Natural swimming pools use plants to filter the water instead of chemicals and look gorgeous while doing it. Natural swimming pool ideas use gravel stone and clay in place of concrete or fiberglass, and aquatic plants instead of harmful chemicals and complicated mechanical filtering systems. The plants enrich the pool with oxygen, support beneficial bacteria that consume debris and potentially harmful organisms, and give habitat to frogs, dragonflies and other water life. The result is a beautiful, ecologically diverse system that is relatively inexpensive to construct. To see how amazing natural pools are, we’ve collected some inspiring pictures only for you.
