A swimming pond is beautiful all year round, for it lives and changes with the seasons. Plants, animals, and the water make it an experience for young and old. A swimming pond has practical advantages: it is easy to care for and needs no expensive technology or chemicals. The swimming-pond ecosystem regenerates itself. Swimming ponds fit into every type of garden, whether natural or structured design. The pond should suit the style of your garden and blend into the surroundings. In this book, swimming-pond owners speak from experience, tell of the planning and building phases and how swimming ponds enrich their garden pleasure. This book becomes a source of inspiration for all who dream of having a swimming pond.
