While garden fencing will not need to have the same strength and stability as a farm fence designed to contain livestock, it still needs to be sturdy and strong enough to provide security and deter criminals. The garden fence might also be expected to ensure the family pets are kept inside the designated garden area and that small children do not find their way into the street (or into an adjacent property). It is important that you pay just as much attention to the integrity of your garden fencing installation as you would to any other security feature on your property.
The typical garden fence is made of wires and have fencing posts and droppers to ensure that the entire system is kept sturdy and in place. You can have fencing droppers installed at various distances to ensure that the fence is taut and that the wire strands are secured the correct distance from each other. In many instances, garden fences are electric fences and the non-conductive plastic droppers can be used to keep strands in place with no risk of shorting. In this way, you can have the fence connected to your alarm system and an armed response company, and it can be set up to trigger the alarm when tampered with. The problem with opting for metal droppers in this situation is that they conduct electricity and require the electrified strands to be separately insulated. You will also find that opportunistic criminals will steal the metal droppers to sell them for scrap metal. In the long run, repairs to your garden fence and replacing the droppers every so often can translate into a major expense.
To eliminate both of these problems, consider investing in our range of plastic droppers. They are perfect for the typical garden fence application. These droppers are grooved to ensure wire strands are located snugly and securely and are held at the right tension and the correct distance apart. This is important for the stability of the fence, which can sometimes lose tension over time. It is important to take precautions to ensure that your garden fence is maintained in a serviceable condition, and remains strongly integral in extended service. A properly installed and maintained garden fence can be expected to last for many years.
