These are so neat. I wonder what the smallest size would be and how warm the water would get in places like Tennessee/Arkansas/Missouri areas.

So pretty!

Depends on your strategy for "natural" - refresh the water with collected water or kept clean with biological/mechanical methods. In warmer climes a deeper/shaded area is almost necessary to keep the water cool especially if there is a nutrient load, another way to keep funky growth down is to have an aerator/water fall operated with a windmill. Do your research - one size is not going to fit all; every pond/pool is going to be different.

Such a nice post. I think it will be a nice combination with a greenhouse. Im looking forward to combine my newly bought greenhouse from Hobbydrivhuse with a natural swimming pool beside it.
