About Backyard Oasis

Let me tell you a little about us...

My name is Randy and I am the owner of Backyard Oasis in Bardstown, KY; home of My Old Kentcky Home State Park and to some of you more importantly The Bourbon Capital of the World!!!! Together with my Son Brandon (when he is not in school or playing football) my mother Gloria we run the show.  


Backyard Oasis has been a dream of mine since 2007. I started working for pool store in 2003 while there I managed the day to day operation for about 4 years and had a ball. Life changes forced me to move on but the bug had bitten me. For the next 7 years really all i did was sit at my home office and design and plan for my chance to open my own pool store. Then the owner of the original pool store called me out of the blue and asked me if I wanted to buy him out. I was shocked but excited, thrilled and scared at the same time. But I took the plunge bought the business, changed the name and went to work. The first year was a little rough being back in the pool game, I had a lot of remembering to do. The second year was harder simply because our growth was far more than I could have expected. We moved locations, hired some really good people to help me and it just took off.
