The Best Fence to Keep Animals Out of a Garden

When curating a garden and yard space, homeowners want that space to be respected and maintained. However, there isn’t a level of care that you can provide a yard space that will be enough to keep animals and pests away from your property entirely. Especially in gardens that contain lush produce, attracting animals is one of the caveats of creating an amazing yard. Luckily, there are numerous solutions out there for those that want to keep animals away from their property. There are many options of fences for keeping animals from intruding in your space.

 

Choose the Best Fence to Keep Animals Out of Your Garden

 

The California landscape is one with countless gorgeous natural wonders. The diversity of wildlife in the area opens the door to a variety of possible culprits that may want to eat crops or otherwise cause damage to your property. When choosing the best fence to keep animals out of your garden, it’s best to invest in a fence for animals that are actually threatening your space. Certain animals will be swayed away by different security solutions, so doing your research prior to pulling the trigger on a new fence installation is a crucial step in keeping animals away from your yard. 

 

Fences to Keep Out Large Animals

 

California boasts diverse local wildlife, which is great, but it does mean that large animals are likely to live near your property. Especially with larger animals that could provide a threat to any pets or small children, installing a fence to keep animals out of your garden and yard space is a safe choice. Large animals that tend to provide the most issues include:

 

  • Deer

  • Bears

  • Coyotes

  • Cougars

 

Especially with the amount of deer and coyotes that tend to roam California, installing coyote fencing is a great option for those trying to keep large animals away from their space. Coyotes are great climbers and some deer can jump really high, so the key to choosing the best fence against these types of animals is the height of it. 

 

Fence Options:

 

A fence to keep large animals out of your yard or garden is most effective when it is at least 5 feet tall. These fences will help prevent creatures from hopping over, provide a solid barrier to the yard aesthetically and they’ll stand up to everyday windy and rainy weather. The best suggestion for an all-rounder is a tall, sturdy chain-link fence.

Fences to Keep Out Small Animals

 

While the physically largest threat may be large animals like coyotes and bears, the damage done by smaller creatures can be just as detrimental to your space in the long run. Animals that will provide the most persistent and frequent issues will be smaller animals that are more comfortable being around people. Some smaller animals to consider include:  

 

  • Rabbits

  • Raccoons

  • Woodchucks

  • Snakes

  • Skunks

  • Opossums

  • Small rodents, like squirrels, mice, rats, moles, etc.

 

Small animals have an easy time entering your yard and munching on those vegetables you’ve been working hard on growing. Due to their size, they’re able to easily creep under and through some chain-link fences. That's why you need to make sure you choose the right fence for animals of their size when growing food.

Fence Options: 

 

If you’ve found yourself struggling to keep the smaller pests away from your space, installing a fortified and tamper-proof privacy fence to keep those animals out of your garden is a great idea. Privacy fences have fewer cracks and holes for them to sneak through, and the added perk of general privacy.
