How do I cut wire mesh fencing?
To cut either wire or plastic mesh, you will need wire cutting pliers or bolt cutters to ensure a smooth cut.
How do I install wire mesh 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 fencing to the first anchor post, and unravel, attaching the mesh to each fence post, before wrapping around the final anchor post. Check the fencing is attached properly to each post with battens or u-nails.
What can I cover the edge of fencing with?
Sharp edges should be folded up and under the bottom edge of a mesh fence, allowing grass to grow up to the fencing. Alternatively, you can cover the bottom edge of the wire mesh with timber boards.
When installing fencing, how far apart should the posts be positioned?
Posts should be 2-3 metres apart.
