Do you love a swimming pool that looks so natural as a pond integrated into the surroundings in your yard? I’d prefer this lovely “wild” pond than a pool! David Pagan Butler does and he did something really amazing in it. It would be a blast to take the kids out in the sizzling summer afternoon, with the plants and beach around! This YouTube video from user PermacultureMedia shows how he made a chemical free swimming hole that blends perfectly into its surroundings. The water in this pool is purified with biological filters, plants, and some solar energy. So fabulous in every other way. You may have seen a lot of posts and shows lately about people getting companies to transform pools into gorgeous ponds like these (a trend? maybe), but here you can learn how to make this natural transformation yourself.
You can see some more natural pools here. Good Housekeeping has gathered up a bunch of fun ones that are sure to thrill.
