The owner of this home approached Kane Brothers with an inspiring challenge: create a chemical-free swimming environment for him and his family that would allow him to swim with his children who suffered from severe skin conditions.

Maintaining the sanitary pristine water quality of a chemical-free natural swimming pool, while adding the demands of a ecological habitat, required a custom pond design that utilized an elaborate filtration system. Largely utilizing biological methods to reinforce the designed ecosystem, this natural swimming pool offers aesthetics and utility beyond a standard pool without any chemicals, harmful additives, or irritants.

The project was completed in two phases – the first including the pond and two cascading waterfalls, and the second to incorporate a large meandering stream throughout the landscape. Over 100 tons of boulders were used throughout the feature. The 90-foot stream originates just off the master bedroom terrace, such that the sound of flowing water can soothe the homeowners to sleep.
