Pool Fencing Ideas — How to Make Your Pool Safe and Stylish

Outfitting Your Pool Area

Carefully designing the space will help to make the most of your fence, backyard and pool, creating a stylish outdoor entertaining area.


Lights can enhance your pool area in addition to making it visible at night.

Underwater and surrounding lights will enhance your pool area, making it as impressive at night as it is in the daytime. Submerged LEDs can be used to light up the pool itself and compared to traditional incandescent bulbs are much more reliable, as they don’t get hot or have a filament that could burn out.

Different colored lights can also be used under trees or fencing to create a relaxed night-time ambiance and are perfect for entertaining. Adding lights to your pool area won’t just improve its looks; the added exposure could deter criminal mischief.

Plants and Greenery

Lush landscaping will make your pool area more luxurious.

Landscaping your garden or backyard can make the area look lush and luxurious. Tall trees near your pool can add privacy and aesthetic appeal when lit up at night. If space is at a premium, several potted plants can be a portable way to add greenery.

For those looking for less maintenance, synthetic turf can give the look of grass without the need for upkeep. Synthetic turf, which is easy to install and water resistant, is a low-maintenance landscaping option.

With the right fencing and design ideas your pool area can be as safe as it is stylish.
