√32 Awesome Natural Small Pools Design Ideas Best For Private Backyard #pond #…
If you want a swimming pool in the backyard, but don’t want to spend tens of thousands of dollars to install it, then a natural pool is the right choice. This is an organic and popular alternative to traditional buried pools. The main difference is in the building materials used and in the filter system.
A natural pool can be designed to look like a classic buried pool, or it can be designed to fit into nature and imitate a pond or lake. The biggest difference in design is in the filtration. A natural pool uses plants to filter the water. Some designs have an edge of water plants, others have a separate plant pond that is connected to the main water.
The bottom of a natural pool is lined. Some people think that a natural pool is just a hole in the ground. This is not the case. The pool is lined with natural sand, bentonite clay or otherwise a plastic liner. There are new environmentally friendly plastics that many people use. In strategic places a layer of gravel must be laid to ensure that fresh water is kept in the swimming area.
The plant part should be about the same size as the swimming part. The plants do not float in the swimming area. Plants are anchored to the edge of the pool or in an adjacent pond. The plant pond should be connected to the main swimming area. A barrier is placed between the plant part and the swimming area. This is to ensure that the plants do not go to the swimming area.
