Blue skies, lots of sun and your own pool – let the bathing season begin!
The pool bridle fulfills important functions and is a must!
Having your own swimming pool in the garden is the best prerequisite for endless bathing fun in summer. But this is only true if you are not worried about your safety and that of your loved ones. A pool fence can solve a large part of these concerns. It can delimit and shield the entire area around the garden pool. For example, if you have a high fence of green shrubs or trees around the pool, then this can provide the perfect privacy screen. Curious looks from the neighbors and a weak wind can’t get in. In addition, such a “green wall” can also reduce the noise level and thus also serve as noise protection.
With a green pool fence you combine the aesthetic function with good privacy protection…
…. And can sunbathe undisturbed for hours and then swim in the lukewarm water.
Yes, but if you have young children and/or pets then safety comes before aesthetics. Then you absolutely have to fence your pool! A permanently installed pool fence that offers safety and stability first and foremost would be best. It must be at least 1.10 m high so that the children cannot climb over it. For safety reasons, there are no crossbars or similar “climbing aids” required, just like oversized meshes that make it easier to climb over the fence. Don’t forget, children are in most cases very creative and can easily overcome safety fences and other safety precautions at the garden pool. That’s why we want to give you an extra tip:
Extra tip: Despite possible safety measures, you must never leave your little ones unattended, not only when swimming and splashing around in the pool, but also when romping around the pool!
Please never let your children play in the pool unsupervised.
What materials can a pool fence be made of?
A pool fence is built around the pool and it has to fulfill purely aesthetic functions. It must fit properly into the overall design concept of your outdoor area and correspond to the architectural style of the house. No less important is its practical function, namely to separate and protect the water area in the garden. When it comes to suitable materials for garden pool fences, there are a few cheap options available to you. From a simple wire mesh fence to a wooden fence to an elegant Plexiglas fence, everything would be possible and easy to install. A door is also a must, as it blocks access to the water and keeps uninvited guests in.

Plexiglas pool fence
Plexiglas pool fences have been very popular for years. On the one hand, they seamlessly fit into any garden landscape, on the other hand, they perfectly protect the swimming or paddling pool. Their look also varies from framed to semi-framed to frameless. The plexiglass used is unbreakable and has no gaps, so that children cannot climb over such a fence at all. However, its big advantage is that it is totally transparent and you always have a good view of what is happening in or around the pool.

2) Build a wooden fence around the pool
Traditionally, the garden pool is fenced off with wooden posts. A picket fence is stable and gives the entire garden landscape a classic look. However, wood is not the most suitable material for a pool fence, as it requires regular maintenance. Despite this, it is much more affordable than other options. For example as a metal fence, which is very durable but requires a lot of maintenance. In addition, the metal can hardly be combined with water. But you decide!
