Ashton Group started with Joe and a pickup, a lawnmower and a few shovels in 2003. Since then we have grown to include swimming pools, spas, hot tubs, pergolas, hardscaping, patios, outdoor kitchens, fire features, water features and so much more!
Joe Ashton moved the business to Rehoboth Beach in 2015 to realize his own lifelong dream of living at the beach. After establishing his home, he opened our one of a kind design studio to make it easy for our clients to visualize their projects. With over 15 years of experience we want to design and create a space that will enrich your life.
Throughout the years, our team has grown to include Jose Hernandez, our on-site construction supervisor, Brian Hess, our Pool Superintendent, Nicole Bailey, our business development manager and our new office assistant, Brianne. Our team is on site or never more than a call or an email away.
