A. Deer Fence
In many parts of the country, deer have become the main cause of damage to gardens. We have tested deer fencing for several years and settled on this 3/4" mesh in rolls 100' long and 7' high.

Although 100' weighs less than 2 lb, the mesh is very strong, easily keeping rabbits and ground hogs at bay. With deer it depends on a scarecrow effect. Deer won't breach it if they see it; the only problem is if they stumble upon it at night. Deer have excellent night vision but the mesh is nearly invisible at a distance of 20' even in daylight. For this reason we strongly recommend tying a horizontal ribbon (or 1/4" polypropylene rope) 3' to 4' off the ground as a visible warning at all times.

Any mesh used outdoors could entangle unintended wildlife, but careful placement and the use of warning ribbons can minimize this risk. For example, if using the fence to deter deer only, consider leaving a gap of 6" or more above the ground to allow small animals to pass.

Made of high-density UV-resistant polyethylene, the mesh withstands both sun and cold. An effective and inexpensive solution, it installs easily with staples (sold separately) and any small-diameter posts. Detailed fence-building instructions and user tips included.

 
 
 

B. Staples
Mesh fence can be attached to posts with a hand stapler; however, this method can cut through the mesh if too much force is used (particularly when stapling into softwood). These traditional 3/4" U-shaped galvanized staples are perfect for the job. They tap into place easily to hold mesh securely without cutting it.

Available by the half pound (over 200 staples), these are also useful to hold vines on trellises or other wooden backing of any kind.

C. Fencing Tool
This traditional tool has a single-point pulling claw designed to pull the U-shaped staples used to hold barbed wire, page wire, chain link, deer fencing, etc. It also has a serrated hammer face to minimize mis-strikes when driving staples. Additional features are wire-stretching grips, nail-pulling teeth, wire-cutting notches on both sides, and high-friction handgrips. The satin-finish chrome plating minimizes corrosion. 10-1/2" overall.
