It was a moment of clarity. What have we been doing all these years? Why choose to swim in sterile, chlorinated water when you can swim in chemical-free crystal-clear water instead? Birds will swoop and dive, dragonflies will weave and bob, butterflies will move from plant to plant and the shallows will be a playground for any inquisitive child, young and old. With a natural pool, you can invite nature into your garden and create a beautiful aesthetic element to compliment your landscape throughout the year.
Approach & Aesthetic:
At Nicholsons Lockhart Garratt, we are now working hard to move away from chlorine pools built using significant amounts of concrete, instead striving to build natural pools with little-to-no use of this carbon-heavy material. We are collaborating with experts in the field to guide our approach and strongly feel that now is the right time to be taking this leap.
Style-wise, natural pools can be built in a myriad of ways and the natural approach does not mean that a pool cannot have the sharp and smart finish that we are accustomed to seeing from the traditional method of pool building. In many ways, the natural pool approach opens huge opportunities on the design side as these pools and ponds can be made to blend seamlessly into the surrounding landscape.
