We were going to fence in our yard instead of the pool... probably will still do that down the road, but after thinking more about it, we really want a safety fence around the pool also... once that can be taken down for parties if we need to, but left in place otherwise, and off season, to keep kids (and animals too) away from the pool. I will want it on the outside edge of the decking (probably pavers), so the pool can be used without taking it down. Since we have a very big yard, it will also save me $$$ (I am hoping) on the yard fencing right now. Later when the kids are grown, or can all swim, we can remove the safety fence and just have the yard fence with very little effort, and put it back any time kids will be playing in the yard.
I see there are a few companies that do mesh safety fencing. Are they all the same? Or are any better than others? Are they all about the same cost/ft? What price range?
