3 Popular Pool Fence Designs to Meet Every Need  

The best pool fence differs based on the style you like and what you need. Some homeowners like to match the color and style of their fence to their deck railings or the trim on their house. Other homeowners make their choice based on needing backyard privacy or because their budget is almost entirely spent on their pool project.

Whatever your reason for picking the pool fence you want, we have enough great pool fence designs that everyone can have exactly what they’re looking for – here are our favorite 3 to choose from:


Privacy on a Budget: Vinyl Privacy Fence

One of the reasons vinyl fences are so popular is that they match almost anything. From a stylistic standpoint, the clean white vinyl makes a nice accent against a variety of vinyl siding colors. In a lot of ways, vinyl fences are the white picket fence of the 21st century – they’re everywhere and everyone loves them.

From a practical purpose, these tall vinyl fences are a standout option for ensuring your backyard stays private. With six-foot tall panels and no gaps or spaces in the design, they provide complete privacy from even the nosiest of neighbors. Plus, compared to the other two pool fence options, these come in at the most budget friendly price. The style and privacy options make this the best pool fence style for many homeowners.

Sleek Style with a View: Aluminum Fence 

If your nearest neighbors aren’t anywhere close to your home, you probably don’t need a privacy fence. In fact, the last thing you may want to do is block out your amazing rural view. If that sounds like your backyard, you may want to consider a sleek aluminum fence. As a contrast to vinyl privacy panels, aluminum fence pickets are slim and spaced far enough apart to leave your beautiful view front and center. For some homeowners, these aluminum fence advantages make it the in-demand pool fence design.

While black may be the most popular aluminum fencing color, you have several beautiful powder-coated hues to choose from. Their style is similarly versatile as well, giving homeowners the option to select the finials, posts, and more.

Rustic Style & Unbeatable Seclusion: Cedar Shadow Box Fence

The tall wooden panels provide you all of the seclusion of our vinyl option, paired with a totally unique style. For homeowners that love the look of gorgeous cedar wood and need total privacy, this can absolutely be the best pool fence on the market.

There’s no question that wooden fences are absolutely gorgeous – however, they do require more maintenance than their aluminum and vinyl counterparts. While aluminum and vinyl pool fences are fairly maintenance free, wooden options will require yearly maintenance to keep mold at bay – and to keep their color looking sharp.

All three of these pool fences can provide you years of reliable safety and enhance your backyard style. Finding the best pool fence is a matter of selecting the option that meets your needs and your style, while satisfying your budget requirements, too.
