This is a general installation procedure. Actual method may vary
with property being protected.
Trees and posts
To install the most economical way it is preferred to
fasten fence and cables to existing trees.
Where trees are not available posts must be installed,
any type of post will work as long as it is structurally able to support the fence. Many
styles of posts are available at your local hardware or gardening center.
The distance between trees and posts should not exceed
Corner posts should have guy wires to add extra
strength to support the fence.
Tension cables are made of steel for a long life.
Run the tension cable at 7' 6". Be sure to fasten
firmly to trees and posts. The cable should be very tight with no sagging.
Fasten top of fence to tension cable with cable ties.
Fence should be fastened to cable no less than every 5
Fence can be fastened to posts with cable ties.
Nail fence to trees with 3" galvanized nails or
Secure fence to ground using ground staples no less
than every 10 feet, depending on the grade of the land.
NOTE: Because this fence is almost invisible, small
strips of white cloth should be tied to the fence at the 4 foot level for the first two
months after initial installation. This is done to alert the deer (and other people) to
the fact that a fence is now guarding the property. After that you can remove the strips
to have a practically invisible fence that keeps the deer from eating your vegetation.
