Deer Fence that Really Keeps Out Deer
Why Our Deer Fence Works: What You Should Know
The world has two types of really good deer fencing. One is metal hexagrid fencing (the best but also more expensive) and the other is the more traditional polypropylene deer fencing.
The metal hexagrid fencing ends all deer penetrations. Strong, good-looking, and less visible than most kinds of polypropylene deer fencing, metal hexagrid fencing is the longest-lasting deer fencing available today. The average cost of materials (with variations) for a metal hexagrid deer fence (including the fencing, posts, gates, and accessories) comes to about $6 per linear foot. Its estimated life (again with variations depending on circumstances) is roughly 20 years.
The more traditional polypropylene fencing, made either by the Tenax Corporation or by U.S. makers, comes in several grades that reliably keep out deer. The basic requirement is that the fencing contain at least 80 grams of polypropylene per square meter. Lighter grades, commonly sold as bargains by mass marketers, are good for wrapping shrubs and such; but they won't reliably keep out deer, because the deer, if they choose, can walk right through them. Assuming your poly meets the minimum 80 gram standard (such material typically has a mesh size of 1.75 x 2 inches), the usual cost of materials for a polypropylene deer fence (including fence rolls, posts, gates, and accessories) ranges from $3.50 to $4.50 per linear foot. Such poly fences have an expected life on the order of 10 years, those with the strongest grades of poly doing somewhat better.
