your business.
