According to studies, fences keep children out of gardens A fence needs to welcome students, but also keep wildlife out Creating an art fence will allow the students to participate in a real life problemSaturday, June 9, 2012 14. A privacy fence is the most effective type of deer fence. How to Build a Deer Fence The most common effective designs for a deer fence are: Tall Fence: An 8 high fence is considered pretty much deer-proof and is tall enough to prevent even a frightened deer from jumping it. The fence is even more effective if deer cant see through it. Slanted Fence: A 6 high fence can be effective if its slanted outward (toward the deer) at about a 45 angle. Deer will hesitate to jump over it due to both the height and distance. Double Fence: Two fences spaced a few feet apart, regardless of height, can also work. The deer wont like being caught between the fences, so they will avoid attempting the jump. You can also do this with two rows of electric fencing set about 3 apart. Electric Fence: If youre able to maintain it, an electric fence can be a great deer barrier. Even a strand or two of electried wire can keep deer away, as long as its always turned on. Start with one strand of electried wire about 30 off the ground. If deer are still getting in, add strands about a foot above and below the rst one. Monitor the garden, and continue adding strands about a foot apart until the fence is effective against the deer. Electric fencing is less visible and easy to move when working in the garden. Keep in mind, though, that its customary to bait the deer to lick the wire in order to teach them to stay away, which may be seen as cruel. Modied Fence: If your garden already has a shorter fence that isnt working, try modifying it by adding an extension to every second or third pole with mesh or strands of wire stretched between them. This will add height without changing the look of your original fence. Another option is to add a second fence near your existing fence.Saturday, June 9, 2012 15. Deer Fence Materials Mesh fencing for deer.Privacy fencing: If appropriate and affordable, an 8 tall privacy fence is probably the most effective choice. Deer wont jump it since they cant see whats on the other side. Mesh fencing: For larger areas, use 8 mesh stretched between tall metal fence posts. To keep the mesh from sagging, run a taut wire at the top of the posts, and attach it to the mesh to support it. Mesh can also be attached to trees at the edge of the woods for a less noticeable appearance. Mesh fencing comes in a variety of materials, including metal wire (most durable and most expensive), polyethylene-coated metal (expensive, but more attractive), and polypropylene (least expensive, less durable, but less visible). Deer Fence Tips Mesh fencing is almost invisible. Complete Enclosure: A fence only works if it completely encloses your garden! Blockingonly the deer paths will just prompt them to learn new ways in. Make sure gates are secureand as tall as the fence. Landing Zone: For added deterrents, add obstacles just inside the fence to make the deerreluctant to land thereSaturday, June 9, 2012 16.
