A man and his father decided they were fed up with the boring patch of grass they called a yard, and decided it was time to change things for the better. What they turned it into, though, is beyond anything anyone could have anticipated…
This was their backyard during the early planning stages, pre-amazing transformation.
Not much to look at, huh? Well, just wait until you see what they do with it.
First, a small bulldozer was brought in to start digging.
Let the excavation begin!
The final idea was finally beginning to take shape after all of the excavating was finished, but it was still a long way from paradise.
A stone walkway was next on the list.
A felt liner was placed along the ground to form the base of the whole project.
Another liner was next on the list. The materials even had to be ordered from Germany! Can you guess what they’re building?
A filtration system was constructed, too.
The rock lining was built by hand with the help of a few friends over the course of eight hours. Talk about back-breaking work!
Water was finally pumped in.
And the water was allowed to spill over the edges to create a flowing, natural pond.
Not too shabby, eh? Well, they’re not finished just yet!
Lights were installed to make it shine, even at night.
It took so long to finish that the seasons even changed!
Watch out, kitty!
By the time spring rolled around, it was time to add the finishing touches.
That meant installing a deck!
Voila! The world’s coolest natural swimming pool was complete!
Now that is a backyard!
What these men built is nothing short of extraordinary. It’s like their own private oasis!
