Click on the pictures below to see a gallery and short description of our recent Pure Living Pools with Plants projects:
Our second project in this Hertfordshire village. We were asked to convert an existing concrete pool that was not being used anymore for swimming. The brief was to create a strong visual centre-piece for the garden which could be admired as a water feature and used occasionally for a refreshing dip.
This pool conversion project was completed in 2017. We were asked to transform a redundant concrete pool into a eye-catching water feature and wildlife haven. The owner was a passionate gardener who took a keen interest in all the planting and was thrilled with the final result.
A pure living pool. The first of these pictures were taken when the pool was completed and the clay filter bed had been stirred up (although it is safe to swim from day one). After two weeks the pool was crystal clear as seen in the last six pictures.
Vilalte is an ancient monastery situated at a height of 1500m on Mount Canigou in the Pyrenees.
It is being developed as a musical retreat and place of teaching. This planted living pool has foam filters under the infinite edge, clay lily and oxygenator beds and open plant reed filters. Water is also cleaned with a flow form water sculpture through circular and pulsing motions. These are known to balance the elements within water, enhance plant growth and promote health in the water.
It is hoped this pool will become a focus of inspiration and pure living as it starts to grow and breath new life into what was before a dry rocky mountainside. With 400m3 of water it could have at 40 swimmers in it all of the time and maintain clean water through the day.
Our first natural pool using the new living pool filter 5 years ago enabled a clean, modern swimming pool look. We added some dynamism with a causeway to divide the garden and pool space, glass bridge , water falls and deck surrounded by water on three sides .
This pool on the south coast is just back from the beach, sunken and sheltering behind an old watch house which was converted into a contemporary home. The biological filter was left open and planted. A light grey lining gives a more natural aqua marine colour.
Many pools we build are small and not dissimilar to fit into town gardens and smaller plots This is just one of them that was particularly challenging to do without damaging trees and shrubs.
A classical octagonal pool pure- living pool with materials in keeping with the grounds of a grade 1* listed house. A new of mineral material filtration was used to stimulate plant growth whilst helping maintain the sharpest water clarity possible . A traditional formal design successfully hides its use as a swimming pool. The Italianate frame-work enhances this setting.
