Yes we do. And they can be some of the most exciting and beautiful natural water feature projects we are engaged upon.
A recreation pond or natural swimming pond will be lower maintenance compared to a traditional built swimming pool, is sustainable, looks wonderful throughout the seasons, and is more efficient to run.
It will be made of natural components, working with Mother Nature and not against her, and will sit naturally and beautifully within your landscape 365 days of the year.
It will be a water feature to enjoy for all of the family year round, whether sitting alongside the swim pond with a drink in the evening sun, going for a morning dip or larking around with the family & pets.
Natural Swim ponds are becoming a more popular and green alternative to installing traditional built swimming pools. They are not built with concrete and do not require chemicals to keep the water healthy.
Enquire with us for more information about natural swim ponds, how they compare to the construction and ongoing maintenance costs of traditional swimming pools and how we can help you create a natural swim pond of your dreams. See more information on our Swimming Ponds page.
