If you have a pool at your property, then you will want to keep any visitors to the property safe from any accidents. One of the most effective ways to do this is to place a fence around the pool. However, just because they are practical, it doesn’t mean they have to be boring. If you are looking for inspiration for your pool fencing, then the following Instagram posts are a good place to start.

Pool Fencing Ideas

1. Stately Design

This fence around the pool is quite high, which makes it a safer choice. However, the trees around the fence add to the overall aesthetic of the pool area. The fence in this photo is made with a wire mesh which means it is fully transparent so it doesn’t block the view of the pool. This particular example is also removable, which is a useful feature if easy access to the pool is needed. Check out these affordable above ground pool ideas if you’re in the market!

2. Small White Picket

The white fence in this example clearly separates the pool from the patio area. This type of design is a good choice when you want different sections of your garden to be clearly defined. The white poles in this example will prevent accidents because the spaces between them are too small for anyone to fall through.

3. Clear Glass

A frameless fence is a great idea when you don’t want anything obstructing the view of the pool. The fence panels themselves will usually be made of a transparent material such as glass or plastic. This type of fence can be quite high maintenance, because you will need to keep the material clean. However, many people believe that it is worth this extra bit of effort because of how good this type of fence looks.

4. Brick Waterfall

This can be described more as a wall than a fence, but it is still an interesting decorative feature. It can be appreciated by those that are in the pool, and those who are relaxing in the garden. It may not be a good choice if you have young children that will be using the pool as it does not go all the way round the outside of the pool, meaning it does not offer full protection from them accidentally falling in.

5. Gated

The mesh on this fence will keep young children away from the pool, while not blocking the view. This type of fencing is a popular choice with families because the locking mechanism on the gate is quite high and also quite difficult for children to work out how to open. The mesh material is also difficult for small children to be able to climb up.

6. Curvy Glass

The curved design of this fence means that it can follow the outline of the pool. This can help save space in the rest of the garden because by following the contours of the pool, you do not lose any extra space. In this example, a frameless fence is used which helps to give the pool and the home a really modern look.

7. More Black Pickets

A simple black fence and gate can bring a touch of simple elegance to your pool area. It is quite understated and so is not too distracting, but it still
provides the safety that you need. These types of fences are usually quite versatile in the way that they can be configured, so you can have it around the pool any way you wish.

8. Glass Paneling

This design makes use of frosted glass to bring some privacy to the pool area. This type of design is popular with homeowners whose garden may be overlooked by neighboring properties, especially if the fence for the garden itself is not that high. This example does not have the frosted glass all the way around the pool, which means that you would still be able to enjoy the view of the garden while you are relaxing in the pool.

9. Natural Wood

This wooden fence is complimented well by the landscaping of the garden. The fact that the pool can still be seen behind the fence adds to the overall effect which has been created. In some ways the plants in front of the fence offer another layer of protection, especially from children. Although there is easy access through the gate, the pool will not seem as accessible to young children.

10. Glass Clips

This fence is attached to the side of the pool, which is something a little different. This can be a good choice if your pool is not built into the ground. The fence only surrounds the pool which means you don’t lose any space in the rest of the garden. It also prevents people from sitting on the edge of the pool and accidentally falling in.

11. Winding Pool Fence

One of the best things about using a metal fence to surround your pool is that they come in a variety of colors. You can choose something which really fits with the overall design of your garden. There is also some flexibility in the shape of the fence so it can follow the outline of your pool. Having a curved fence, like in this example, can add something a little different to your pool area.
