Share this article:



Imagine having a garden oasis that not only allows you to cool off on hot summer days but also blends seamlessly with the surrounding nature. Natural swimming pools, with their crystal-clear waters and lush plantings, offer just that. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of creating your own natural swimming pool with the help of My Pool Direct, making your dream of swimming in a chemical-free, eco-friendly pool a reality.

Define Your Vision:

Before diving into the process, it’s essential to have a clear vision of what you want your natural swimming pool to look like. Do you envision a small, tranquil pond or a larger swimming area with dedicated zones for swimming and aquatic plants? Knowing your preferences will guide the design and construction process.

Consultation with My Pool Direct:

My Pool Direct is your trusted partner in this venture. Contact us for a consultation. They will discuss your space, understand your vision, and provide expert guidance on design, materials, and budget.

Design and Planning:

Collaborate with My Pool Direct to create a detailed design plan. This plan should include the pool’s size, shape, filtration system, and plant selection. Consider the placement of the pool in your landscape to maximize natural beauty and sunlight.

Planning and Regulations:

Depending on your location, you may need planning for pool construction. My Pool Direct will assist you in navigating these regulations.

Excavation and Construction:

Once the design is finalised and planning is secure, your chosen team of installers will begin the process.

Filtration and Circulation:

One of the key features of natural swimming pools is their biological filtration system. My Pool Direct will recommend and endeavour to supply this system, which relies on aquatic plants and beneficial bacteria to keep the water clean and clear. It’s a chemical-free and eco-friendly way to maintain water quality.

Planting and Landscaping:

As the pool construction nears completion, it’s time to plant aquatic vegetation around the pool’s edges. This will not only enhance the pool’s aesthetics but also contribute to its natural filtration system.

Final Touches:

With the pool in place and the plants thriving, you will then add the finishing touches, such as natural stone or wooden accents, to harmonise the pool with its surroundings.

Maintenance and Enjoyment:

Your natural swimming pool is now ready to be enjoyed. My Pool Direct will provide guidance on routine maintenance, which primarily involves tending to the plants and ensuring the filtration system operates efficiently.


Creating a natural swimming pool with My Pool Direct is a transformative experience. You’ll have a stunning, eco-friendly pool that not only offers a refreshing swim but also enhances your connection with nature. Contact My Pool Direct today to turn your vision into a beautiful reality, and enjoy the benefits of a chemical-free, naturally filtered oasis in your own garden.
