Clients Brief: To design and create a natural swimming pool that looks natural to its surroundings to enjoy all year round with an outstanding water feature.
Bio: This was a joint project with an English landscaping company based in the Algarve, Portugal, they and the client requested Pond Stars UKs expertise in pond/pool building, and who were we to refuse some time in the sunshine!
The natural swimming pool was never going to be a small job for Pond Stars UK, the client brief was simple and gave us plenty of room to play around with the design.
In the end to compliment its natural surroundings we went for a lagoon type main swimming pool, with a jacuzzi area,with the water flowing from the jacuzzi via a waterfall into the main pool.
The hole was dug using both machinery and hard labour, then instead of using a traditional pond liner the client opted for a cement liner, this was poured and set. We then laid a layer of natural stone shingle with the idea being that once the water was in this would create the ‘colour’ of the water.
Natural stone was used around the pool to compliment its natural surroundings along with many native plants in and around the pool.
Take a look at the whole process in the images below.
