Not all above-ground pools need to be placed way
above-ground. This one is tucked in a corner of a large yard, near one of the side fences. Note that it is about 3-4 feet off the ground at most, has a safety fence around its perimeter, but that it is not much higher than the fence that borders the property. Not raising the pool above the height of the fence helps make the pool more private for its owners. And looking at things from the other side of the fence, the neighbors don't have to view the pool whenever they're in their yard.
The pool area could be made more private by planting some shrubs, small trees or vines between the pool and the property's fence.
