Yeah, this is a tired subject but I really DO need advice.
The last fence we built was a 7' suburbia privacy deal /w lattice on top–It's been great for the dogs & looks good, too. But expensive and very hard work.
Now I'm moving from the Middle of Nowhere to the Ends of the Earth: a half acre on the edge of a massive county forest, no nieghbours for miles. I'm not as young (or wealthy!) as I once was, and won't have family or friends nearby to help.
My question to those of you in more rural areas: Is there any type of tall & inexpensive wire livestock fence that B's won't climb like ladders? Or any way to rig the top of chain link (safely, no barbed wire obviously!) so they can't get over the top if they climb? Maybe a circular plastic topper their claws would slip on when they got to the top? I'm looking for 100% containment.
I'd like to securely fence my entire property so they can run around while I garden etc. and I don't have to worry about someone getting out. I'd like to keep critters OUT, too--I don't want to worry about them encountering a skunk or racoon if I let them out after dark. If you have any suggestions for building board fences easier or more inexpensively, I'm open to that as well.
Thanks in advance!
