The Butterfly Exhibit at the Philadelphia Flower Show this year was worth the extra $5 fee. The butterflies were extremely friendly–hanging out on my shirt and hat without much coaxing. I wish I new what type of butterfly she is.

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.

Can You See the Deer Fence?

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.

When deer fence is installed in wooded areas, it is nearly invisible when foliage is out. The deer fencing you see here follows the contour of a stream with posts spaced 10-12 part. The height of this deer fence is 7 feet. Deer fence is a great way to keep deer out and can also be used as dog fence.

Deer Grate

One year check up on a deer driveway gate installed in eastern PA.  Notice the deer fence along the sides of the grate to eliminate cross jumping. This grate can handle basically any weight you can throw on it. It is deep enough to work even during heavy snows. The frame is made of pressure treated Grade A wood and steel. The top section is 3/8" thick x 2 1/2" angle iron which runs across the driveway leaving the deer no chance to tip toe in.

The entire job has all most a 1/2 mile of deer fence installed around the perimeter. The fence line has 4 access gate systems, many hard turns and hills and features a creek crossing.  You can use the Benner Deer Fence System to complete any deer fencing needs you may have.

Rusted Ground Sleeve

rusted ground sleeve

At a recent job, we found ground sleeves filled at least half way up with water and the base of the posts rusted out. Here we show one of the ground sleeves after removal with water draining out the top end. We replaced the section of fence with our reverse sleeve method which will not allow this to happen again.

Traditional Deer Fence Sleeve Rust

This past month we were replacing a fence that had been erected using traditional ground sleeves. The fence was about 7 years old. When we removed the sleeves from the ground, we found that they were rusted out.

This is what else we found at the job site– Where the water was laying in the ground sleeve, it caused the post to rust, weaken and bend.

The damaged deer fencing materials you see here were replaced using The Benner Deer Fence Company system. Our reverse sleeve installation system will not allow this to happen. Here's why:

Our sleeve acts as an acceptor, where the posts fits on top of the sleeve. Once the post and post cap are in place, there is no way for water to penetrate the post or the sleeve.
