All about Terranova Design build as a swimming pool contractor, backyard designer, landscape aritchect and decking builder. Founded in 1998 we have completed hundreds of contractor projects in our local area. We value the feedback from customers and welcome reviews to let us know how we preformed on your backyard project.


     Terra Nova Design Build was established in 1998 with one goal in mind: To create unique and beautiful outdoor spaces for the D.C. Metropolitan area. Terra Nova is a family owned firm focused on being a personal concierge to our clients.
Terra Nova is known for quality, creativity, and unmatched customer service. Terra Nova Design Build guarantees the finished product for years to come. Attention to detail through close project management exemplifies our goals. We are very easy to work with and pride ourselves on constant communication with the homeowner throughout the build and thereafter. This is the reason that a great deal of our work is referral based.

   Terra Nova uses highly trained certified masons, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, architects, and pool builders to ensure our customers get the best of all trades. We coordinate everything so you do not need to be the “general contractor”.  Since 1998, we have built relationships with these trades to ensure a smooth and worry free build. Some of our trades have been in business 50+ years! The owner is on the job site daily to keep quality control at the highest standard.
