10 Inground & Above Ground Swimming Pool Fencing Ideas

Swimming Pool FenceAnyone will agree that there is nothing worse than having an ugly pool fence obscuring the view of a beautiful sparking in ground or above ground swimming pool. However, I think you’ll also be in agreement when we say that the safety of your family and guests come first. The difficultly is always trying to find a balance between safety and beauty, in other words finding a fence which does the job whilst not spoiling the view of your pool and making it look like an eye sore.

In terms of swimming pool fence ideas there are 3 main options that you really have to choose from:

  • A removable swimming pool fence
  • A full perimeter garden / yard fence
  • An interior fence

The Removable Pool Fence

The removable pool fence is as it suggests, removable, or in other words when you’re not using the pool the fence can be placed around the pool. When you have a party or a gathering then the pool area can be opened up by simply removing the storing the fence. Our guide on removable pool fences provides prices and details on installation and maintenance. The problem with the removable pool fence is that you still have it there most of the time, most of them are simply darn ugly, although we have provided some removable pool fence ideas below.

Perimeter Pool Fence

The idea of the perimeter fence is that you utilise the fencing around your garden or yard area as a safety fence for the swimming pool. As long as it complies by the laws and codes of your state in terms of the typical pool fence regulations, then you’re good to no and no further work may be needed.

The Interior Fence

The interior fence simply surrounds and encloses the pool area only, similar to how a removable pool fence can work.

Ideas and Choices for Pool Fencing

So, based on the above what are your choices? Well, if you’re going for anything other than a removable pool fence then the choices open to you are pretty open-ended. It’s important to research the market and find the right product to fit your budget but first of all you need ideas of what you’re looking for, that’s where we come in.
