What is a Swim (Recreational) Pond?

A recreational pond is a water installation that combines the natural features of a pond with the recreational fun of a standard pool. Recreational ponds are relatively new in the U.S., however, they have been hugely popular in Australia and Europe for a long time. Building a recreational (also known as “swim) pond requires experience and meticulous calculations.

The Advantages of a Natural Swim Pond

Having a swimming pool in the backyard can be a welcome addition to a home. What many don’t realize, however, is that recreational ponds can make an even greater addition to a home or property, combining the wonders of the natural world with recreational swimming. Rec ponds seamlessly blend into the landscape, enhancing the natural beauty of your property. They also serve as workshops of wonder for children, allowing them to explore the natural world and enjoy pond features such as fish and lilies.

Recreational Ponds in the DMV

Recreational ponds are particularly advantageous for homes in the DMV. They provide vital resources for area wildlife, including birds. They can also be used for harvesting rainwater, limiting stormwater runoff and helping to preserve the delicate ecosystem of the Chesapeake.
Plus, recreational ponds do this all while enhancing the beauty and value of your property.

Adding Value to Your Home with a Recreational Pond

Recreational ponds add to the value and beauty of your home throughout the year, too. While pools have to be covered up for most of the year in the DMV, a recreational pond is a living and thriving addition to your property 365 days a year. Have a more formal property?
