Publisher Comments:

If you wish to swim in clear, soft water and have a beautiful garden feature all year round, you will need this book to create your own paradise. For anyone who has had some experience of building work and is keen to build their own natural swimming pool with or without some specialist assistance, then this book will provide you with everything you need to know.

It contains over 80 illustrations and coloured photographs and takes you through the whole process in an easy to understand way. It also contains over 50 useful detailed scaled construction drawings.

Michael Littlewood’s methods and designs come from his considerable experience as a natural landscape architect and garden designer. He has designed and built water features and swimming pools in many countries throughout the world.

This book is a logical follow on from his previous book Natural Swimming Pools: Inspiration for Harmony with Nature, with new details on everything from building instructions, assessing and maintaining water quality to considering types of plants and handling maintenance.

Your natural swimming pool will be an attractive addition to your home and simple maintenance will keep you enjoying this wonderful asset for many years to come. The presentation of this book is enhanced by the excellent graphic layout and coloured photographs
