Perhaps more important that sticker price is the cost of maintenance. A typical pump for a pool or pond consumes around 1-2 Kilowatts. On average across the USA , 1 kilowatt costs $95/month or $1140/year. 2 kilowatts $190/month or $2280/year. For a natural water system, pumps should run all year except in very cold climates where metabolic rates approach 0 in winter.

Areas planted with the type of wetland plants called for in most swim ponds use much more water via evapotranspiration than straight evaporation does. For a typical euro-style swim pond, we figure ~ 600-800 gallons / day in most non-desert climates - double that in deserts. That is in addition to the straight evaporation of the swim area. Over the growing season this adds up quickly. You will need to calculate the cost of water for your specific situation.

If the electric cost and water are added, it appears conservative to round these into roughly $2,000 / year as an operating expense. Using a short life of 10 years, that is an added $20,000 of operating expense for most of these typical ponds. This illustrates the value of upfront investment in efficient designs.

Also consider most of the plastic seals of these pools come with a 20 year warrantee. The problem is even if you get a refund after 20 years, you still get to deal with the leakage that can add up quickly. Moving all that sand or rock is like starting over in the building process. The soil sealants we use will last centuries barring a major earthquake.

These along with many other reasons are why we design our pools without the need for the plants and if we do use a pump, it runs around $10/month to move much less water in high bio-load waters. The investment in scientific design overcomes the expense of maintenance or a "low price".
