Keeping Animals Out With Garden Fences

Whether you live in the city or the country, keeping animals out of your garden is a mission. Before you go about building a Fence to keep the animals out of your garden, you should first identify what animal you want to keep out.

Fencing is normally the best and easiest way of keeping animals out. Chicken wire garden fence should keep out a range of animals, including rabbits, foxes, and other woodland creatures. Your chicken/wire mesh garden fencing may have to be of a certain height to prevent the more confidence of animals. It is also recommended to help prevent animals from burrowing under your fence to fit the fencing or chicken wire slightly below the earth's surface.

When installing your fencing, it is best to check for underground outdoor pipework. This is so when you're installing your timber, metal, composite or other material fence posts, and they won't disrupt or break any underground water or heating pipes.

While garden fencing can help prevent unwanted visitors, it is best to ensure you have the correct amount and type of supplies and fencing accessories you need for the project.

Garden Fence Post Installation Tips

When installing your fencing, making sure your fence post is properly fitted is one of the most important things. When installing your fencing panels, your posts will be the main support for the entire installation.

1) Mark out your area - making sure all the spaces for your posts are in line. If the posts are not in a straight line, your panels will be installed at an angle.

2) Clear your post area of any sign of rocks, debris, gravel, and any hazardous materials

3) When creating your holes, ensure that the holes are all of the same depth for your Fencing Board structure.

4) Dig your post hole slightly larger than your fence post. If you have one using a posthole digger is recommended, saving both time and effort, and the holes will be more precise than if you're digging with a spade or shovel.

5) Use pouring concrete when installing the Fencing Posts as this will help keep your installation stable and help it last for many years to come.
