How to Build a Natural Swimming Pool
The Complete Guide to Healthy Swimming at Home
A natural swimming pool is an exciting addition to a garden. It is the ultimate play resource that provides a healthy, chlorine-free environment for swimming, a living ecosystem for nature lovers and whole new world of aquatic plants for gardeners.
This practical handbook describes a wide range of pools from simple "swimming ponds" to models with separate plant regeneration areas, and others that resemble traditional pools. It explains how plants are used to keep the water clean and advises on pumps, skimmers and filters to limit the growth of algae, encourage the growth of biofilm and keep the water sparkling.
Natural swimming pools are easy to maintain, have low running costs and require less fill-up water than conventional pools. This book provides tried-and-trusted advice on a feature that is increasingly in demand among aspirational, eco-minded gardeners and designers.

What Reviewers Are Saying
If you have every tackled a DIY project for the first time, you will know that having a good set of instructions is critical if you want it to work properly and look spectacular.
We get lots of enquiries from people across the world who are keen to build their own DIY swimming pond or natural swimming pool and are struggling to find comprehensive guidance and advise.
We were therefore delighted when Wolfram Kircher contacted us to discuss his new book which he intended to be a definitive guide to building and planting a swimming pond.
The book arrived and it did not disappoint. * Clearwater Revival * "It is a well laid out, detailed and useful book for anyone wanting to learn more about natural pools and I only wish I'd read it before building my own." -- Ben Law * Permaculture Magazine *
