Above Ground Pool Fence – Above the ground, pools provide a place to cool off on a hot summer day and are easier to maintain than the options on the floor, plus it costs much less to install. Although the pool is elevated and may be more difficult to access than a traditional pool, the area around the perimeter of the water should still be protected. The installation of a wooden fence is one way to achieve this. These fences can also provide an elegant addition to your backyard pool.
The main purpose of the above ground pool fence is to provide security and privacy. There are several options when it comes to installation near the wood. You can build a very high fence that anchors on the ground just outside of the one that surrounds the pool. You can also build the fence in a large radius that surrounds the pool, so have some ground space inside the fence. If you opt for this, build the fence several feet higher than the pool.
Because your wooden pool fence is outside and exposed to the elements, use treated wood. If the wood is not treated, you can do it yourself by painting it with a sealer. Some types of wood, such as cedar, require less sealer than others, so ask about the exact type used in your fence. You can also add a layer of paint to the pool fence to add a touch of color to your garden.
