A Man Spent Three Years Creating A Beautiful Natural Swimming Pond In His Yard
There’s nothing like jumping into a cool pool on a hot summer’s day. However, the price of installing and maintaining a swimming pool is pretty astronomical, and it’s certainly not in the budget for everyone. That’s where one man’s clever idea comes in. He decided to create a stunning natural swimming pond on his property that puts the common swimming pool to shame.
The project took over three years to create, and once you see the scale of it, you’ll understand why. He started out by excavating the site, and was unfortunately set back a few months by a giant rainstorm. When that was taken care of, his family got to work laying the pond liner and pouring sand over top.
Next, stone barrier walls were started, and the pond’s pumping system was installed. But he didn’t stop there. He built a beautiful waterfall, a set of stairs leading down to the lower swimming area, and began the first round of landscaping. While continuing with landscaping and other jobs, he knew it would take at least a year for some of the muddy rainwater to clear out, and the fresh, clear water to take its place.
Now, this family and their dogs enjoy their swimming pond all summer long! It even features a large sand beach to relax on by the pond’s shore. And in case you were wondering, yes – the pond is full of fish! Bass, bluegill, catfish, and grass carp all call this pond home. This spectacular creation is a perfect example of how time and hard work can totally transform the look and vibe of your outdoor spaces.
