Deer Fence used as Pool Fence

Sometimes clients want to use their deer fence as a pool fence. This can be done as long as you have your lower portion of fence meeting the local pool fencing codes. Codes vary from area to area but generally they require at least a 4’ high fence with mesh openings of no greater than 2” x 4."

You may also have to keep your gates locked to meet regulations.

We usually propose doing 4’ high metal fence along the bottom with a mesh design of 2” x 2” and a thickness of 14 gauge. This lower fence can then be blended into the upper poly deer fence section at varying heights. Standard height for deer fencing is around 7’ on our installations.

This is a cost effective way to solve two issues with one fence–keep your flowers safe while you enjoy your new swimming pool enclosure.

Deer Fence or Dog Fence- How to Have both with one Fence

Over the past 25 years we have installed a lot of deer fence. Around 10 years ago we began to get more and more requests for dog fencing. With some outside the box thinking, we were able to come up with a dual solution to these requests.

Here are some main points for a deer and dog fence system:

 

  1. Try and fence an area that will be large enough for dogs but not to extensive that the deer relocation is not sever.

  2. Keep gates and hard turns to a minimum.

  3. Imagine your fence design from both the dogs and the deer's prospective.

  4. Use the correct product for the job. Smaller dogs only need a 2-3’ high metal fence along the bottom, while larger dogs require a 3-4’ high metal fence.

  5. Generally an effective dual dog and deer fence will have a height of 6-7’. Keep your fence as low as possible for your situation. We can help you determine what height you need- just ask.

  6. Don't have deer in your area? If you are just looking for a dog fence, we recommend 4-5' of metal fence.

  7. Questions? Call or email us directly.

The entrance to the Philadelphia Flower Show featured a beautiful installation with a bridge crossing over a canal, windmills, bicycles, and of course flowers. Tulips in every color you can think of filled flower beds and containers. Most of these flowers and plants wouldn't survive hungry deer.

Look closely and you'll notice the white streamer flag, this acts as a warning sign to the deer. Look even closer and you'll see the black deer fence post in front of the spruce tree. This deer fence has 4 cables running horizontally through the fence for added strength if a deer runs into the fence. As the seasons change, and the leaves come out in spring– this deer fence will be completely disguised by the greenery that surrounds it.
