This category page lists all of our metal garden fence rolls
Fence rolls are listed by height x length - for example, a metal garden fence roll listed as 6 x 150 is 6 feet high by 150 feet long.
Different strengths, heights and opening sizes of this fencing are used for different reasons. This metal garden fencing can be used as a stand alone fence or as a chew barrier paired with our poly fence rolls.
Note on opening size: we specialize in small opening size fencing to keep animals in or out. This type of fencing is also not very visible from a distance and will disappear from 25 feet away. Fence mesh with opening sizes greater than 2" can trap and hurt animals, for example, Google link: animals caught in fence - this can also apply to your gardens if you use mesh with a 4" opening size, like traditional field fence or farm fence for example.
There are many factors to consider when deciding what height to choose:
Is your garden 100 linear feet or less? (linear feet is footage as if you measured with a tape measure). If so, most customers choose a 6ft or 7ft fence for this size garden fence area. Deer are less likely to jump inside a small enclosed space.
Is your garden 300 linear feet or more? If so, must customers choose a 7 ½ foot finished height fence or an 8 foot fence. When deer are given more area to run and jump a taller fence is used. The trend has been to go higher and higher over the years.
Are you in an area with moderate snow and ice? You may want to add tensioning to your garden fence. Our garden fence kits with tensioning include two layers of cable - one at the top and one towards the bottom. This tensioned cable holds fence up when a force pulls down on the fence (snow, ice). It also holds tight when deer for example use their nose to push up under a fence for access.
