For now, I wonder if we can use the yard somehow the other 9 months, and if there is a better lower maintenance way to keep it clean. I wish I had one of those natural ponds... has anyone tried the saltwater pool thing? I don't know much about it.

Another question is what is the cleanest/ lowest impact way to maintain a swimming pool?

I'd like a greenhouse, but the plans I have found are for cement pools and ours is a vinyl liner in earth/sand. Also, the fact that the pool is on the north side of the house puts a damper on things but it could still be ok, it's not right up against the house.
There is a great cedar fence around the poolyard, so I don't want to bring in heavy equipment in and knock down the fence trying to fill in the pool.
I'm looking for a low-impact solution that will not effect the house's foundation and will not have water standing. Even a little pond makes the house diffucult to insure, and insurance cost is driving the removal of the pool. I'd like the space to be useful. Is a simple greenhouse design possible? If we just fill it in, what could we fill it in with and how?
I'm still keeping the cover on for tadpole season
Tick check! Okay, I guess that was just an itch. Oh wait! Just a tiny ad:
