What You Need to Know About Yard Gard Fencing

March 20, 2017 | by Debbie Page

Yard gard is a general term used for a type of fence that encloses a yard. Not all yard gard products are created equal.

We recommend black vinyl coated welded wire fencing, also known as yard gard. The vinyl coating helps the fence stand up to the elements so it doesn't rust as quickly. The vinyl coating ensures the fence looks better longer. The black color helps the fence blend into the surrounding environment. Black coating "hides" a fence better than green vinyl coating in most environments. The welds of the fence make the fence strong so it doesn't bend. If you choose smaller openings, the fence will be more difficult to climb for critters. Also, there are no sharp edges to injure people or animals. 

Vinyl Coated Welded Wire Yard and Garden Fencing is Better for the following reasons:

  1. Vinyl protects against the elements.
  2. Black vinyl helps the fence blend into the environment.
  3. Welds help create a very strong fence.
  4. Smaller openings prevent fence climbing.
  5. No sharp edges keep people and animals protected.

In other words, high quality vinyl coated wire meshes are strong and durable - perfect for lawn and garden fencing, pet enclosures, boundary fence, children's play areas and many other uses. The heavy, resilient, flexible black PVC coating is permanently bonded to the galvanized core wire. It will not crack or peel and is unaffected by extreme temperatures. UV inhibitors retard degradation from sunlight. The black color is very unobtrusive when installed. With the double protection of galvanized core wires and vinyl coating, these lawn and garden fence meshes will withstand the elements for many years.

Three mesh sizes are available: 2"x2", 1-1/2"x4" and 2"x4". The narrow mesh openings discourage fence climbing. We also offer different guages: 11, 12 1/2, 14 and 16. Check out our Lawn & Garden fences.
