What Kind of Fence Should You Get?

There are several factors to consider when deciding what kind of fence to install. Usually, particularly in rural settings, fences are installed to keep animals or people out of a space, or confined to that designated area.

What’s your reason for having a fence? If you’re looking to protect a crop and keep wild animals out, take a moment to think about what kinds of animals are in the area. Wild pigs, kangaroos, and other feral animals all have their own unique ways of trying to get past fences. However, there are three primary ways animals try to push through:

  • Over
  • Under
  • Through

Kangaroos, for example, will try to jump over fences, whereas dogs will dig and crawl under. Pigs often simply try to push through fences. There are differing structural designs that can prevent such attempts from being successful.


Fence with barbed wire.

This type of fence discourages people and animals from climbing over and crawling under the fence.
