Vegetable Garden Fencing

Finding the Right Garden Fence When exploring different garden fences, it’s important to understand standard fence terminology. For instance, garden fences are measured by the gauge of the wire. The size of the gauge wire depends on the width of the fence. The higher the number, the more narrow the gauge. Very fine wire (27-gauge) requires more passes through the drawing than a 4-gauge wire. Fencing is also measured in mesh, which can vary from one type of fence to another. A mesh is a semipermeable barrier of metal fibers. Meshes are commonly used to screen out unwanted things, like rabbits, rats and deer. Here are some fence options to consider: Chain-link fencing is an economical way to enclose an area, restrict pets or keep unwanted creatures out. Chain-link fencing is made of galvanized steel and comes in rolls from 25 feet to 100 feet long and 4 feet to 6 feet high, with prefabricated gates up to 5 feet wide. Vinyl-coated chain-link fencing is also available. Welded wire fencing is perfect for keeping larger animals out of gardens or certain areas of your landscape. With a heavier wire gauge, this fence is strong and durable. Like chain-link fencing, it’s also available with a vinyl coating, usually green or brown. And when combined with rail fencing, the welded wire provides a reinforced pet containment area. This material comes in a 14-gauge wire mesh 2-inch-by-4-inch, 36-inch, 48-inch, or 60-inch widths. Poultry netting, or chicken wire, may be the most economical type of containment fence available. As the name implies, it’s generally used to fence in chickens. It’s also a good choice for small dogs, rabbits and other small pets. Rabbit guard is the truest of garden fences because the mesh varies greatly. With smaller openings at the bottom and increased mesh openings as you move up the fence, this fencing system is perfect for keeping small animals out of your garden. With a galvanized finish, this fence is made to last longer and provides protection from rust. This 16-gauge wire mesh varies with 1-inch, 2-inch, and 4-inch, openings in 28-inch, to 50-foot rolls. Electric fencing is normally used to contain livestock. With low-output chargers, electric fencing can be used in residential settings for pet containment or keeping animals out of garden areas. Electronic pet containment fencing is an excellent choice for anyone who needs to contain pets without any visible sign of a fence. The system consists of a thin gauge wire, a transmitter and a collar. You can form the fence into any shape you want, covering an area up to 25 acres. Put the collar on your pet, and if it gets close to the fence’s perimeter, the pet receives an audible warning signal through the collar. Wireless pet fencing is also available. Hex netting is a lighter, inexpensive option for protecting a garden. For those looking to keep animals out, the smaller mesh size of the 1-inch hex netting is superior to the 2-inch version. This woven product is made with galvanized wire making it pliable, easy to handle and weather-resistant. This 20-gauge wire comes with a mesh of 1-inch and 2-inch, 24-inch, 36-inch and 48-inch widths in 25-foot, 50-foot, and 150-foot rolls.

Step Twelve // Install a Critter-Proof Garden Fence Staple on the Upper Fencing Photo by Wendell T. Webber Begin by attaching the fencing to a corner post, hammering in ¾-inch galvanized staples every 18 inches along its cut end, so the top lands in the middle of the upper rail. Staple the fencing along the upper rail, unspooling the roll as you go. Use linesman pliers to trim it and staple it along the opposite corner post. Then fasten it to the middle posts and lower rail. Repeat the process for the remaining sides, skipping the space between the gateposts.

Preventing Animals from Entering Your Garden Deterring animals is one of the best uses for a fence. Below are some tips to consider when fencing your garden. In all applications, the fence fabric can be placed belowground for added protection against burrowing animals. There are two factors to consider when deciding on how deep to bury your fence: the animals in your region and the desired height of your fence. To install a rabbit guard, you can use either a 3-foot or 4-foot post. The difference is that when you use the 3-foot post, you’ll have unsupported fabric at the top 4 inches of the fence. With 4-foot posts there will be 8 inches of post above the fabric. Using 4-foot posts may pose a danger to persons due to the posts being exposed. In the case of all other products, the post should be 1 foot longer than the fence fabric for light-duty posts and 2 feet longer than the fence fabric for heavy-duty posts. When deciding on the fence height, remember this will affect the opening and closing of your garden. Higher fences require either gates or adaptable fence post tabs that easily open and close. A 24-inch to 28-inch fence fabric can be sufficient to keep many animals out. Dogs and other jumping animals may require taller fence structures. And when it comes to deer, a wider netting material is vital to restricting access. CautionBefore beginning any excavation, call 811 to check for underground utilities.
