How This Man Turned Undesirable Land Into A Natural Pool

Ever wished you had a super cute, swimmable backyard pond that doubled as a wildlife haven? David Pagan Butler did, so he went ahead and created one (see below).

Thankfully, he also shared the process and beautiful results on YouTube for the rest of us to enjoy. Since then, his channel has shared over 150 videos with tips and info for anyone who wants to create their own organic backyard pool.

This idea has been implemented all over the world, with varying degrees of success. What seems to help reduce maintenance needs is proper understanding of the local land and natural systems, and planning ahead to make sure the pool is built in a way that optimizes natural cleaning and hygienic systems.
