Create a Safe and Relaxing Backyard Pool Area

New fence installation

Is it important for you to spend time outside in your yard? If so, you are among 75% of people in the United States that also believe it’s important, according to a recent Harris Poll survey conducted on behalf of the National Association of Landscape Professionals.

It’s also likely you believe your yard should be well-maintained. The above Harris poll survey also found that 90% of the individuals with a yard also believe the same way.

If you’re not happy with the current state of your yard, have you considered adding landscaping? You may also be interested in building a new deck. If you have a swimming pool or pond in your backyard, it would be a good idea to have a new fence built.

When you have children, building a fence around your pool is particularly important to protect them from drowning. Furthermore, if there are other children in the neighborhood, including their playmates, you want to prevent them from being at-risk as well.

When you contact a fence contractor, they will likely recommend a four-sided isolation fence to surround your pool area. This type of fencing solution, which should be at least four-feet high, will separate the pool from both your house as well as your yard.

Four-sided fences have been shown to reduce the risk of a child drowning 83%. A three-sided property-line fence has not been shown to be as effective.

When you’re building a new fence, your contractor will be able to recommend fencing materials. Vinyl fencing is one option that you may be interested in because it’s non-toxic. This means that it hasn’t been treated with harmful or otherwise hazardous chemicals.

Vinyl fencing materials are available in both virgin and recycled vinyl. When you contact a fence contractor, they can provide you with more information on the difference between these two types of vinyl and which might be best for your yard.

Another benefit of choosing vinyl fencing materials rather than wood, is that vinyl is believed to be stronger and more flexible. Some manufacturers have claimed that vinyl is five-time stronger than wood and four-times more flexible.

Once you have new fencing installed around your pool, you will be able to relax and enjoy your yard even more. If you don’t have a pool in your backyard, you may still be interested in having a new fence built to create separate areas in your backyard.
