Building a pool is a huge achievement. 

You’ve saved and budgeted and your beautiful pool is almost ready. Designing your pool can be fun and exciting - and so can designing your swimming pool fence. 

Take a look at some of our favourite pool fencing ideas for inspiration on your pool project. 

Our Favourite Pool Fencing Ideas 

The best pool fences are made by professionals. Your fencing contractor must install barriers that are in accordance with Australian safety standards. Consider safety first. 

After you have chosen a fencing team that you can trust, you can start to consider design and materials. Narrow down your options by asking yourself the following questions: 

  • What kind of climate do you live in? If you live in a coastal area, you might consider choosing non-corrosive, moisture resistant materials. 
  • What is your budget? Some pool fencing ideas will cost you more than others. 
  • What kind of style do you like? For example, if you have a contemporary home, you might consider a contemporary design. If you have a country english style yard, the fence you choose can compliment it. 
  • Do you want a custom design? 
  • Do you have pets? Some fences are better at dealing with pets than others. 

Once you have answered these questions, you should have a clearer idea of which styles appeal to you. You can always talk through these questions with your contractor and they will make a recommendation.

Custom Design Fencing

Sometimes, the best ideas are a little bit outside the box. Like this random-height, spotted gum sleeper fence. Isn’t it gorgeous? 

The height and width between each post is completely compliant with pool safety barrier laws in Australia and was designed and installed by Mel and Clinton Ford from Jim’s Fencing in Leopold. 

With a custom design pool fence, the options are endless.

Frameless Pool Fencing 

Frameless glass pool fencing is one of the most popular modern fencing designs.

Got a pool with a view? Make it a hero with a sleek fence that you can see through. Although they look fragile, glass fences are actually shatterproof, making them very safe. 

Glass fences are a little more expensive than your average fence but the final result is priceless. If you have room in your budget, we highly recommend a frameless fence. 

Traditional and Tubular

If you want a cost-effective fencing solution that is corrosion and moisture resistant, you should consider a tubular pool fence. Powder coated steel pickets will keep children, pets, and rust away. There are a range of colour options and designs available. 

Tubular fences are a great option if you want your pool to be the feature of your yard. This sort of fence won’t stand out, but it will compliment the rest of your space.
