The Natural Pool offers clean, chemical free swimming by combining a swimming area and a shallow planted water region - an area given over to aquatic plants which not only oxygenate the water but along with micro-organisms, act as living filters and organic cleansers, naturally and continually filtering the water through their root system.
These 2 areas are separated by a submerged barrier wall but the water still flows between the 2 regions. There is no need for chlorine or any harsh chemicals only the addition of a filter and circulation pump system.

I've just taken this information direct from Rebecca's Art and Design Blog as it says pretty much what we need to know!
"This is a design that we have been working on and off for the last three months. We wanted to do an outdoor table, purely because we like this timber called Vitex. Vitex is directly marketed against other hardwood timbers such as Kwila as is comes from a sustainable source.
I like it as it ages gracefully in the elements and ends up a beautiful silver tone and refrains from giving you splinters. The design itself uses stainless steel hinges allowing the pieces to be folded down compacted for storage. The Vitex dose have a wonderful hard quality to it and has a life expectancy of approximately 40 years, mainly used in decking we look forward to using this ecological product more and more."

A group of four Lincoln University students have taken on the huge mission of creating an installation at the up and coming Ellerslie Flower Show. The blog is in its very early stages but should be an interesting one to keep an eye on. Good luck to the Four Play team!
