Naturallly cleaned "pool" -- water is pulled from the bottom of the main pool and filters out through pipes under the planted edge. The plants feed on the nutrients in the water and clean water flows back into the pond. I've done this with every pond i have ever built.

Swimpond Landscape Design - this is a really cool idea for naturally filtered swimming pools. They can convert already existing pools and make them into a clean mountain swimming hole.
