Of course the thing we need to think about when thinking about selling our property if we have a pool is that it is correctly fenced and complies with the council by-laws. Below is the Ashburton District Councils fencing guide which can also be found on the ADC website. SWIMMING POOLS

Mick Hydes & Debbie Boon

Being that the summer this year is proving to be a scorcher we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to remind everyone about the rules around fencing the swimming pool, hot tub or spa pool.

150mm • Where the latch is on the pool side of the fence it must be accessible only from over the top of the fence or through a hole at least 1.2m above the ground • If outside the pool area, it must be at least 1.5m above the ground and the gate must always open away from the pool • All swimming pools are required to be registered at Council

While a pool can provide great family entertainment it is important it is kept safe for young children. The If a pool is not fenced to the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act 1987 standard of the Act, the owner must was introduced to protect young ensure the pool is kept empty. children from the dangers of unfenced swimming and spa pools. EXEMPTIONS All swimming pools, spa pools, hot tubs must be registered with Council. You might also require a building consent to install your pool. WHAT ARE THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS?

The fence must comply with the following criteria: • The minimum height of a The popularity of the backyard swimming or spa pool fence is swimming pool dates back to the 1.2m above ground level Hollywood movies of the 1950s.

All private swimming pools need to be fenced unless: • The maximum depth is 400 mm or less • The walls of the pool are 1.2 metres or more above the ground with no steps, hand holds or projections enabling a child to climb Pool owners who would like to be considered for an exemption must apply in writing to Ashburton District Council stating which features do not comply with the Act and the means provided to ensure the safety or restrict access for young children.

Outdoor Living

Making the most of outdoor living There are many ways to improve your outdoor living area to make it suit your household's lifestyle. It may mean creating hidden spaces in your garden or adding well-placed furniture to capture the sun but leave enough space for a game of backyard cricket. Regardless of the size of your section or your budget it's relatively easy to change it to suit. PLAN THE SPACE

couches that suit outdoor areas. However, do plan your seating according to any weather conditions. A sofa and cushions is great for a protected veranda area, but not in the middle of lawn. Chose furniture made from outdoor fabrics that withstand the heat of the sun but dry quickly after rain. Include a variety of seating choices with intimate grouping of two chairs and more for bigger groups allowing the area being overcrowded – seating for six or eight is ideal, depending on your entertaining requirements.

ADD MODERN STYLE OR FLAIR

Art or water features can give outdoor living areas a boost of style and are good for Feng Shui. If your budget does not stretch to a full sized garden water fountain look for smaller versions. There are table top sized water features. Putting shelves on a wall to add feature or placing hanging plants or hooks can add style to an area, as can the addition of cushions or pillows and even healthy table top plants. The addition of modern wall art is also a good choice for brick/ concrete or plain walls. And it's easy

and relatively inexpensive to change outdoor living accessories with new pillows, slipcovers or umbrella shades. If you are in the position you could also consider adding an outdoor fireplace or a wood fired pizza oven for extra flair. PRACTICAL DESIGN

Using practical multi-use furniture is a sensible option. These might include benches that double as storage containers for cushions or tools or tables that break into stools.

Consider the space – do it on paper if you must - and then decide where you want to base an outdoor dining area and table and chairs. Decide whether the space will be close to the house or further into the garden, hidden among the trees and shrubs. Keep in mind, that some professionals say that an outdoor space is more likely to be used for entertaining if it's closer to the house. Once the area has been identified, create a path to it. This may mean lying formal walkways, or using more rustic means such as tree branches to identify paths. Or just shaping the lawn to encourage people to walk to it. The use of recycled bricks is also popular. PROVIDE SOME PROTECTION

To get the best out of the area, consider the benefits of planting shrubs around the spot for wind protection, or topping trees to allow for natural light to reach the spot. There may also be a need for privacy and planting climbing trees up a trellis is one easy option, as is a stand-alone fence screen, which might block the view of neighbours. PLAN THE SEATING

There are benches, chairs and
