But what about the deer eating your shrubs, your tulip bulbs and hosta plants, or when they eat off the plants in your vegetable garden or the apples in your orchard? How pretty are they?
One solution is to install a bucks county deer fence to deter the deer from making your property into the local deer café. There are several options depending on what you want to do.
A 4 foot high Bucks County deer fence will deter deer, but they can easily jump over this height. Yet I’ve had customers tell me that their 4 foot fence kept out most of the deer. If you want to take this approach, your options for Bucks County deer fence are quite broad. You could install wood or vinyl picket fence or solid fence. You could install ornamental aluminum fence or different kinds of wire fencing for your Bucks County deer fence. If this is the way you want to go, please refer to our gallery of pictures.
A 6 foot high fence will keep out most deer, although I’ve been told that if they want those apples or vegetables, they can clear a 6 foot high Bucks County deer fence. For a 6 ‘ deer fence you can choose from several types of fence. In wood you could use stockade or flat board privacy fence. You could also use ornamental aluminum fence as deer fence. A less expensive option is woven wire, attached to either metal or wood posts. This is more cost effective for longer stretches of fencing.
An 8′ high deer fence is the most likely to protect your prized plants and fruits. 8′ high wire fencing designed for deer is what we have used most often, especially when you want to fence in a long length of your property. 8’ high Bucks County deer fence wire set in the trees blends into the background. The wire openings are narrow at the bottom and grow gradually taller as you go up the wire. This helps to keep some smaller animals from going through the wire near the ground and the wider openings near the top uses less wire.
A Bucks County deer fence needs a gate or gates. For wood, aluminum or vinyl we recommend a gate made of the same material as the fence. For a wire fence, we often weld a pipe metal frame and cover it with the wire used for the fence. We also have available black frames with rigid 2″ x 4″ openings. (Please see our pictures in the gallery deer fencing)
For drive gates we can install in-ground cattle gates– a specially designed grate that neither cattle nor deer will walk across. Another option for drive gates is to install a double gate that must be opened and closed each time it is used.
