HELP, Need help with landscape problem !
March 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This old pool is 20 x 40. Right now Red eared slider turtles are using it for their home. How can I turn it into a natural fish/turtle pond without it looking like a pool ? Or what are your ideas that I should do with it? The house will be built on top of that dirt pad so this is in the backyard. We have a real pond behind the little shed.

I would recommend getting a landscape architect on board. You have a pretty amazing piece of property and they could help you master plan the site. As your pool sits now, it represents a pretty big liability. I would tear it out and fill it in.

Change the pool edging and incorporate more landscape design elements. I agree with hiring an landscape architect given the size of the project.
