About Our Kits: Why You Should Buy from Us - The Right Parts
Parts in Our Deer Fence Kits:
Fencing: Our kits use metal hexagrid deer exclusion fencing (super strong), Heavy Duty Polypropylene (Tenax C-flex, 60g/m, strong), or Extra Strength Polypropylene (Tenax C-flex P, 80 g/m, stronger). These latter are the same poly grades (with 1.75 x 2-inch mesh) employed by professional poly deer fence installers everywhere.
Posts: We use angle-iron posts for economy, round metal posts with caps for most purposes, and round metal posts with drive sleeves and caps for seasonally removable deer exclusion fences. We also respect standard deer fence post spacing used by professional installers, allowing for about 15 feet between posts on metal hexagrid fences and 20 feet between posts on poly fences. Should snow loading be a serious issue, have us get you a free quote that will space your posts 10 feet apart.
Earth Anchors: All our long (200, 300, and 330-foot) kits use earth anchors along the fence line to brace the fence against snow loads and other sideways stresses. These anchors are positioned so that none of their attachment cables hang outside the fence line.
Weed Barriers and Sleeve Plugs: Our seasonally removable kits include a weed barrier that prevents weeds and grass from growing into the fence bottom. They also come with plugs for covering the tops of metal post sleeves, so that water won’t get into the sleeves in the off-season, once the posts have been removed.
Zip-lock Ties: We provide plenty of zip-lock ties (at least 7 per post) for attaching the fencing to the posts. These are either heavy black nylon zip ties with 120-pound strength or (for metal hexagrid fences) black stainless steel zip ties that will last the life of the fence.
Ground Stakes: Each kit comes with plenty of ground stakes, at least one for every six feet, to stake down the fence’s 6-inch bottom fold and prevent deer from nosing under the fence. These robust foot-long metal stakes have a sharp point for easy insertion, a kink to resist removal, and a hook at the top to catch the fencing as the last inch or so of the stake is being inserted.
Warning Flags: These white ribbons warn deer of the low-visibility fence’s presence. Tie the flags on at a height of 3 feet when the fence is first installed, and cut them off four months later after local deer have become accustomed to the fence.
- Accessories: Some products are not included but may prove useful, so we offer them separately. They include:
- Manual Post Driver: This great tool allows you to drive in angle-iron or round metal posts quickly and conveniently without scaling anything taller than a 2-step pantry stool.
- Tie Wire: This top support line is provided with our metal hexagrid fences. It isn’t needed for poly fences under 500 feet long, but may be desired because it makes the fence look straighter and neater at the top. If you get it, also get strong nylon zip-lock ties and plan to use one zip-tie per 1.5 feet of fence to attach the tie wire to the top of the fencing.
- Gates: We don’t include gates in our kits because we don’t know the number and width you want or whether you plan to build your own. But we carry a large collection of good-looking affordable gates separately on our gates pages. They include access gates (3 to 7 feet wide, 6 to 8 feet tall) and driveway gates (8 to 16 feet wide, 6 to 8 feet tall).
