Steel Hex VS 19 Ga Weld Wire Fence

Posted by Jennifer Smith on

DIY'ers looking for a metal deer fence often turn to two types of fence: Steel Hex Web Fence and Welded Wire Fence. Both are strong metal fences and are used for deer management and rodent protection; however, is one better than the other? Let's explore:
