The Best Swim-Pond Design

Immerse yourself into a beautiful world of dragonflies, damselflies and natural aquatic plants. The crisp refreshing water, free of chemicals cleanses the soul and the body. SwimPonds allow us to create ecosystems and let them flourish, whilst enjoying a leisurely swim.

What is a SwimPond?

SwimPonds avoid the chlorinated water and allow designers to move away from the industrial design of a swimming pool. Instead, the water is cleaned by a completely natural system.

The maintenance of a swim pond is also easier and more cost effective then the chemical pools. Let nature take its course, and a SwimPond will clean itself.
