What to do here? Post and mesh type fence

What to do here? Post and mesh type fence

I think if we went almost right after the fibre glass its 900mm which is what it needs to be. Then thought maybe white rocks and some sort of screening tree in the 900mm space.

Distance between pool, house and boundary

Distance between pool, house and boundary

I'll take a guess here. If you are able to measure that it's 80cm, then they might be allowing 15-20cm concrete wall and tiling. It's only a guess Good luck
