Pool Privacy Ideas That Are Important To Take Into Consideration
Pool privacy ideas, theoretically and practically, are numberless. Their only limits are the length of human lives. We can always producing the ideas, anytime when people think about such privacy.
Ideas are those things which have their seats in human thought. Ideas are thinkable. As long as humans exist as humans, the thinkable cannot be limited. Ideas of privacy for a pool are more particular, and more limited, but actually and essentially still unlimited. It’s due to the unlimited nature of human thought which produces them.
Let us depart from privacy
Privacy is the state of being private. This refers to the situation when the ego or any parties allowed by the ego who are permitted to see. It also counts on knowing about the things which are seen as private. Those things require privacy.
In today’s world, we provide privacy of human bodily activities by building enclosures for such activities: taking a bath, sleeping, doing reproductive activities, and many more. In addition to building such enclosures, another way to maintain privacy to protect ourselves with clothing. There are parts of a body which the owner displays to public sight, other parts are otherwise. Anyone has his or her own rules which parts of his body are good to be viewed by anyone.
Human face is usually not a private part of the human body. When a part of the body is private, the owner of the body and anyone who is permitted by the owner to take a look on it can see the part. A spouse allows his spouse to see what the public cannot view over his or her body in a private site, i.e. a place where any looking on unpermitted persons are not likely to happen: forests, deserts, deserted streets, rooms, etc.
Privacy in swimming or bathing in a pool
In such a case, clothing is normally not fully used for securing body privacy. And breaching others’ privacy is simply fun to do: especially when it is not well protected. And it is not pleasant to find that our privacy is actually compromised when we have our relax time in the pool. It is due to such a fact that people try to protect such a pool’s privacy.
Preserving privacy is the action of making others incapable of breaching it. The extreme idea for doing so is by making others unable to use their eyes to see our pool: making others blind is a horrible idea for protecting our privacy. We simply are not in a time where technology to blind others temporarily when they are in sites where their sight lines are good to see us in the pool. The technically and ethically not problematic ways of blocking their sights are essentially for creating obstructions against such sights.
Sniper problems in pool privacy
The art of making others unable to see us has to be learned by a sniper sergeant. He generally wears disguise clothes, or stations himself on a point where it is generally impossible for anyone with or without any telescope to see him. The same principle is to be observed in our effort to secure our pool privacy: situating our pool in such a way that others cannot see it, or blocking their views in one or another way.
What methods are available technically and commercially for such a purpose
For enhancing the privacy of our pool, we have methods such as 1) fencing, 2) privacy screens or panels, 3) canopies and umbrellas, 4) trees, bushes and plants, 5) water features, 6) pergolas, gazebos, 7) screen enclosures.
Fencing for a pool may be for safety or for privacy. A safety fence is to assure that the pool is safe for children and pets. Such a fence can also be designed for a privacy purpose. Privacy fence is for blocking the stares of onlookers. How a privacy fence is built, that is a question that will be answered in a satisfactory way by a professional fence maker. The place where the fence is erected is the point where it blocks most effectively on ground onlookers’ watch.
Privacy screens and privacy panels are essentially for the same function: blocking views from more elevated places such as the upper floor or attic windows. That is what makes them different from fences. In addition, such view blockers are adaptable, affordable and movable. But if not well designed, such screens or panels can be detrimental to our own view: it is not okay to see bad looking screens or panels. Professionals have mastered techniques to assure that the screen creates beautiful scenery too.
Canopies and umbrellas
Canopies and umbrellas are roof-like sight blockers, but they protect partially anything and anyone under their shades from sun beam and rains. Such privacy protective devices cannot be as high as screens and panels. Canopies and umbrellas do effectively secure your pool privacy but they block your view to the sky: if you are a little bit claustrophobic a canopy reduces your security feeling.
Trees, bushes and plants function like a screen. They block higher sight lines, but do not make us blind of the sky. They are refreshing to our sight: they are living screens, they simply make you love to see them, for we love to see living things actually. Thuja Green Giants, Leyland cypresses and certain bamboos are among choices that we have for installing a living screen for protecting our pool’s privacy.
A water feature can be an artificial waterfall. The feature may block unwanted sights-on, but can also function for a sound barrier to prevent too close neighbours to overhear your conversation, or drown their loud voices. Such a feature may increase the beauty of the yard in which your pool is.
Pergolas and gazebos are essentially like canopies and umbrellas, but they are usually made of wood, so their look can be more natural and more friendly to human sights. People tend to prefer seeing wood rather than metal.
Screen enclosures are essentially cages, roofed and sided with screens. The screen blocks views from outside. But aesthetically, screen enclosures look like cages. They are cages indeed. The idea of swimming in a cage is not beautiful. For the safety purposes, such enclosures are perfect for preventing pets and children from getting injured by the pool. They prevent bugs from coming into the water.
Ideas on above ground pool privacy
An above ground pool is typically small. Such a pool looks and functions more like a big bathtub. The most likely activity in the pool is bathing, and playing around for children. Privacy for such a pool is generally and highly demanded by the owners. The affordability of such a pool makes it installed in a relatively small back or side yard of a house, in proximity to neighbouring homes. Bathing in such a pool while neighbours easily watch you is horrible. Fences, screens and panels are affordable options for securing your privacy pool.
What to do to make your swimming pool absolutely private
A swimming pool is usually larger than an above ground pool. A swimming pool is normally more than 25 yards long with various widths, to allow us to swim. Its large dimension makes the effort to assure its privacy more complicated. Fences, screens and panels, landscapes can be installed for assuring privacy. Professional designers and builders of such a swimming pool have surely had their solutions for technical problems for providing such privacy.
Pool privacy fence ideas
Backyard fence for a pool is strictly controlled by regulations. In the US, a yard fence cannot exceed six feet above grade. If complete privacy is demanded, such a fence can be made impregnable by letting no space between panels of boards of which the fence is made. But such a fence can seem depressing for it blocks our view to the outside of the fence.
The core idea is that the fence blocks the gaze of onlookers while preventing unwanted intruders, and that it has to be good looking, and durable. Such a fence can be added with shrubs or trees to enhance its screening capacity. If intrusion of stranger pets is tried to be prevented, the fence should be made impregnable for those animals.
The essence of installing a pool privacy screen
The main point of installing a privacy screen is that you simply want it to be effective in making your neighbours’ or outsiders’s eyes have no sight into your pool. Panels can be installed for such a screen, but a screen is also likely to do the job. It is very recommended that the screens or panels are gorgeous to look at. It is not good to have a panel that disturbs sights from inside.
Pool cage privacy ideas
What we are after in having a caged pool is that we can control the access into the pool and prevent bugs and leaves from falling into the pool. Such a cage makes us more confident in ensuring that accidents of children or pets drowning into the pool is much less likely. But the cage is not a good sight. The structure recalls the idea of being enclosured like birds or butterflies. The feeling of being caged is sometimes disturbing to certain people.
Pool privacy landscaping ideas
Landscaping is the making of a landscape: drawing the plan, erecting a fence around, planting trees, deciding the place of a pool, doing all measures to secure privacy, etc. The idea is that the area is good to stay in (we feel safe and private) and to see.
Landscaping involves many skills and professional services. Doing by yourselves your yard’s landscaping is a huge project if you depart as a pure newbie in such a work. But the landscaping is required to be perfect and relatively fast, professional services are ready to make your wish true.
Pool Deck Privacy Ideas
A deck is generally built for a small above or semi inground pool. The deck makes the pool more easily accessed: no need for a special ladder for getting into it.
A deck for such a pool is usually built from wood. The durability of the deck depends on the durability of the wood. Pressure treated wood boards and shafts are good for building such a deck. The design of the deck, you can draw it yourselves or hire a professional designer to create one for you. There are professional deck makers that provide the whole services for making a deck for you. You pick the design, and they will make the deck for you.
Backyard Pool Privacy Ideas
A backyard pool can be a swimming pool or only a small above ground one. If the backyard is adjacent to your neighbours’ backyards, and their sights are such an inconvenience for you, many methods can be used for securing your privacy.
Professional services are there to make your pool private. They have all their means for such a purpose. You pay them and your pool will surely be private. Ideas for such a private pool can be seen on the internet. Their photos talk to you in a more explaining way than a long article on them.

It seems that the photos contain the whole information needed by a professional to conceive similar designs for your yard. You show the photo to him, and he will be able to create a similar and well suited design for your yard. With your consent and money, they are ready to install the design on your yard.
Securing Outdoor pool privacy
To have an outdoor swimming pool in your yard while wishing that the pool is as private as your bathtub is somehow a paradox. The enclosure of your house has provided you the maximum privacy. There are sites where people simply let go of their privacy while doing outdoor activities: summer beaches and parks. There are also sites where being nude is allowed, where one does not consider bodily privacy important.
The pool privacy has material consequences: you have to build or install things to assure that the sights of unwanted persons can be eliminated. A nudist community is where such privacy becomes nonexistent: everyone is nude, so what is the point of taking a peak to your nude neighbours’ pool. The needs for privacy create a huge market providing all measures to protect such a privacy: fence, screens, panels, shrubs, trees, landscape designs, and all their derivatives.
