Best Pool Fence Ideas With Pictures of Examples
A beautiful crystal clear swimming pool, at the center of a well landscaped yard, should not have an unattractive pool fence as a distraction.
Unfortunately, there is also the reality of the danger a swimming pool presents, especially when there aren’t safety measures in place. One of the most common and effective ways to increase pool safety is by installing proper pool fencing.
Of course, not everyone is going to like the idea, because how often do you see “attractive” pool fencing? But if there are children involved, safety should always come first.
In fact, a pool fence is important even if you just have friends with children who come to visit. It’s always smart to have pool fencing that follows and exceeds safety standards, and you can do several things to make them look a lot better.
Today’s post will share pictures of some of our favorite pool fence ideas for maintaining a beautiful yard and pool that we’ve learned from installing pool fences for decades.
Pool Fencing Ideas for Structure Types
To help you get a better perspective on choosing a pool fence that will fit with the rest of your landscape, here is a breakdown of the most common options, followed by some suggestions on how to spruce up their appearance.
1. A Perimeter Fence
This is an option that will make use of the fence that separates a section of the yard. In other words, it won’t necessarily be close to the pool, but it will prevent children or pets from entering the pool section of the yard. Keep in mind that height and gate system for this fence has to adhere to the relevant safety code.
2. Interior Pool Fencing
Instead of restricting a section of the yard, direct pool fencing is going focus specifically on the immediate area around the pool.
3. A to B Fence
This type of pool fence connects to pre-existing structures in your yard to create a completely enclosed fence around your pool.
4. Removable Pool Fencing
If convenience is what you are looking for, consider a mobile pool fence. It can be taken away and replaced like you need, giving you more space when hosting guests. At the same time, it provides perfect safety when you put it back.
Pool Fence Ideas for a Beautiful & Safe Solution
It should be noted that not all pool fencing is “boring”. There are some designs that can look great and provide safety, but you might have to shop a little more to find them. And if you don’t find them, try the following tips and ideas.
What better way to enhance the pool fence than with plants and vines? Just by going with a natural approach, you can make the fence fit in with the rest of your yard. Fences with lattice panels are perfect for this, seeing as they accommodate climbers.
If you want to create a classic look for the poolside, consider a tall wood fence. It’s a look that never gets old and it just seems to fit with summer and the nearby pool. Plus, they provide great privacy.
When you start thinking outside the box a little more, you’ll come across iron bars. These allow you to add and connect concrete structures, which can look very modern and stylish.
Vinyl Fence/White Wood Bar
White has a natural way of creating a fresh atmosphere around the pool, which is why you should consider a vinyl or white wood bar fencing approach.
This is going to look very stylish, modern, and will give you a view of what’s going on if the kids are in the pool.
Convenience is the name of the game when you choose a removable pool fence. Increase the space, make it less, or simply take the fence away altogether. Some love the fact that you can install and remove them as the seasons change.
Now let’s look at some real life examples of the above pool fence ideas we just discussed.
