How do I install mesh or chain link fencing?
Start by installing an anchor post every 50 metres or where there is a change of direction, with intermediate posts in between every 2-3 metres. Wrap and secure the mesh fencing to the first anchor post, and unravel, attaching the mesh to each fence post, before wrapping around the final anchor post. Check the mesh fencing is attached properly to each post with battens or u-nails.
