About Sonoma Backyard
It all started in 1972, when the Tavenners opened a pool construction company and showroom in Sonoma County. Son Thomas Tavenner grew up in the business, seeing how much joy people got from their transformed backyards. When he took over the business, he realized that no one in the county catered to backyards. He branched into hot tubs, and, opening the current location thirteen years ago, finally had enough room for a complete backyard store. And here we are today, still designing and building breathtaking backyards throughout Northern California.
With deep roots in the local community after 40 years in the business, Sonoma Backyard’s biggest claim to fame is its friendly, personal service. No robotic corporate mentality here. Just small-town service offered by long-time employees who love what they do.
Most of our employees have been with us at least ten years. To them, this isn’t just a job. It’s a service of love. And what does that mean to you, our treasured customers? It means a fun and positive buying experience. Our customers can rest easy knowing that we will be there for them every step of the way.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
We recently had a custom lap pool built from this company. While it’s a process, it was all totally worth it. The pool is fantastic and has exceeded my expectations. I would totally recommend Thomas and his staff. They were terrific!

We bought a spa at the Sonoma County fair just a couple months ago. It was delivered perfectly. After a couple days we noticed a leak….These guys handled everything like pros. In about 3 weeks we had our new factory fresh spa that worked great the first time we turned it on. So I would not buy a Spa Hot tub ect. from anybody else! These guys stand behind what they sell and that’s getting hard to find these days.

Sonoma Backyard has very high quality outdoor furniture and an amazing staff who went above and beyond the call of duty for us! We purchased a discounted, showroom model beautiful outdoor kitchen that came with a propane BBQ grill. They overnighted us a conversion kit so we could hook it up to our natural gas. When the kit was delayed beyond the date for our celebratory BBQ, they came over and hooked up propane so that we could have our BBQ. Then, when the kit came, they delivered it and took the propane tank away….I highly recommend Sonoma BBQ for their service and quality!

Wow did I hit the jackpot! This is the best store I have ever experienced in all of Sonoma County and Marin County combined! I was looking for patio furniture as well as a hot tub and ended up purchasing both from Sonoma Backyard. Not only was the salesperson very knowledgeable but my experience all the way through delivery and set up was a class act. A+ to everyone at Sonoma Backyard for making this experience so easy. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for quality backyard products!

Wow! Purchased my swim spa last month. After extensive research before contacting them, I found Thomas and Aaron to be very knowledgeable and professional to work with. I was able to ‘try’ the spa before committing and I loved it! Their pricing was the best I could find locally. The spa was delivered and set up in a timely manner and I enjoy it daily. It’s everything they represented it to be! I called a few times with maintenance questions and my calls were returned immediately. I highly recommend this business for anyone looking for a spa!
