Benefits of Hugelkultur: -Full of slowly decomposing organic matter -Full of nutrients. -Builds fertility over time. -The rotting wood is a massive sponge for water (read that: very little or sometimes no irrigation needed). -Heat from the decomposing wood helps create a warmer microclimate -It will last for YEARS! -As the bed ages, it will slowly shrink further and further down to the ground.
natural pool plans
Plants instead of chemicals -- How many pounds of chemicals go into a typical swimming pool? Plants: A range of aquatic plants are used -- submerged (oxygenators), floating, shallow marginals, deep marginals, bog/marsh and waterside species. Whenever possible, it is best to use indigenous plants. Some examples of typical water plants: cattails, bulrushes, sedges, duckweed and water lilies.
Beautiful natural pool
I'm dreaming on this one... Natural Pools or Natural Swimming Pools, let nature clean the pool. Chemical free, plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water's surface. The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regenerations zone and back into the swimming area.
