Croydon Recreation Pond

In 2021 we were approached to convert a large and under-used  backyard (chlorine) swimming pool into a natural recreation pond and thriving ecosystem. The result is a well-used and loved, all natural recreation pond of stunning blue!

The pond maintains clarity and crystal blue waters year round with less maintenance than a standard chlorine pool, and is home to a school of native Silver Perch fish, fresh water muscles, aquatic plants, and many native frogs.

The clients use this space daily, whether it’s for a Summer dip, a morning coffee on the deck, or to relax on the beach!

This stunning view can also be enjoyed from their kitchen and living room window!
