What is a deer fence kit?
A deer fence kit is a bundle of fence parts that when assembled creates a deer fence starting from nothing. Common parts include fence posts, garden fencing, hardware to attach deer fencing to posts and ground stakes to pin the base of the deer fence to the ground (to prevent animals from going under the fence).
How is this type of fencing different from other deer fences or deer fence kits?
We specialize in fences to keep animals in or out. Our deer fence kits (depending on the options you choose) include deer fence post ground sleeves that have a set screw. Once the sleeves are installed in the ground, our round tubular posts slide into the ground sleeves and lock in with a set screw. This makes the deer fence kit permanent or removable (useful for temporary deer fences – fence is up during the growing season and taken down otherwise, leaving space to till the ground etc). Our fence kits are very customizable – different opening sizes, heights, lengths etc.
Are deer fence kits expensive?
No. You will find that our do it yourself DIY deer fence kits are much less expensive than conventional fencing (stockade, chain link, aluminum) and very customizable. Vast areas can be fenced in for a low cost per linear foot depending on the options you choose.

What are the best deer fence kits for 2023?
The best and most common metal deer fence for 2023 (compared to traditional, older deer fence types) is a 2x2 opening size tall fence to exclude deer in poly or metal paired with a 1x1 or 1/2x1/2 36 inch bottom wire. This allows for a 30 inch tall deer fence rodent barrier with 6 inches of overlap on the ground, pinned to the ground facing outwards. This deters animals like rabbits from digging up under the fence for access.
