Deer Fence Or Dog Fence?

Posted on June 23 2020

When considering yard fencing, homeowners may worry about plant protection as well as pet security. After all, wildlife have been known to attack companion animals in backyards. Sometimes, homeowners feel they must choose between buying a chain-link fence for their dog or buying a garden fence to protect plants from deer browsing.

Homeowners, you don't have to choose!

Plastic deer fencing that is at least 7.5 feet tall will keep out light to moderate deer pressure from lawns and gardens while protecting small and calm dogs from wildlife encounters. Poly deer fencing has a breaking strength of at least 570 pounds to protect flowers from deer damage and secure puppies and small dogs in yards. 

Metal deer fencing is even stronger than plastic deer fencing and helps to protect plants from chewing animals including deer, coyotes, rabbits and groundhogs. Better yet, steel fencing can secure chewing dogs in yards and those dog breeds with high energy levels. 

Property owners don't have to choose between their gardening hobby and their pets. Deer fencing can serve as a reliable fence for plant protection and dog security in yards.
