Choosing the Right Material for Your Pool Fencing

Which pool fencing material will keep people safe while also enhancing the look of your landscaping?

When it comes to fencing in your pool, you have a few options for fencing materials. All of them look different and provide individual aesthetics for your outdoor area. Your pool is undoubtedly the pièce de résistance of your outdoor space, and you want your fence to maintain that appeal. Which pool fencing material will keep people safe while also enhancing the look of your landscaping?

Poolside PVC

PVC is a low-cost fencing material that many homeowners choose for their pools. PVC is durable, reliable, and strong. It can get wet without sustaining any damage. PVC is also fairly versatile in terms of style and height. Before you choose your fencing, check your local laws to see if your state or county has a specific height for pool fences. If you like the classic picket look, PVC can be designed into picket-style posts that will give your landscaping a traditional look without breaking the bank.

Ornamental Aluminum for Your Oasis

Similar to PVC, aluminum is a very durable and versatile fencing material that is great for pools. In fact, ornamental aluminum fencing is one of the most popular owners for people with residential pools. Aluminum fencing offers elegance and style that many other fencing materials cannot. With aluminum, your fencing will also blend into your landscaping more easily. Other than being rather inconspicuous, aluminum is also a very low maintenance material, so you won’t have to spend any time fixing or touching up the aluminum. While you’re looking up your local pool fencing laws, be sure that you’re also installing a proper gate with your aluminum fence.

Wood by the Water

If your home already has wooden fencing, you might want to keep things simple and also incorporate wooden fencing into your pool area. Wood is a great, long-lasting material that comes in a wide variety of styles. If you’re looking to add more privacy to your pool, wood is an excellent option for a poolside privacy fence. If you want to add different colors and natural elements to your pool area, wood fencing can be easily painted or stained to match your style.
