One of the big obstacles that any gardener has to worry about are pesky animals. For animals that tend to get into your garden over ground, one of the best ways to keep them out is to get a fence to protect it. Deer can be particularly devastating to your garden; not only do they love them some greens, but they can potentially disrupt your garden even beyond that. Not every garden benefits from the same type of fence – some gardeners may live in an area where deer are less prominent, and as such do not have to worry quite much about those types of invasive animals. As such, you must make sure that you get the fence that is right for you.
If you are operating on a fencing budget, a simple wire or chain-linked fence is probably your best bet. It is not the most attractive type of fence, but it does a much better service to your crops than nothing at all. If you can afford it, you should definitely consider upgrading to a solid wood or metal fence; again, it is not aesthetically pleasing (in fact it is perhaps even worse than a wire/chain-linked fence because it obscures your view of your garden), but keeping your vegetation out of sight does a world of good to keep it out of the animal’s’ mind. Finally, you should also consider an electric fence if you can fit it into your budget. It is a pretty good way of keeping animals out while also being mindful of the aesthetic presentation of your garden.
There are a lot of things that you need to be mindful of when getting a fence however; local ordinances for instance could put a damper on your fencing plans, such as if it is too high. Make sure to read up on this so you do not end up wasting time and money.
