Does anyone have one of those exercise swim pools...

We have a pool thats had the bun.
We've had our fun.
And now we think the pool is done.
The ancient pool was in the sun
And I am eyeing it to grow a tonne
Of plants that need a bit more ....sun.

Sorry about the repeated word.

Its also falling down a huge hill. So and we are planning to convert it to a fish pond at the shallow end and to fill the rest with the busted up concrete from the deck, then soil, and take the old flat area to the south and put decks and an exercise pool. Does anyone have those incorporated in a garden and if so whats your opinion of it?

Im going to miss weeding and swiming alternatively, but we hardly use it now.

I don't have a pool but I don't see why you couldn't incorporate one into the garden.
Are you planning to have it run along the house? I would leave a wider deck on that side and then a narrower deck all the way around for maintenace and then terrace down the hill. Lots of work and $ but soooo much potential!
