The plan

If you want to take the DIY Pool Fencing path, the first thing that you will need is a strategy. This means thinking about what sort of fencing that you wish to install and consequently your budget. A large element of that will derive from the type of area that you are looking to fence, and how big a fence you are going to need. The first step should be creating a comprehensive plan of your pool area, and what you want it to look like. When you know the area that you dealing with, you can measure out how far from the pool you want the fence to be and can then measure how long the fence will extend, and therefore how much fencing you will need to buy. This is important to do from the start, because if you need a fence far longer than you initially thought, then it could really have an effect on the type of fence you can afford whilst sticking to your budget. In measuring out the pool fence area, please make sure that you are minimizing any potential climb point areas.
