About Back Yard Connection

Serving Texas Homeowners with Luxury Custom Pools and Outdoor Living Areas Since 2000

Chad Reed started Back Yard Connection with the proposition that he could build better, more beautiful pools and outdoor living areas for Texans. He knew that his combination of experience along with a top-notch team of pool builders could build highly creative, stunning pools to help his customers enjoy their down time in style. For almost 22 years, Chad and Kelly Reed have served residents as premier East Texas pool and outdoor living experts.
