Fencing is important for any piece of property, more so if you would like to protect your property from intruders, whether human or animal. The advantages of the right fencing can be easily seen, and whether you go for wooden fencing, wire netting or electric fencing, you can be sure that your property,

 its occupants and whatever assets you have will be duly protected at all times. But there is something to be said about wire fencing which makes it the ideal choice of many property owners, particularly those who are keen on keeping away specific intruders such as dogs and other predatory animals. Wire fencing comes with a lot of advantages, and numerous property owners make use of it for various reasons. If you are thinking of changing or replacing the fencing in your property, here’s what you should know about the benefits of wire fencing. 

Easy installation 

The thing about wire fencing – and perhaps the biggest reason why it’s a premier choice in fencing for many – is its ease of installation. A wire fence can be erected with a lot less effort compared to other forms of fencing or other materials such as bricks or stone. The time you spend installing wire fencing can also a lot less compared to the installation of other materials because all you need to do is buy the netting and then attach it to posts or a frame. You don’t need to spend as much on labour, which can also save you money, and you don’t need to come up with an extensive or complex construction plan, either.


Another premier benefit of wire fencing or wire netting is the fact that it’s immensely affordable. It is much less expensive than other fencing materials such as wood, brick, or stone or even relatively inexpensive materials such as concrete or PVC. If you are on a budget but would like to benefit from sturdy and secure fencing without breaking the bank, then wire fencing is definitely a very good choice.


Wire fencing is also immensely durable, making it a great choice if you want your fencing to last – and to last for a long time indeed. Wire fencing or netting nowadays is very solid and sturdy and corrosion resistant, and can deal with snow, rain, wind, hail, intense heat, and so on. 

Good visibility 

There are different types of wire fencing available today, from hexagonal wire fencing to line wire to stock fencing, barbed wire, and more, but all of these have one thing in common as well: they can provide good visibility. Wire fencing, unlike other kinds of fencing, is easy to see through, so you can get a good view of what is happening outside your property or the surrounding area with just a simple glance. You still have a good and robust border, of course, but it doesn’t hamper your view of the outside. If you have children or pets playing in your garden or field, you would want to see the outside as well so you can be sure of what is going on around your property.
