Swimming Pond or Pool?
What’s the difference?
Pool or Pond?
Swimming pools are often the first thing that people think of on a hot summer day. Swimming ponds are the next step in man-made swimming facilities.
Many land owners use their ponds primarily for recreational activities, picnics, barbecues and swimming. Sand beaches for swimming are easily constructed and maintained. The number of urban ponds in suburbs, parks, and housing additions has increased.
Adding a Beach
If you’re adding a beach to an existing pond, it’s easy to dump a load of sand on shore and spread it out.
Swimming ponds enhance the look, enjoyment and value of any residence. Each is custom designed to enhance your property and lifestyle based on your specific needs and to take maximum advantage of land use. It is important that you can use a synthetic pond liner in any soil environment!
There is nothing like swimming to bring the family together. Build a pond this year and you will get to know everyone’s friends as well. Having a pond in Ohio provides four seasons of activities.
Swimming works practically all the muscles in the body. Swimming can develop a swimmer’s general strength, cardiovascular fitness and endurance. Exercise provides cushion for your joints, protecting them from the impact associated with most forms of exercise.
The pond can be a used for swimming and extended family gatherings.
The most obvious benefit of a backyard pond is the amazing view. That sparkling view from the house is another reason people build ponds. A pond has an astounding ability to enhance visual appeal. The eye is drawn naturally to water, the surface of a pond is always changing.
Your backyard pond can offer other monetary benefits as well. If the pond is properly designed by an experienced builder, it will increase the value of your home.
Waterfowl and wildlife are frequent pond visitors. Ponds are a rich habitat for a wide range of creatures. A pond for fish needs to have adequate depth (usually 12’+) over one quarter of the area of the pond. A properly built and managed pond can yield up to a few hundred pounds of fish annually for each acre of surface water.
The pond is there for your immediate gratification whether it is the early morning, before-work swim, the come-home-after-work and pop into the water, and everything else in between. The cabin in the woods takes hours to get to; the boat is a big commitment; and the RV “demands” that you travel for hours and days to somewhere before you get to relax.
The great thing about having your own swimming pond is that it fits your lifestyle exactly as you want it to. Nothing beats your own backyard pool for getting fit or fishing in your free time.
