Are you looking to get more privacy around your pool this summer? Having a Doughboy® pool in your backyard is great, but it can be uncomfortable if your neighbors or passersby have a clear view of your pool area.
Install a Privacy Fence
A privacy fence is one of the most effective ways to add privacy to your pool area. It can block the view of your pool from neighbors and passersby and give you a sense of seclusion and security.
You can even choose from different privacy fences, such as vinyl, wood, aluminum, and composite, to make the space fit your style. Each fencing material has advantages and disadvantages, so research and choose the one that best suits your needs.
Add Shrubs and Trees to Get More Privacy Around Your Pool
Another way to add privacy to your pool area is by planting shrubs and trees around your backyard. This can create a natural barrier that blocks the view of your pool from outsiders.
Choose plants suitable for your climate and will grow tall enough to provide privacy. Some good options include evergreen trees, hedges, and shrubs.
Use Outdoor Curtains to Get More Privacy Around Your Pool
Outdoor curtains are an easy and affordable way to add privacy to your pool area. You can install them on a pergola or a covered patio to create a private retreat.
Outdoor curtains come in different styles, colors, and materials, so you can choose the ones that match your pool area’s decor. This can also be a great way to keep a sunny pool area more shaded.

As the name implies, shade sails provide shade to backyards. However, they can also be used to add more privacy to your pool area, as well. They are a great option if you have a smaller pool area and want to block the view of your pool from your neighbors.
Shade sails come in different sizes, shapes, and colors and can be attached to structures like a fence or a post.
Build a Screened-In Pool Enclosure
A screened-in pool enclosure is a permanent solution to privacy concerns, and it not only provides privacy but also protects your pool area from insects and debris.
A screened-in pool enclosure can be customized to fit your pool area’s shape and size, and it can be made of different materials, such as aluminum, wood, or vinyl.
If you go with glass instead of screens, you can also make it so you can use your pool more throughout the year.
Use Portable Privacy Screens Get More Privacy Around Your Pool
You can use portable privacy screens if you don’t want to install a permanent privacy solution. Depending on your needs, these screens can be moved around your pool area. They come in different sizes, styles, and materials, such as bamboo, wood, or vinyl.
Install Trellises and Vines
Trellises and vines are another excellent way to add privacy to your pool area while also adding beauty and texture.
You can install a trellis along the fence or a wall and let the vines climb up. Some good options for vines include climbing roses, wisteria, and grapevines.
There are so many ways to get more privacy around your pool! Consider your budget, maintenance requirements, and desired level of privacy before deciding the best solution.
