How to Save Money (And Not Sacrifice Quality) When Buying Deer Fence
Posted by Shelby Carlson on 31st Jan 2023
A small herd of deer can quickly decimate a garden or flowerbed. The fruits, vegetables, and even plants make a delicious and easy meal for these herbivores. If you live in an area with deer, it won't be long before they find your garden buffet. Deer are grazers who tend to feast at night when you're asleep, so despite your best efforts, it can be difficult to keep these majestic animals out of your garden. Purchasing a deer fence is the best way to protect your hard work and ensure you do not lose your harvest to hungry wildlife. Understandably, you do not want to spend a fortune; fortunately, you don't have to. This is your guide on how to save money when buying a deer fence.
How to Choose the Right Fencing Material for Your Situation
The right material for your deer fence will depend on the amount of deer pressure and other types of wildlife in the area. The two most common options are poly (plastic) and metal fencing. Poly fencing is the least expensive material and ideal in an area with light deer pressure. However, plastic deer fencing is not chew-resistant, so if you are dealing with chewers (e.g., rabbits), this type of material will not be suitable. Metal is the better option if you are experiencing heavy deer pressure and chewers. You will be amazed at how much damage even one rabbit and other small animals can do to a garden. Entire plants can disappear overnight. They will even dig in the soil to munch on root vegetables. When choosing the right metal, welded wire, fixed knot, hardware cloth, and steel hex web are the best options offering strength and durability to withstand heavy deer pressure and keep small wildlife out.
Ask yourself the following questions to ensure you are making the right decision:
- How much deer pressure am I dealing with?
- Am I concerned with smaller wildlife?
- What are my personal preferences?
Err on the side of caution. It is better to have too much protection than not enough.
Choose Affordable Fence Options That are Easy for Beginners to Install
Deer Busters offers the most affordable plastic and metal deer fencing kits and accessories available on the market. Our options are much cheaper and more effective than alternative deer fencing solutions, including inhumane electric fences and wooden and chain link fences. These options are pricey, ineffective, and will obstruct the view of your garden. Our solutions are cost-efficient, visually appealing, effective, and easy for beginners with no experience to install. Deer Busters offers two types of fencing: plastic and metal. Let's take a closer look at each of these deer fencing options below.
Plastic Deer Fencing
Our poly deer fence is made of the highest-quality lightweight polypropylene material. It creates a visible barrier to ward off deer and other unwanted wildlife. There is no need to worry about poly fencing obstructing your garden view or being an eyesore. It's nearly invisible from just 20 feet away, giving you the best of both worlds, a stunning view, and protection.
If you decide to relocate your garden or need to move the fencing for any reason, it is very easy to do due to its lightweight properties. Choose from different mesh thicknesses and sizes.
Metal Deer Fencing
Deer Busters offers a full line of metal deer fencing, including:
- PVC-coated welded wire
- Galvanized welded wire
- Steel hex fence
- Fixed knot fence
- PVC-coated hardware cloth
- Hardware cloth
Choosing metal fencing with small holes, such as welded wire or hardware cloth, will also keep small animals, such as rabbits and groundhogs, out of the fenced-off area. Additionally, metal is chew resistant, so you don't have to worry about animals chewing through your fence. As with our poly fencing, you can choose between different gauges of wire and sizes of holes. Metal is a stylish option that offers maximum protection against a wide range of species.
Avoid Buying A La Carte, Bundle with Deer Fence Kits, and Save Big
You should always buy in bulk to save money on your deer fence. Buying the materials and supplies you need individually is expensive and will quickly drain your bank account. Instead, purchase deer fence kit bundles with all the materials and tools you need to build your deer fence easily. At the time of purchase, you can add customizations such as corners, ends, gates, and tension kits. It is much more affordable and will save you time and hassle searching multiple stores to find all the supplies and materials you need. Deer Busters offers deer fence kit bundles in plastic, steel hex web, and welded wire. Make one purchase and get everything you need at a fraction of the price you will pay purchasing individual supplies. It is hands-down the most affordable and quickest way to build an effective and long-lasting deer fence.
