DIY Natural Swimming Pond Build
What does the idea of a natural swimming pool sound like? Is there enough space in your garden to create one? Natural swimming pools are the hottest trend for green living and definitely deserve a second thought.
Your natural swimming pool can be either simple or very complex – it depends on how much you want to spend on it. It’s true that such pools cost more than normal ones, but they give you the pleasure of being surrounded by a natural habitat.
The first decision you have to make is whether to build a swimming pond or a DIY natural swimming pool.
If you prefer a wild swimming environment with a low-tech pool and lots of plants, we recommend a swimming pond. Unlike a DIY pool, it emulates a real “swimming in the wild” feeling and does not look like modern pool settings.
However, you must be aware that the design features of such a pond are very specific – they are complex to build and require carefully planted and well maintained regeneration zones.
- Go for a simple shape
- Settle the basics first, and only then think of the extras
- Make a step-by-step plan for each stage of the construction process
- Put some extra money aside in case you forget to do something (or in case you decide to hire professional help)
- Take your time – this process is not simple, so keep your schedule realistic.
