Sooooo. I’m installing woven wire fence about 9 feet beyond the existing high tensile in hopes of keeping him for getting in really big trouble. The last step in fence construction is installation of the wire. Use the following general procedure:. When setting posts on the curve, slope them outward about 2 inches. Attach the wire to the side of the post facing the outside of the curve. Are you dealing with a lot of uneven ground, Fleck? Are you pulling a straight line off the ground or contouring with the ground? If you contour with the ground too much and the ground is rolling, you can end up with extra fence at the top if you follow a dip, if that makes any sense.
I’m planning on installing some woven wire fencing this spring.my current estimate is three 330′ rolls. If it’s in a valley, I wire a small boulder onto the posts, to keep the wire from naturally wanting to pull up out of the ground. I would never use cattle panels for unlevel terrain of any distance. Last weekend I stretched the first line of fencing in the second pasture. I have several do-dads for twisting the end of the wire back on itself, and I like three of them well enough to keep them all in my pocket and switch between them as needed: the Kencove wire twist tool, the Kencove splicing tool, and the FencePro tool. But I prefer to do a lot more, purely for aesthetic reasons, as I don’t like the look of the way field fence will fold down in some spots if it’s running over uneven ground. I’m going to bid a job that requires woven field type fence, but I’ve never put any up before. If you are going on hills or uneven ground, you have to travel the length of wire to make sure it is not getting caught on the ground, lifting it up once and a while.
How to Install Chain Link Fence on Uneven Ground. Unroll approximately one foot of the fencing material and attach it to the first terminal post using metal latching and wire. Construction costs for a commercially installed woven and barbed wire fence range from 90 to 2. It’s cheaper and easier to install than rigid vinyl, but can wrinkle slightly when installed on uneven ground. Whether you want to keep things in or keep things out, a chain-link fence is just the thing.
Woven Wire Fencing
Do this by installing a post where the slope changes and cutting the fence just after it passes this post. If only using wire to maintain the top of the fence, you still do the same. When fence companies install fencing on ground that is uneven, they will use a surveyor to mark the heights on a land survey. He installed his first electric fence in the early 1980’s and implemented management intensive grazing in 1987. The posts are sunk 36 inches into the ground, or one third the overall height of the fence, backfilled with dirt, then set with concrete for stability. Pasture fencing for cattle require simple barbed-wire or high-tensile fences, whereas for pigs, goats and sheep, pasture fencing requires page wire up to a 3 to 5 feet (0. Barbed wire fencing with barbed wire installed alone in four to six or more-wired fences, smooth-wire fence in the form of high-tensile or low-tensile fencing (this type of fencing is often electrified) or a combination of smooth and barbed wire–one strand of barbed wire usually runs across top and sometimes at differing levels, or one strand of smooth wire runs across the top with the bottom wires barbed. The first wire should be around 8 to 10 inches (20.3 to 25.4 cm) off the ground. More posts will be needed for more uneven terrain such as the edge of a hill or into a valley.
