How a redditor built a swimming pond in his yard
One man and his father decided they were fed up with the boring ol’ patch of grass that they called a backyard, and thought it was time to change that. Why not a pool?!
This is what the yard looked like before they started working
A Redditor’s dad decided he wanted to build a swimming pond for his family with some help from his two kids
He started with an excavator.
There was a lot of digging to be done!
This honestly looks kind of fun.
Constructing the sides.
Starting to take shape!
Sides are finished.
Everyone helped out.
After some long, long hours, the digging was finally complete.
Then it was time to add layers of felt and plastic to the bottom of the pond.
Layering more plastic.
Another view of the plastic layers.
These barrels were used for circulating water through the filtration system.
Decorative stones were also added to the deepest part.
Can you imagine how hard this must’ve been?
After that, they finally finished adding rocks and a base layer of stone.
The end was in sight!
Adding the final touches.
Dad also went ahead and installed some lights for night swimming!
They planned to enclose the area with a custom patio.
The custom patio framing is almost complete.
I mean, look at that view!
This is seriously stunning
After seeing this, it’s hard to be satisfied with my painfully average backyard.
The coolest part about this project isn’t the finished product (although it is beautiful). The dad who led the way works in IT and his son is a business student, which means that they certainly weren’t experts in this field before they started!
