7 Reasons to Put a Fence Around Your Pool

If you have a pool in your backyard, there are many reasons why you should put some fencing around it. Here are the top seven, brought to you by the experts at Fence Consultants of West Michigan:

  1. It’s the law. In Michigan, all backyard pools must be surrounded by a four-foot-tall wall, fence, or other protective barrier. The fencing should separate the yard and the house from the pool itself.
  2. It keeps everyone safe. Small children, pets, or anyone who doesn’t know how to swim will benefit from the fence around your pool.
  3. It keeps pets and small children enclosed. In addition to providing safety from the pool itself, fencing ensures furry friends and kiddos stay within a designated area while under your supervision.
  4. It keeps critters out. Wildlife might be drawn to the giant water source behind your house, but fencing will help deter most of them, helping to keep your pool clean.
  5. It can add privacy. Depending on how your pool and backyard are situated, adding a fence can prevent neighbors from being able to view the area.
  6. It could bring you insurance savings. Some insurance providers offer a discount on homeowner’s insurance post fence installation.
  7. It can add some nice aesthetics to your outdoor space. Aluminum fencing offers a combination of durability, strength, and a clean appearance, making it the perfect choice for both safety and style. Plus, its powder-coated finish — which is available in several different colors and finishes — means you’re sure to find a design that will complement your backyard.
