Click on the pictures below to see a gallery and short description of our recent natural swimming pool projects:
A delightful Living Pool constructed in the summer of 2015.
A filter bed stream runs from a under a false brick and grass bridge to jetties and out over stepped shallow areas into a wide rounded pond.
A large natural pool made with a snaking shape. A deck causeway looks like it is separating marsh planting from the pool but this is an illusion as the filterplants are just down one side. The gazebo as with most of the buildings by our pools was designed, supplied and built by us.
Covered by a gardening magazine and on the front cover of a natural swimming pool book, this pool is one of our favourites. Small geometric designs always work well, however informal the setting.
This small swimming lake was built in record time of 6 weeks by half digging and half raising the ground. The body of calm water and planting has brought a new serenity to what was an open and inhospitably cold site in the forest. The equipment,construction and planting depths were designed specially to cope with to -30C in winter. It is much used in temperatures of +30C in the summer as soon as up to a metre of ice has melted.
A natural pool with a few fun features; a floating wood island, diving board and bubbling fountain .
A mid grey liner just in the shallow area gives a deep green /blue hue and the depth can be judged by eye by those diving in. In the deep area, a black lining creates reflections of the South Downs on the surface .
The owner a doctor swims every day of the year. It must be good for you.
The pool at Asthall, Oxfordshire is in a garden and house open for art and sculpture.The design was for a simple clear water canal lined with lillies and deep oxygenating plants either side, converted from within the walls of an existing large swimming pool. It provides a reflective surface for pieces displayed at its side and small floating installations within it. As featured in the ‘On Form’ sculpture show in 2014.
