How to Put Up a Wire Mesh Fence?

Wire Mesh Fence have been used for centuries to keep livestock in place, but they can be used for many purposes. Essentially wire fencing is a grid of heavy-gauge wire, approximately 4 feet tall and as long as is required to cover a specific area. It may seem difficult to put up a wire fence because if it’s not properly tensioned, the fence will sag. However, the process is actually very straightforward.

Map out your fence. Walk the perimeter of where you want the fence to be and mark the ground with the spray paint at each location you want to place a post (normally around 8- to 10-foot intervals).

Use the post hole diggers to dig holes 3 feet deep and 2 feet wide at each of the locations you marked. Drop a wooden fence post into each hole and then fill around it with extra soil. Allow the posts to settle overnight.

Stretch the wire fencing in one long strip all the way around the fence posts. Tie the ends of the fence off to each respective side of the fence by wrapping the wire around the end fence posts and using the pliers to bend the wire together.

Go to the middle of the fence and start on the top wire. Attach the wire gripper and then attach the come along to the gripper. Begin tightening the come along to stretch the wire. When the factory-made kinks straighten out a bit in the wire, it has been tensioned enough. Attach the swage sleeves with the pliers and move on to the next lower wire strand. Follow this procedure until all of the horizontal wires have been tensioned. Drive staples into each post to hold the fence up and secure it along the length of its run.

Don’t drive the staples in all the way. Their only purpose is to support the fence as it expands and contracts during temperature changes.
