This is a great example of a DIY project in which a dreamy backyard landscaping design idea, in this case an amazing pond, was easily materialized without much professional help!
The construction process is not at all complicated to understand but does require more than a few hours of work. However, the end result is totally worth and definitely increased the atmosphere of this backyard. But first things first. You have to set out with a plan and know what steps you have to follow. The thing about this example is that it is a functional swimming pool whilst enhancing the looks of the backyard. A few rocks and logs can mean a great deal. Combine it with a warm coloured wooden deck and you have the perfect image of a modest sized backyard where the issue of limited space was eliminated by an ingenious planning concept. Furthermore, the rustic welcoming image provided by this backyard feature doesn’t come with an endless bill. The materials and labor work were carefully dozed and chosen so that the budget wont’t stay in the way of a dream backyard. In fact, I don’t think that more money would have provided better looks. It’s brilliant just the way it is so don’t give up on your dream of a wonderful scenery just because of a short budget. If you choose the exact materials you need and nothing more, you’ll get it done.
In this case, apart from the wooden deck, the rocks maybe, the water proofing layer and the rental of the excavator, it was all done without spending anything. Normally, swimming pools can come in a precast shape or require some sort of expensive insulation material but this works just as well and if you think about, it is protected by the rocks and from damaging factors like sunlight. We have previously featured an article about swimming pools on our website: Backyard Landscaping Ideas-Swimming Pool Design. And on top of that, the insulation material cannot even be seen so it actually feels like a natural pond. But this element is only a part of the brilliance of this project. Because on its own, any sort of visual enhancer is worth nothing. But when becomes a focal point and daily activities are focused around it, meaning that people can really enjoy it, it might become the most important part of the house. And this is just the case because the house has an extension covered in glass where they placed the dinning area which, in relation with the swimming pond, becomes a so much more enoyable place that it would have been if placed in placed in a random part of the house. This proves vision and the fact that the owner planned everything before he began the construction process and it turned out great.
