These add-on kits will only work in conjunction with another kit (Fence Kit With Top 1 in this case). Some of the hardware in your original kit will be re-used and replaced with new hardware from this kit.
Bottom wire: These fence kits with top don't include chew protection, which may not be necessary or apply to your project. If you need to add steel wire to the bottom of this fencing, please visit our metal fence rolls page and select the fencing type. If you do decide to add it, here's what's suggested:
2ft Critterfence Steel Web 1" opening size, used to exclude most small animals and rabbits
3ft Critterfence Steel Web 1" opening size, same as above but added height for groundhogs/woodchucks, dog containment or coyote exclusion
4ft Critterfence Steel Web 1" opening size, same as above but added additional width. This is typically used by customers that want to increase the amount of overlap on the ground from the standard 6" or wish to bury part of the fencing
2, 3 and 4ft tall 1/2" Opening Steel Grid: Used for the same applications above only this mesh has a smaller opening size. This metal bottom wire fencing is used to exclude even the smallest animals like moles/voles and snakes. It's roughly twice as heavy and strong as our Steel Web fencing.
You can also choose a different fence kit that uses all metal fencing, Fence Kit With Top 4.
Posts are round galvanized inside and out then black powder coated - no-dig sleeves are heavily galvanized inside and out for extreme long life - ground sleeves go into the ground 30", the finished height of the fence posts is the height above ground (for example, 7.5ft finished height is 7 1/2 feet above the ground once the sleeve is in the ground and the post has been installed into the sleeve).
All posts with ground sleeves can be installed permanently or made removable. No dig ground sleeves get driven into the ground with a sledge hammer (available here on our website if needed: sledge hammer), posts then slide inside the sleeve. To remove posts for seasonal protection or to move your fence: 1) cut fence ties holding fence to posts 2) roll up fencing 3) slide post up out of sleeve. To make posts permanent, use the galvanized locking sleeve spikes included with each kit to prevent the post from spinning or coming up out of the post (instructions provided with each kit). Ground sleeve caps to cover ground sleeves when no posts are installed are also available here on our website: ground sleeve caps
For rocky or heavily compacted ground, we suggest using a san angelo digging bar to pilot the hole for sleeves (instructions with kit). They are available here on our website if needed: san angelo digging bar. You can also use a powered drill or hammer drill with our sleeve auger bit found here: sleeve auger
These fence kits are designed to be installed on level and flat areas. If you're installing this over an area that has slope or is pitched in one direction, some cutting or modifying of the fence post height will be required. This may make the overall height of your fence shorter. For example, if you are installing in an area that slopes higher to lower, to make the enclosure level, you would cut the front posts 1" for example, the middle posts 1/2" for example and leave the rear posts.
These fence kits start with approximately 7 feet of overhead clearance. The side posts are 7 1/2 feet out of the ground but some space is needed for the framing and side bracing. Access gates are available separately; select 7 foot tall gates or shorter for proper installed clearance.
