We are in the process of getting a contractor for an inground pool. My yard is currently fenced in with a 4 ft aluminum fence, only half of it because of HOA restrictions. Luckily the pool will fit within the existing fence. We have four children that all know how to swim and have no concerns with them being within the yard with a pool as we had an intex the past two years. In order to fit the larger inground pool though, we will have to move the trampoline and playset out of the fenced area. We have the option now with new HOA rules to extend our fence so the entire yard is fenced. I know my kids would enjoy going from the pool to the trampoline and playset without going through the gate like they have the past few years....and risking any of my three dogs getting out either. I see a lot of pools with fences just around the pool and am trying to understand why. I'm guessing if they have dogs they must be on electric fences or leashed. At this stage, our fence is mainly for our dogs and pool safety. Does anybody have their entire yard fenced, pool and all, and wish their pool was separate?
