How to Build a Deer Fence

Benner's Gardens – How to Build a Deer Fence

Step 1: Determine the Fence Line 

Measure the linear feet to determine the amount of materials you will need to order



Step 2: Mark the Post Distance

15' apart when using heavy duty posts with poly deer fencing

10'-12' apart when using heavy duty posts with any style metal deer fencing (FIXED KNOT EXCLUDED)

8'-10' apart if using the garden posts (angle iron) *THESE POSTS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE WITH ANY STYLE METAL FENCING


Step 3: Install your Posts

Install all of your ground sleeves using the driving cap and a hammer.  Next, place all the pipes into the ground sleeves and insert the vinyl cap into the top of the pipe to prevent debris from entering the pipe.

If you are using angle iron posts, simply push post into the ground at least 1'-2'


Step 4: Install the Fencing Material

Unroll your deer fence and start attaching it to the posts using heavy ties.  Be sure to pull the fencing material until its straight and taught to the next post in line before securing it to the post.


Step 5: Install Rodent Barrier Fence **

**Only if you purchased this add-on item

Install the rodent barrier along the bottom of the already installed poly deer fencing.  You will want to 'flare' the barrier on the ground approximately 3"-6" and then attach it where it meets the poly fencing using a heavy tie. 


Step 6: Install Your Cable System

Step 7: Stake down your Fence

Use the 12" kinked ground stakes to secure the bottom of your deer fencing to the ground to prevent deer and other wildlife from pushing underneath the fence line and entering your property or garden area.
