When the pool is the main attraction, it’s easy to take the other elements of a great pool area for granted. But when it comes to overall look and function, the pool fencing has a huge impact. Not only is it a legal requirement – it’s also the first thing you see when you look at the pool, which is the first thing you see when you look at the yard. In this article, we’re going to explore four pool fencing ideas to give you inspiration for when you redesign your pool or get one installed for summer.
Pool fencing ideas
Glass pool fence
If your pool is the jewel of the yard, go for a fence that let’s its beauty shine through! Glass pool fencing is popular because it’s climb-proof, impact-resistant and durable, but doesn’t impede the view of your pool’s sparkling waters and striking, landscaped surrounds. While there may be some foggy mornings and limescale buildup, investing in a quality cleaning solution will ensure glass fencing stays low-maintenance while looking sleek and sophisticated.
Just be sure to choose tough, tempered glass for your pool fence and provide a glazing certificate to pass state compliance certification – low quality glass can crack and crumble in extreme weather.
Steel pole pool fence
Steel pole fencing is having a moment. It’s an up-and-coming trend in the pool landscaping world, and it’s easy to see why. Where straight, black steel poles used to be the only option, you can now get curved, shaped and coloured poles to spice up the design while maintaining a minimalist edge.
Laser-cut screen pool fence
Want a pool fence but not keen on something off the shelf? Customise your own with laser-cut screen fencing. A laser-cut screen fence is the perfect choice for those who want to create an entirely unique look for their pool area.
You can choose almost any design and have it printed to suit the requirements under the Australian Pool Safety standards.
Hardwood posts pool fence
If you prefer a more organic, earthy look, a hardwood post fence. Australian hardwoods like Jarrah, Beech and Ironbark make attractive and durable fencing materials that blend perfectly with the rest of your yard.
