I'm having a sunken above ground pool installed next week. I'm on a very tight budget but i'd like to have a fence around the pool to prevent kids from getting in. It doesn't necessarily have to be 4' high, so i'm looking for some ideas. I like the black aluminum fencing but does not fit in my budget.
Right now i'm probably going with black chainlink, but would like something a little better looking. I could build wood planters with tall grasses inside, and I could maybe make a few sections the black metal fence. Has anyone seen wood planters around a pool? I thought about no fence and just having tall grasses as a barrier, but I live in a cold climate so the grasses won't last all year.
Anybody have any budget friendly fence/ barrier ideas?
