OK, so this fence doesn’t provide much privacy, but it does create a protective barrier around the pool from curious little ones. Made from bubbled acrylic balls, the fence lends an unexpected sophisticated appeal.

“You know the usual barriers well — the ones made of wood, brick, vinyl and chain link — but now it’s time to meet their more alternative friends.” — Matthew AnkenyA lot of us get into a rut when trying to imagine fence designs, and wind up settling for the same-old, same-old. These vertical gardens, sandblasted glass panels lit with LEDs and acrylic posts full of bubbles revved up my imagination. Check out all 12 alternatives Ankeny has curated for us.

Open fencing lends itself to a wide range of materials and is downright playful here, with bubble-infused acrylic poles echoing the pool area they surround.

Here, Randy Thueme created an artful second line of defense with acrylic bubble rods. These support the main, code-compliant barrier of an automatic pool cover. Pros of fence barriers: Fences don’t need to be taken down to use your pool and put back up after you’re done. Once they’re up, you just walk through the gate. Installation usually takes only one day. Cons: They can cut into valuable space in yards and pool decks. “Fences work better for large back yards,” Hauge says. Some people find them aesthetically unpleasing because they can block views to surrounding landscaping.Cost: Fences cost $1,500 to $2,500, depending on size and material.
