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.
Our latest pool was the conversion of an older natural swimming pool to a pure living pool . The pool had been built by others, but to a poor standard with too small a plant filter and little guidance or support or maintenance .
Rather than uprade the natural filtration our client opted for a totally natural chemical-free Pure Living Pool. Now virtually maintenance-free . Note the robot in the pool. This comes on automatically each day for a week at atime before emptying. The pool is small and has minimal costs to run; electricity of about £50 per year and every two years replacement filter media of £500.
Heating is free. It is fitted with a solar heating cover. This gives temperatures 4-8c above maximum day time tempertures. Which means when it is 14-15c outside in October you can still be swimming in a pool that is above 20c without a horrendous fuel bill. Who would have thought that was possible?
The existing swimming pool was relined with a black liner to mirror the enclosed garden and trees. Lily beds either side of the steps into the pool create an enticing entrance. The lilies are prolific as they are fed extra food pellets (they do not get the nutrients they need just from the water). Simple design working at its best.
The formal pool conversion and enlargement transformed the space into a refreshing new water and flower garden with an arts and craft feel.
A pure living pool built in 2014 as a conversion of kidney-shaped 60’spool . They were well built then which means a straightfoward switch to natural filtration
