Choosing the right fence to surround your backyard swimming pool can be a challenge. Of course, you want to keep children and pets from accidentally falling into the water, but you probably also want to enjoy the beautiful view of your pool while you are sitting in the house or on the patio. An ornamental fence allows you to do both.
What is Ornamental Fencing?
Available in both aluminum and steel, ornamental fencing is an open-slatted fence, with panels finished with a powder coating that fuses color to the metal which helps the paint to look newer longer. There are a number of benefits to choosing an ornamental fence for enclosing your pool
Advantages to Having Ornamental Fence Surrounding your Swimming Pool
1. Safety and Security
While wooden and chain link fences can be easily climbed or cut, an ornamental fence is difficult to scale and virtually impossible to cut through. For an extra degree of security, you can top each post with a decorative, yet spear-like finial. These not only look attractive, but provide an additional deterrent to thieves or vandals.
An ornamental fence offers sleek, symmetrical lines that adapt well to almost any landscaping or architectural style. In addition, this type of fencing comes in a number of different colors: everything from traditional black or gray to the more modern hunter green or brown.
3. Outdoor Enjoyment
Unlike solid vinyl or wooden panels, an ornamental fence allows you to see your pool from the outside of the fence. You’ve spent a lot of time, effort, and money creating your water oasis; it’s a shame to only be able to enjoy it in the summer when you’re ready for a swim. This type of fencing also makes it easier to supervise children playing in the pool while you’re sitting on the patio or other area outside the fence.
Yet another advantage to choosing ornamental fencing to surround your swimming pool area is the durability. A good, properly-installed aluminum or steel fence will last for two decades or more.
5. Low Maintenance
An ornamental fence is very easy to take care of. Since the paint is fused to the metal with a powder coating, this type of fencing never needs to be re-painted or re-stained like wooden or iron fencing. All you need to do to keep your aluminum or steel fence looking its best is to brush off any stubborn dirt and spray the fence with a garden hose to keep it looking new.
