Deer Fences


In the heart of nature, deer are a sight to behold. Their graceful movements and gentle demeanor make them a favorite among many. However, for homeowners, these majestic creatures can often spell trouble. From nibbling on cherished plants to causing unexpected hazards on roads, deer can be more than just a gentle visitor. This is where deer fencing steps in, offering a protective barrier for your property while allowing these creatures their freedom.

Deer are creatures of habit. They often traverse the same paths daily, especially during the tranquil hours of dawn and dusk. Their impressive jumping ability means that a mere fence might not always do the trick. However, deer are also cautious animals. A well-placed, visible fence can deter them, making them rethink their path.

The Salem Fence Installation Approach

At Salem Fence, we believe that installing a deer fence is not just about erecting a barrier; it’s about understanding the landscape, the deer’s common paths, and ensuring the fence integrates seamlessly with the surroundings.

Our approach begins with a meticulous site assessment, understanding the unique challenges and advantages of your property. This hands-on approach ensures that the fence is not just functional but also complements the beauty of your property.

Features Every Deer Fence Should Have

When considering a deer fence, there are certain features that can make all the difference:

Height: Considering the remarkable ability of deer to jump, it is advised to have a fence that reaches a height of 7-8 feet. This will  provide effective containment or exclusion.

Material: It is crucial to select a fence material that is not only durable and resilient to withstand the elements and potential impacts but also harmonious with the surrounding environment. A fence that blends well with its surroundings is aesthetically pleasing and less intrusive to the natural landscape.

Visibility: A fence that is easily discernible is generally less likely to be challenged by a deer. Clear visibility acts as a deterrent, making deer less inclined to approach or attempt to cross the barrier

Beyond Deer: The Many Benefits of Deer Fencing

While the primary purpose of a deer fence is undoubtedly to deter these graceful yet potentially garden-damaging creatures, the advantages of such a fence extend far beyond just deer prevention:

  • Aesthetic Structure: A deer fence isn’t just functional; it’s also a design element. When chosen and installed thoughtfully, it can add a structured look to your landscape. By creating clear boundaries, it can enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of your garden or yard, making it look more organized and well-maintained.
  • Deterrence for Other Animals: Deer aren’t the only animals that might find your garden enticing. Rabbits, groundhogs, and even some birds might see your garden as a potential food source. A deer fence, especially one with smaller mesh sizes, can act as a barrier against a variety of animals, ensuring your plants, flowers, and vegetables remain untouched and thrive.
  • Increased Property Value: A well-maintained garden can significantly boost the value of your property. By protecting your garden from deer and other animals, a deer fence indirectly contributes to maintaining, if not increasing, your property’s worth.
  • Peace of Mind: There’s a certain tranquility in knowing that your garden is protected. With a deer fence in place, you can enjoy the beauty of your garden without the constant worry of it being invaded or damaged by wildlife.

Maintenance Made Easy

A deer fence, with its robust design, stands as a testament to durability and longevity. However, even the sturdiest of structures appreciate a touch of maintenance. By conducting regular inspections, homeowners can easily identify and address any potential weak points or signs of wear and tear. This proactive approach not only prolongs the life of the fence but also ensures it continues to serve its primary purpose effectively. An occasional cleaning session using a mild detergent can rejuvenate its appearance, making it look pristine and well-maintained. Moreover, taking the time to ensure that the fence remains upright and taut not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also maximizes its effectiveness in keeping those unwanted visitors at bay.
