We installed this swimming pond back in 2013. The client recently decided a patio would be a nice addition to the existing landscape. We used irregular natural cleft bluestone to cover an area of lawn coming from the existing stone slab stairs to the pond.

One of our crews is finishing up work at this old historic estate in Bethlehem, New Hampshire! The landscaping for this property had to be integrated into an existing ledge, partly consisting of a giant rock. We put in a swimming/Koi pond equipped with a three pump system for maximum flow and circulation, an aerator, and color changing underwater LED lights! Both the lights and equipment use a Pentair Easy Touch System which can be activated with any Smartphone or tablet. The pond is fed by a huge, curving waterfall that starts from behind the gazebo.
This is a swimming pond we installed last year in Cornwall, VT. We are pleased to see the plantings are growing great and toys near the perimeter means it is getting its use! This pond was made easy to get into and shallow because the owners have two small children who they wanted to be able to safely play in and near the pond. Meanwhile the parents can sit on the small patio and soak their feet or wade into the deeper area to cool off.
If you’re looking for a more natural look and feel for your outdoor living space, we can design and install a natural swimming pond, waterfall or other unique water feature on your property. Swimming ponds are great for older homes because their natural look doesn’t seem out of place like some pools can. Swimming ponds can also help add a natural feel to any modern home. They are also more environmentally friendly and chemical free. Just like a pool, swimming ponds use UV light, skimmers, sand filters and two bottom drains to stay clean - no need for chlorine! A bog can also be used to keep the water clean, because the plants naturally work as a filter.
Landshapes transforms an existing swimming pond. We terraced the steep slope to accommodate a small irregular bluestone patio facing views of the mountains. Our masons out did themselves again building beautiful stone retaining walls holding back a steep slope. The swimming pond was partially drained, dredged, and our crew recut the edges. Two aerators where installed to move and oxogenate the pond for better water quality.
