Does this comply with new fencing laws? - Hi. Does the above ground height and gate at the base of the stairs mean this complies with NSW/Australian fencing laws? Without having an ugly boring pool fence?

What is the height of the pool from ground level? It is 1.2mt for safety regs? A very clever design!

It is over 1.2m. With the new fencing laws this will now require a fence to be compliant.

There is a gate at the bottom. The stairs take you up to the spa and pool.

Does this do away with the need for fencing or is there fencing beyond the photo?

We design the pool size to fit the outdoor space it is going into. We have designed small plunge pools in courtyards in the inner city and larger pools in more substantial gardens. It depends on the size of your backyard and keeping everything in proportion.

No it is not a container pool. It was poured on site.

Thanks for your comment. You should allow a budget of $80,000 to $150,000 to build a pool inclusive of all equipment, fencing etc.

Our clients do not like us to disclose prices. For a pool you should budget anywhere from $80,000 to $200,000 or more for completion. This needs to cover all aspects of the pool - decking, pool equipment, fencing, tiling, lighting etc.

It is Slender Weaver and no it will not damage the pool. The bamboo is contained in the garden bed and we use root barrier with all garden beds.

Probably best to engage a carpenter to review or pop along to your hardware shop to discuss some options. It is difficult for us to comment without seeing the structure. Perhaps you could load a photo for us??

Love this design - what is the overall weather in your area? - Just curious if you have winter and if the pool can be covered up for cold seasonal weather and the tub covered at night?

The pool is not covered. Our Winters are very mild - in Sydney the lowest the temperature falls is about 10 degrees. Not many people put a cover on their pool. The main reason some clients do if the pool is shadowed by trees to minimise cleaning.
