Fencing Solutions That Will Keep A Pet Confined

An improperly installed fence or the use of inferior fencing panel products could lead to your dog escaping the confines of your yard. Upgrading the fence with dig deterrent products will provide you with peace of mind when your pet is unsupervised.

Digging Concerns

Some ornamental fencing products are designed predominantly to add aesthetical appeal to your property. Some fencing products contain recessed edges. The gap below a panel may provide enough space for a pet to squeeze underneath the panel. Fencing products that contain vertical rails that are spaced out could also fail at keeping a pet contained within an enclosure.

In order to curb digging concerns, fencing panels that are designed to be anchored into the ground can be installed. A concrete platform and strategically-placed bushes and plants can also deter digging along the fence line.

Fencing Contractors

A fencing contractor oversees the installation of a fence and the modification of an existing enclosure. The property where fencing will be installed will need to be leveled. Topsoil is used to backfill indentations in the land. Any fencing materials that are damaged or insufficient at providing the amount of coverage that is desired will be removed at the onset of a fencing project.

A fencing contractor may supply spiked fencing panels that each contain a bottom rail that is designed to be installed underground. Fencing that is secured in the ground will remain sturdy, plus it will not support digging activities.

A contractor may advise that a concrete barrier is installed along either side of a fence. A barrier will retain the soil that is located along either side of a fencing panel. Soil retention measures will assist with keeping fencing clean. A contractor may add a sealant to new fencing panels. A sealant will prevent damage to the fencing materials.

Landscaping Upgrades

Large bushes and plants will beautify the land, plus it will act as barriers. New bushes and plants should not be added to the land until a fencing upgrade is complete. Once new fencing materials have been installed, decisions can be made about the types of vegetation to add to the land.

If bushes and plants will be added to the interior side of the fence, the new additions need to be non-toxic. Border materials, such as pavers or bricks, can be used to create the outer edges of a display. Mulch or decorative rocks can be used to complement each bush or plant that will be added to the display.
