Hold the wire in place on the fence and apply the first staples to the post. Wear heavy gloves for the job to protect your hands from the wire. Unroll a couple of feet of wire, pulling it taut, and then staple to the fence rails. Keep unrolling and stapling, allowing about 24 inches between staples.

Similarly, how do you attach a wire fence to a split rail?

Cut a long length of heavy-gauge wire, wrap it around the wire fence and a wooden rail or post and twist the wire's ends to secure the materials together. Placing a piece of fabric between the wire and wood prevents the wire from cutting the wood.

Also asked, can chicken wire keep dogs out?

Buried chicken wire will deter even the most obsessive digger. Digging may be a natural doggy behavior, but it's also a dangerous one. However, a roll of chicken wire and little elbow grease will stop your digging pooch in his tracks. Dig a 12-inch deep, 6-inch wide trench along the bottom of the fence.

How do you secure wire mesh to wood?

Hold the wire mesh in place, or have a friend hold it for you, and then press an industrial staple gun -- with staples slightly smaller than the depth of your frame -- onto the top corner of the mesh. Pull the trigger and insert a staple into the top left corner, and then the top right corner.

How do you attach mesh to a fence?

Attach the mesh to T-posts with wire ties or baling wire. Attach the mesh at the top of the post, in the middle of the post, and at the bottom of the post. Fencing can be attached to wooden posts with wire or with a heavy-duty staple gun. A gate will work best if attached to a post set in concrete.

How deep should a T post be?

Typically, in part to ensure that posts lodge below the frost line, experts call for a hole deep enough to submerge the bottom third of the post below ground. For a six-foot-tall post, therefore, you would dig a hole two feet deep. The ideal diameter, meanwhile, should measure three times the width of the post.
