One of the first things that new property owners must consider is how they are going to mark out the land they have bought. A lot depends on how you intend to use it. A beautiful picket fence for a backyard is no good if you are planning to rear livestock, and a wire mesh is unlikely to complement your gorgeous rose garden. But even for the savviest of property owners, deciding on what is suitable fencing can be difficult.

If this sounds familiar, you might want to make use of our online fence design tool. We put together this service so that you can make an informed choice about how you can mark out your land.

Learn the basics

The first question to ask yourself before you start your fencing career is
“What do I want to keep in or out?”
Is it a boundary fence, to keep wondering livestock off my garden, or a boundary to keep out dogs and smaller animals?
Is it a fence to keep my dog safe, or a fence for grazing sheep or cattle? Will we want to have a horse at some time in the future?

The Hello Fence builder will step you through the ideal fence for your needs.


Fence Types

Most people want a fence that serves a variety of purposes - this is why a Farm Mesh fence is the most common. The Hello Fence Builder will provide you with the appropriate Fence Mesh option.

Fence Wire

An alternative to a mesh fence, particularly for boundary fences is to use Fence wire - for example 5 smooth line wires, topped with Barbed wire. Fence wire also provides an economical way to extend a Mesh Fence. Use a 900mm high fence mesh (for smaller animals), and then top it with Smooth or Barbed Fence wire (for larger animals).

End Assembly

Many people think that a farm mesh fence is like a timber paling fence - where the strength of the fence is in the posts and rails. This is a misconception - a better analogy for a Wire fence is a cable suspension bridge. Just like a Suspension Bridge relies on its anchors for strength, a wire fence relies relies on the fence End Assembly - the fence suspends from the End Assembly

Straining

A fence should be strained up from the End Assembly before it is attached to your fence posts. The best way to strain a plain wire fence is to use a Chain Strainer, and for a mesh fence use a Mesh Straining clamp, connected to 2 Chain Strainers. See our FAQs for straining guides

Tying off your Fence

Once strained up the fence needs to be tied off. Professional contractors will have their favourite knot to tie off, for the weekend warrior, we recommend the MaxTensor wire joiner for a hassle free join.

Stockposts

Steel Stockposts provide extra strength for the fence, and will anchor the mesh to the ground - to stop it buckling up. Use a fence clip to connect the wire to the fence post, and makes sure that the wire has some movement against the fence posts. This allows for the wire to contract and expand with stock pressure or adverse weather conditions. Never thread fence wires through the hole in the fence posts! This will strip off the wire zinc coating, and inhibit fence movement.

XL Intermeadiate posts

Hello Fencing recommends XL Stockposts to be used for every 4th or 5th post. These posts are longer, heavier, and thicker than standard Stockposts, providing extra strength. In some parts of Australia, treated pine or concrete posts, performed this function. The XL Stockpost are an easier option to drive into the ground, and are fire resistant.

Post Spacing

You will need to review your land terrain, to work out your post spacing. If the land is hilly, the posts need to be closer together - this stops the fence buckling, leaving gaps for animals to enter. The standard spacing is 5 metres apart on flat land.

Electric Fencing

An electric fence is constructed in the same way as a Smooth wire fence, with the addition of insulators between the wire and the fence posts. Review our DIY Advice Section for more information
