Barriers Surrounding Your Inground Pool
There is nothing quite like having access to a gorgeous, refreshing, indulgent inground pool on a hot summer day. Laying around the pool deck, sipping lemonade, and occasionally taking a dip is practically the definition of luxury!
However, luxuriousness can take a quick turn if you attempt to skirt around certain safety codes that protect children and animals, such as barriers. A barrier is required around a pool to assure that unsuspecting children cannot wander into your backyard and accidentally fall into the pool. There are usually special instructions regarding how a barrier is to attach to your home, the maximum distance they're allowed to be installed away from your pool, and how openings, doors, and locks are to operate.
A barrier can usually mean any type of boundary that separates your pool from everyone else. Barriers can include (but are not limited to) chain link fences, wooden fences, picket fences, thick shrubbery and walls.
A barrier does not have to be aesthetically displeasing. On the contrary, some innovative landscaping that involves a variety of fencing, storage nooks, and shrubbery that will add dimension and variety to your backyard.
In the end, the most important thing is that your backyard continues to be enjoyed for what it is: a luxurious and relaxing oasis in which you can truly let your hair down.
