I don't have specific details yet but we would like to build a swimming pool on a newly aquired 4 acre property and we like the idea of a more natural type of pool (no chlorine). We also want to grow some crops and harvest rain water and water from a small creek running through our property. I can't see why a natural swimming pool and a rainwater harvesting garden / system cannot be combined into one area.
How can we clear up green pool water after adding bog plants and lillies?
