How does poly deer fencing compare to metal deer fencing?
Both have advantages and disadvantages. Poly deer fence is lightweight, strong and impervious to some chemicals that will hurt metal fence (road salt – or salt spray from the ocean for example, or round up type herbicide type products) and requires fewer posts per linear foot of fence. Poly deer fencing is also less expensive than metal fence. Poly fence also works well when suspended from trees – poly can flex slightly and give with tree movement. Poly fence also does not have memory – for example, if you mash it up then release it, it will spring back to it’s natural square shape. Poly deer fence is not chew proof – it’s chew resistant, but not chew proof even in the stronger variants. Metal deer fence is heavy, more expensive and requires more posts per linear foot. It also has memory – if you bend metal fence, it stays bent, unlike poly fence. Metal fence is also more chew resistant than poly fence. A very popular combination is to use poly deer fence paired with a shorter, smaller opening size metal fence chew barrier on the bottom.
