Hi! We're just in the very early planning stages for a small inground pool we might begin work on next year. Saw this photo during a backyard landscaping search, and my wife wanted to head out then and there with a shovel: (A friend just finished his own rather larger AG pool, but buried, and the weather's really hot.)
This came up while talking about water features for our backyard, so I'm wondering: Has anybody tried to integrate an inground pool into a water garden? I'm thinking 4-6 feet of water lilies around the pool, with access by stepping stones.
