Swimming Pools

Where I live swimming pools are everywhere. How many GW members have incorporated swimming pools in their Japanese gardens? If so, how do you keep chlorine from killing the plants?

RE: Swimming Pools

Chlorinated pools work as long as there is an impervious liner and splashing is not a huge problem. I have had waterfalls with chlorinated water running near wood fern, maples, and juniper with no ill effects.

Continued splashing without leaching would be a problem.

RE: Swimming Pools

I would think that splashing is always present in a swimming pool, and I don't know if it should be called "a problem." After all, that's what swimming pools are for.

RE: Swimming Pools

Go for it Kieth the swimming pool sounds really appropriate, maybe you could even incorporate a diving board in the style of a torii or even a church steeple?

RE: Swimming Pools

I just installed above ground swimming pool 33'round.Is it a good idea to backfill low spots and surrond entire pool with pea gravel?
