Swimming in Private

Up where I live now, if you have a pool, or any type of open water area it must be surrounded by pool fencing. It makes sense in order to keep anyone from climbing in and drowning even if you have an above ground pool. A good fence around a pool is also attractive and gives you extra privacy in urban areas. Pool enclosures come in many different styles and setups. I prefer wood look fencing and you can even get a traditional fence look on an above ground pool. Another extra advantage of the wood look fencing is that the posts are bigger than iron fencing so you can attach lights on top for those late night swims. You don't even need electricity for the lights if you use solar lights. They aren't as strong as electric lights, but they give the pool area a nice warm glow and plenty of light for taking a midnight swim.
