For deer barrier netting, the lighter-weight nylon nets with the larger mesh sizes are the most popular, functional, and recommended. So the two selections that fulfill most all deer barrier netting orders are the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting, and the #12 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting. We supply these options according to most any dimensions you need, and they are composed of the highest quality DuPont® type 66-728 nylon. 100% Made in the USA, these nylon netting types maintain a very higher tensile strength rating while featuring the benefits of a relatively thin twine thickness. This means you get a very strong and durable netting, while minimizing weight, visibility, effect of wind/elements, and cost. The Gourock site does provide a deer netting specific page to reference, and it allows for the pricing/ordering of any sizing you need:

Deer and bird barrier netting are equally popular in both rural and urban environments, as both types of living areas have their own individual concerns with deer and birds. A recent local customer here in Bellingham has a chicken coop and garden, and also a big need for both types of animal exclusion. For the deer netting, the primary purpose is to block-off the entire surrounding area to keep them from entering the garden area entirely. And for the chickens, the surrounding deer barrier nets keep them contained within the overall space as well. But in addition to that, we have a lot of predatory birds here in Bellingham, primarily eagles and hawks. This customer, like many others in the same situation, require a bird exclusion netting to cover the top of the chicken coop area to keep the predatory falcons out.
Here is a provided photo of the garden/coop and the netting he installed. The surrounding deer barrier net is the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting, and it is suspended and hung between a series of general in-ground fence posts. He used a spool of the #60 nylon twine to weave/lace through the top meshes of the netting, acting as a nice support and border for overall length of net.
The bird netting cover over the top is from the #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting. At Gourock.com we can supply either of these particular netting types according to your preferred dimensions - no problem at all.
Looks really great Pat - thank you again!
