What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Clear Glass PanelsFor this backyard by Apex Landscapes & Pools in Melbourne, Australia, a bamboo hedge and a bluestone-tile wall provide privacy from neighbors. Views of the pool remain unobstructed within the backyard, thanks to a clear glass safety fence. Glass panels anchored by metal clamps — often sold as a safety fence — offer safety or wind barriers for pools and hot tubs without sacrificing views.
Upgrade pool safety measures. If you have a pool or hot tub in your backyard, the best way to prevent accidents is to implement as many layers of safety as possible, including adult supervision, CPR training, safety barriers and door and pool alarms. Make sure to keep your pool and hot tub clean and in good working order with regular inspections, and if you’re looking to add another layer of safety, consider adding a self-closing, self-latching gate at least 4 feet high, to prevent children from jumping or falling in, and place a safety cover on your pool when not in use. The American Red Cross also recommends installing a pool alarm that will go off when anyone enters the pool.These Steps Will Help Keep Kids Safe Around Pools and Spas
It’s hard to imagine this backyard with a wrought iron fence around the pool.
