The Benefits of Deer Fencing
There are many different types of deer fencing available and a few requirements for any wildlife fence that should be observed in order to make the barrier as effective as possible. The main issue with keeping deer out of a yard, farm, or garden is that fences used are often too short. Deer can jump over six feet into the air, and some adult deer are able to jump over 8 feet. For this reason, the absolute minimum height for a deer fence should be 6 feet, as this will deter most deer from entering your property. If deer are still able to get over a fence of this height, 8-foot fences are also available. Some of the main benefits of deer fencing include:
Fencing that has been manufactured specifically to keep deer and elk out of an enclosed area typically exceeds the height that the animals can jump. Consult your local fence dealer to make sure that you get a fence that is the appropriate size to deal with the animals in your area.
Many larger deer or elk can break or damage weaker fences in their attempts to access a food source. For this reason, deer fencing from Edge Wholesale Direct is designed to be able to withstand the kind of abuse that can be expected from these animals.
In order to survive well in any environment, good deer fencing products are all galvanized to ensure longevity and weather resistance.
