Beat the heat this summer and stay cool in a beautiful swimming pond! Not only can you swim in these ponds, they also create a breathe taking garden view to look at year round and create a soothing, calm environment to have gatherings around. So why choose a swimming pond over a swimming pool? Although construction costs may be slightly higher than those of conventional pools, you will save significant amounts on maintenance costs as your pond will not require filtration equipment and chemicals
A pond consists of 2 balanced sections: half plants and half swimming area. The plants, work to stop algae growth by removing phosphorus and nitrogen before it can multiply, leaving you with a clean and clear swimming pond. Conventional pools that use ozone or chlorine are upsetting a natural balance. In fact, it’s hard to keep a chlorinated pool biologically dead because nature gets in there. Swim ponds have a living system which takes care of its self. Aside from being easy to maintain swim ponds require less fill-up water than conventional pools. You also have endless options when it comes to designing your swim pond you can make it exactly how you want it, from adding water falls to fountains and what size and how deep you want it.
Just remember a swim pond can be built for any size yard and any budget. The only limit is your imagination!
