Will a wisteria cause damage when growing near an inground pool and twining around the pool fence?

It was planted last year and has just had its first flowers.

Hi Laurel,

At the moment your vine looks like it is quite a young specimen and it looks very pretty. This is a very vigorous vine and as it gets older, the root system will become much stronger and so will the thickness of the stems that are curling around your pool fence. I think it would be a good idea to remove it now before it causes you any problems. There are a number of ornamental vines that would be suitable for growing around your pool that won't cause you any concerns.
