Wetland plants provide the filtration for this swimming pool built on a hillside.
The bio-filter is separated from the swimming area with the help of a rubber lined concrete wall.
Grass transitions to sand, then to pebbles, and a step down begins the swimming.
Knitted in rows like as sweater, a dry laid retaining wall mimics the anticipated movement of water and creates the space for the pool within a field of Alpacas.
It is fall but this amphibian and his companion still seem ready for a swim. A stone pad rests on stone legs on an unmovable boulder below.
Sixteen months after construction began, the pond is full and ready to invite.
A combination of existing trees and new plantings detail this private woodland pond after it was dredged and restored.
