Nothing can add the much needed flair of freshness and comfort to your life in those scorching heats of summer than some chilling time in the cold and soothing waters of a swimming pool. Of course, one can’t head out for swimming every time, and this makes it no less than a boon to have a pool just a few feet away from your doorstep.
However, getting a swimming pool built in your backyard is often a deal of heaps and heaps of dollars, unless you put some creativity, construction skills and patience to incredible use and build a DIY Swimming Pool in your space.

#3 Deep Pallet Wood Pool
Simply using the pallets to create the walls of the pool, he only had to place some at the basis, and some others on the perimeter cut to size, keeping the original shape of the pallets and fixing them very well together, since the weight of the water is so strong. Next the entire surface has been covered with a large single plastic layer, in order to avoid any leakage of water.

#4 Shipping Container Pool
If you can get your hands on a shipping container you might be able to pull off one of the coolest swimming pools I have seen on the internet for a very long time. The only issue I forsee with this is that the shipping container may rust, but rust can be fixed and painted.

#5 A Natural Swimming Pool
Rather than being concrete and mass-manufactured tile, a natural pool can be a beautiful edition to any landscape. By using gravel stone and clay instead of concrete, and natural aquatic plants in place of harsh chemicals, natural pools can not only be functional and fun, but also environmentally friendly.
