Rec Swimming Pond

Traditional swimming pools have their advantages but maintaining them can be exhausting for many homeowners. Whether its endless amounts of chlorine, or replacing the liner for the second time, maintaining a swimming pool can often feel like a daunting task.

If you feel that way about your pool, then we’ve got good news for you! Recreational ponds can provide the same level of enjoyment as a traditional swimming pool – and then some!

Some people refer to recreational ponds as ‘natural swimming pools’ as they provide all the fun of a swimming pool, along with the natural beauty of a pond or lake. Unlike swimming pools, a recreational pond is filtered naturally – working with Mother Nature, not against her! Using a unique constructed wetland filter and intake bay system, Materra Waterscapes is able to create recreational ponds that are both beautiful and low-maintenance!

Benefits of a Recreational Pond

There are no chemicals required! Along with that, there are many benefits to choosing a recreation style pond over a traditional swimming pool, including: 

  • Little Maintenance: Pond liners don’t require replacing, unlike pool liners (and replacing pool liners can be quite costly!)
  • Attractive Addition: Rec ponds blend seamlessly into the environment; they are a beautiful, natural addition to your landscape that can run through the winter
  • Safe For Animals: Rec ponds are safe for pets and wildlife (no chemicals in the water) 
  • Great For Kids: They are perfect for families with kids! Rec ponds provide endless amounts of entertainment for children (and parents too!)
  • Customization: There are many custom options available such as rock formations, waterfalls, and yes – you can even add fish to your rec pond!

As recreational ponds become more and more popular, many homeowners are considering choosing a recreation pond instead of a pool. As you can see from the list above, there are many reasons to choose a recreational pond! Call us for more details about these unique systems!
