Vermont Natural Swimming Pond
This is a swimming pond we installed last year in Cornwall, VT. We are pleased to see the plantings are growing great and toys near the perimeter means it is getting its use! This pond was made easy to get into and shallow because the owners have two small children who they wanted to be able to safely play in and near the pond. Meanwhile the parents can sit on the small patio and soak their feet or wade into the deeper area to cool off.
If you’re looking for a more natural look and feel for your outdoor living space, we can design and install a natural swimming pond, waterfall or other unique water feature on your property. Swimming ponds are great for older homes because their natural look doesn’t seem out of place like some pools can. Swimming ponds can also help add a natural feel to any modern home. They are also more environmentally friendly and chemical free. Just like a pool, swimming ponds use UV light, skimmers, sand filters and two bottom drains to stay clean - no need for chlorine! A bog can also be used to keep the water clean, because the plants naturally work as a filter.
