Anatomy Of a Poly Deer Fence
So, you've had it with whitetails invading your flowerbeds and destroying the appearance of your garden. Sounds like you are ready for a Deerbusters deer fence for garden protection against wildlife.
A poly deer fence is the best yard fencing for homeowners experiencing light to moderate deer pressure on properties. But, don't let the plastic fence mesh fool you. This poly deer fencing offers superior protection against deer and small wild animals, such as rabbits and will last 15-20 years through all weather patterns and seasons.
If you are ready to build a solid security system for your garden, Deerbusters recommends getting a poly deer fence kit, complete with all the fence materials and accessories needed for ultimate garden protection. In addition to the poly deer fence rolls, fence installers should consider adding a gate, fence tensioning, ground stakes, warning banners, corners and end systems.
Let's break it down:
Deer fence access gates are used to conveniently enter-or-exit a small garden area. Access gate assembly is easy; and kits include the gate frame, leaf, latches and tensioning.
Fence Tensioning Kits
Monofilament wire adds security and can be placed on the top and bottom of the fence to increase longevity of the fence. Use either 8 gauge or 12 gauge monofilament tensioning.
Stake down the fence with ground stakes for added garden security to stop digging deer and rabbits from sneaking underneath the fence. There are two types of ground stakes: Kinked Ground Stakes and Rebar Ground Stakes. If you are an avid camper, Kinked Ground Stakes may look similar to a camping tent stake. Kinked Ground Stakes are best used in average soils, whereas Rebar fence stakes are suggested for soils that are rocky or hard.
Deer have poor vision; and if they are running, they may not detect the fence in front of them. For this reason, installers can add a warning banner every 10 feet at a height of 3-4" above the ground. Warning Banners ensure that the deer will stop before ramming into the garden fence.
Deerbusters HD round line posts are made from galvanized steel to match the exterior of the fence. Fence line posts should be installed every 15-20 feet for best stability.
Fence Corners and Ends
Fence corner and end systems combine strength with stability. Ends are used when the fence terminates against the wall of a house or other structure, and Corner Systems are especially needed for added stability when the fence is longer than 100 feet.
