GLASS POOL SURROUNDS
The centerpiece of this garden is a swimming pool and raised outdoor lounge. A glass surround encloses the pool to keep children safe. “This is a legal requirement. Australia has just introduced even more stringent pool guidelines so it is essential when designing pools that the surrounds are correct or it won’t be approved by councils,” explains Cantwell. Glass surrounds provide a much cleaner view than a fence and also offer wind protection. “Having glass allows the pool area to still feel like part of the outdoor area. It ticks the boxes for the legal requirements without being so intrusive in the landscape design.”
