How to Install a Netting Fence

A netting fence is an electric, portable fence that arrives to your door as a complete, preassembled system. It keeps out ground-based predators like dogs, coyotes, raccoons, skunks, foxes, opossums and even bear (if properly energized). It’s easy to move and relocate and can be cut to length with high-tensile wire cutters. Go here

The netting is held by line posts that have steel spikes at the base that are inserted into the soil for support. Line posts are spaced along the netting, and they’re often positioned at a 45-degree angle to one another to train the net to follow the contour of the land. These posts also help reduce the amount of power drained from the net by weeds and other vegetation.

If you’re working on a slope, it can help to have someone holding the end of the net while you install the corner posts. This makes it easier to keep the netting taut and prevents it from becoming a tangled mess.

Once you’ve got the corner posts in place, it’s time to start installing the line wires. It’s important to double-check that the netting is lined up straight on the post before driving the fence staples in. When you’re done, the corner posts should be firmly attached to the netting and you can proceed to the next post. On long runs, it’s good to install a support post every 30-50 ft (9.1-15.2 m). This can be a wooden post or a metal T post, depending on the look you’re going for or what your budget allows.
