What is a garden fence kit?
A garden fence kit is a bundle of fence parts that when assembled creates a garden fence starting from nothing. Common parts include: fence posts, garden fencing, hardware to attach fencing to posts and ground stakes to pin the base of the fence to the ground (to prevent animals from going under the fence).
How is this type of fencing different from other garden fences or garden fence kits?
We specialize in fences to keep animals in or out. Our fence kits (depending on the options you choose) include garden fence post ground sleeves that have a set screw. Once the sleeves are installed in the ground, our round tubular posts slide into the ground sleeves and lock in with a set screw. This makes the garden fence kit permanent or removable (useful for temporary garden fences – fence is up during the growing season and taken down otherwise, leaving space to till the ground etc). Our fence kits are very customizable – different opening sizes, heights, lengths etc.
Are garden fence kits expensive?
No. You will find that our do it yourself DIY garden fence kits are much less expensive than conventional fencing (stockade, chain link, aluminum) and very customizable. Vast areas can be fenced in for a low cost per linear foot depending on the options you choose.
What is the best garden fence kit?
The best garden fence kit effectively keeps out all the animals you are trying to stop from eating your plants. This varies greatly depending on the types of plants and the types of animals in your area. For example, 2x2 opening size fence is great for excluding deer – but – rabbits can push through and needs a 1x1 opening size (at least on the bottom, rabbits don’t climb).
What are the best garden fence kits for 2023?
The best and most common metal garden fence for 2023 (compared to traditional, older garden fence types) is a 2x2 opening size tall fence to exclude deer in poly or metal paired with a 1x1 or 1/2x1/2 36 inch bottom wire. This allows for a 30 inch tall garden rodent barrier with 6 inches of overlap on the ground, pinned to the ground facing outwards. This deters animals from digging up under the fence for access.
