As a proud homeowner, you want your yard to look its best all year long. Tending to gardens and landscaping can increase your curb appeal as well as your general sense of accomplishment in the home. However, all of this hard work can be ruined by a visit from pesky garden animals. Squirrels, deer, raccoons, and various insects can get into your garden and eat its vegetation at night without you noticing. When you wake up to a devastated yard, you’ll wish you had a protective fence to keep them out sooner.
If you live in an area where wildlife is close, you will want to invest in a barrier fence to protect your lawn and garden. Below are our best options for wildlife prevention fencing at FloriFence:
Vinyl fencing is a solid privacy and barrier fence option that will keep almost all critters at bay. It is slick enough that most small animals like squirrels and raccoons have difficulty climbing it. Plus, if your fence is tall enough, it can deter animals such as deer and neighborhood strays from jumping the fence. Vinyl is also a superior privacy fence with little maintenance needed throughout the year. We highly recommend it for any homeowner experiencing persistent wildlife problems who want a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing solution.
Wood fencing is very similar to vinyl, but with a more natural look and feel. Wood has a unique advantage in that certain types can emit natural chemicals that deter pests from the garden. Cedar, for example, will deter termites and other insects and therefore protect your garden from some pest invasion. However, because it is easier to grip, it can be easier for rodents to climb over if they are in search of food. If insects are your primary problem, wood fencing can be the best fencing option for you at an affordable price.
Chain link is a practical barrier fence for homeowners in a hurry to keep unwanted visitors out. While it is easier for small rodents to penetrate, it can be an effective barrier against deer and larger animals. It is also effective if you live on the water and are concerned about alligators or other large animals wandering onto your property. Chain link is easy for many animals to climb, but it is often the quickest option if wildlife is causing safety issues for your home.
