How to fence a Natural Pool
A common question we get asked is how to incorporate fencing in a natural pool design. Here are a few strategies to consider:
If you have little kids at home, especially those not able to swim yet, you may want to not only provide safety fencing around the yard, but also between the pool and your home. This removable, black mesh fencing can be installed on a deck or patio and sections of it can easily be removed to access the water. As a bonus, it's easy to see through, so it won't spoil views of your natural pool!
If you want the fencing around your natural pool to disappear, consider this readily available black metal panel fencing. With landscaping in front of it, including the water plants in your natural pool, this fencing option blends in easily with the natural landscape.
Another strategy to consider is to incorporate the fence into the overall design aesthetic, making it a feature rather than something you just want to disguise. In this concept, the modern Japanese-inspired wood fence matches the look of the pergola, pier and natural pool. Wooden bamboo planter boxes along both sides of the yard provide further privacy from neighbors and work with the landscaping to emphasize the Japanese garden influence.
If you have a large natural pool and small kids who you may want to separate from the natural pool at times, consider fencing around the door to your home rather than around the pool itself. In this design, we divided the yard into zones and created a playground space by the door with the natural pool beyond, safely outside of the short wood and hogwire fence.
Another option is to put a barrier just around the house patio or deck. A glass fence with gate is a great way to create a safe barrier for kids while preserving views of the natural pool.

The harder components to estimate are the fence materials since precise measurements become challenging over distances of tens and hundreds of feet. Make sure to save your receipts so you can, if necessary, return any unused posts. Vertical posts are required for board/rail, barbed wire, and electric fence, which are typically spaced every 8 to 10 feet. (boards, barbed wire, electric wire). In order to account for how many horizontal strands or boards you will have, multiply the required amount of horizontal materials by their length. To ensure you have enough barbed wire, double the length of your fence by three, for instance, if you plan to use three strands.
