Custom Netting for Garden Protection Against Deer and Animals

Custom Netting for Garden Protection Against Deer and Animals

At Gourock.com we specialize in supplying netting for lots of different unique and specific needs that our customers have, including nets that are needed for garden protection applications.  A lot of gardens and outdoor planting locations end up having nuisance issues with deer, birds, and other animals that end up getting into the area and eating or destroying plants, flowers, and vegetables.  Gardners are always coming up with effective solutions for a variety of different situations that they encounter within their garden area, and are consistently adapting to the outside world in order to achieve the best possible results from their work.  One of these particular situations that we hear about often here at Gourock is the need to protect garden areas from deer, and here is a recent example of a great garden protection solution that utilizes nylon netting.

This Gourock.com customer had a scenario in-which his planter boxes needed to be reinforced against the local deer that were coming onto his property and eating his plants.  Some of the main considerations for his project were that the protection method needed to be effective, convenient, durable, minimally visually obstructive, and with a professional appearance.  His approach was constructing a series of plant box fences, with all four sides of each box featuring an independent square fence section.  He used metal tubing and corner fittings to construct the frames of each fencing section, incorporating bottom ground-spikes in order to sink the framing section into the planter box soil.  This allowed for dependable support for the framing, as well as convenient removal/access as needed.

Within each framing section, there is nylon netting installed - which adds the protective barrier defense and deterrence from roaming deer.  The netting is affixed to the tubing with black plastic zip-ties, and he used 20 ties per net - with each framing section being right around 3'-5" X 3'-5" in sizing.

For this garden application, the best netting selection to use was the #12 X 1-3/4" DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon, prepared in a square mesh pattern.  This #12 nylon netting has a very minimal visual appearance, making it an optimal choice for the "most invisible" effect.  The DuPont nylon is a very strong material, and the tensile rating for the #12 twine is a robust 116 lbs., which means that the netting has a very high strength characteristic while remaining a thin twine.  It is a UV stable material, and the netting features a latex/urethane bonding against moisture.  The mesh size of 1-3/4" square is really effective in blocking deer from getting their mouths through the barrier.

The way that this netting was ordered through the Gourock.com Custom Netting Online Calculator was as a longer overall bulk length of material that he could then cut-from on his own for each individual framing section.  This #12 X 1-3/4" nylon was prepared as a 3'-5" X 83' length, and the square mesh pattern made it a convenient choice to cut each smaller section from it as needed.  You can order this netting, or any of our available twine and mesh sizes, directly online through our Gourock.com site and store.  100% Made in USA, and prepared per-order according to any dimensions you need.

Your project turned out really great Brett, awesome job!  Many thanks again for your business, and it was really nice working with you!
