I still feel the tingle of unwrapping Natural Swimming Pools A Guide for Building Michael had thrown me a lifeline now, at last, I had real information. Pool design, pumps, water quality, planting it was all there Every DIY natural swimming pool builder needs this book. David Pagan Butler, DIY builder, Norfolk This book is without doubt the best source of information in print on natural swimming pools and how they are builtIt contains all the information needed to build a pool, clearly and logically laid out. The text is dotted with diagrams, drawings and checklists which all serve to clarify. The book is also packed with photographs that not only illustrate the possibilities but also inspire. Christian Gaze, DIY builder, France This guide to building is a welcome and natural sequel to Littlewoods earlier title Natural Swimming Pools Inspiration for Harmony with Nature. For any landscape architect, designer or contractor, this book is a must. Littlewood is known for having a keen eye for detail and for his easy way of expressing himself clearly and concisely in print. - Robin Williams, VMM,. FAPLD, FSGD Garden Designer June 2008 There isnt another book in print, which provides the reader with such an in-depth view and explanation of all the various aspects of designing and building a natural swimming pool. Michael Littlewood has provided us with a highly detailed book, summarizing his many years of experience as a natural landscape architect, allowing us into his extensive research and knowledge about natural swimming pool technology. - Craig Eldridge Registered Landscape Architect Australian Institute of Landscape Architects I especially liked that this book shows the reader how this system works with a multitude of options for the designer. It is an extension of Littlewoods earlier book, Natural Swimming Pools, which introduced and illustrated this concept with excellent photographs of what has already been done in Europe. It is recommended that one read this book first for the best understanding of the complete process. In Natural Swimming Pools: A Guide for Building, Littlewood concentrates on the construction and technical matters. There are examples of complete new construction in many different styles, as well as details for the conversion of existing swimming pools. As a designer, this aspect is very attractive, because he shows you how to make specific choices and demonstrates the flexibility you have through careful planning. While I know the price tag is high, this book is completely worth the investment, and could ultimately save many thousands of unneeded mistakes. - Samuel L Salsbury, FAPLD Landscape Designer For more information on Natural Swimming Pools, read Michael Littlewood's informative article - clik the link below.
