Cascade Pools & Landscapes is the concerted vision of successful landscape designers and builders Kris Markowski and Sami Rafee, equally passionate about bringing beauty and function to the architectural landscape of Toronto and it's surrounding suburbs.

Cascade was born out of years of experience with residential landscape construction. As demanding builders, Kris and Sami have earned a reputation for delivering remarkable residential projects built with both purpose and precision. That's why they decided to channel their architectural vision and building expertise into the pool and landscape arena; to deliver an elegant, quality pool product to satisfy equally demanding clients. "Together with a professional team we ensure that your outdoor living spaces are always full and rich, in order that you may always live well and beautifully," explains Kris.

The themes of refined architectural design and construction quality are apparent in every aspect of Cascade's mission. "When it comes to building, above all else we value form, function and inspired design," explains Sami. "The result is a simplicity that delineates pure luxury, every time."

For Kris, the impressive beautification of residential landscapes across the Greater Toronto Area is a testament to Cascade's success. While blending contemporary architectural styles with cutting-edge design, each property immediately grabs one's attention. Like true pioneers, Cascade's pools reflect a completely new vision for pools; a dramatically higher standard of quality, design, form and function. "We put a lot of effort into elevating the quality of the materials that we use to build our pools and have integrated the commercial grade standards that we are so familiar with. Our standard is more concrete, better reinforcing steel and commercial grade finishings," says Kris.

Cascade has continued to expand their industry partnerships to bring clients the best level of care, craftsmanship and quality. Kris and Sami oversee every pool and landscape that bears the Cascade name.
