About Us


The beginning
More than twenty years ago, David Martine started his business, now known as Treescapes and Big Wave Pools, with only a mower and a dream. A student at Wichita State University at the time, David was determined to pave his own way. It wasn’t long before his business evolved into the full-time maintenance and construction company it is today with nearly 40 craftsmen.

David attributes his success and strong work ethic to his father, Dick Martine, as they worked together for many years as father and son, always completing one job well before moving onto the next one.

Today, David is able to combine his passion for hard work and the outdoors in his custom pool/landscape business and home and garden center which are located on four acres in Andover, KS.

Treescapes and Big Wave Pools
We make outdoor living more enticing and gracious through the seamless fusion of efficient engineering and stunning custom landscapes. Our business strives to capture the emotional experience of combining indoor and outdoor living, especially when your family and friends gather. Our designs help everyone relax and truly enjoy the outdoor experience.

Big Wave Pool designs and custom builds gunite and vinyl pools offering the ultimate in choice and selection to the Wichita area. As a licensed general contractor specializing in outdoor living environments, we can provide turn-key projects with detail in planning and supervision. Our business encompasses all facets of an outdoor space: landscape design and installation, irrigation, fine grading, drainage solutions, hardscapes and more.

In addition to the specialized services, The Outdoor Living Center is a destination for inspiration! Our home and garden center carries a wide array of live goods anything from large trees and unique plantings to all of your gardening supply needs. Our outdoor showroom provides an inviting environment to view all of our furniture, vignettes, containers, and scenes in displays that will help you visualize your own outdoor space. Our knowledgeable staff is always on hand to address questions, from which pellets to buy for your Traeger grill to which plants and accessories will help make your outdoor space “pop.”

In 2013, Treescapes and Big Wave Pools was accredited with the Masters of Design Award by Pool & Spa. Being one of only three winners throughout the U.S. was a significant honor. Every project is specialized to our clients’ wants and needs. As a turnkey general contractor, we can see your project through from start to finish.
