This page is dedicated to the woven wire style farm fencing that is used on both farm and residential country settings.

On the farm, this type of fence often has a single strand of barb wire along the top and sometimes a single electric fence wire at animal shoulder height to keep a horse or cow from scratching / rubbing, and knocking the fence down.

This style fence is very popular at country cabin getaway homes in the mountains for keeping the dog home. It maintains the country look and feel that you can't get with chain link fence. The beauty of this style fence is that it practically disappears from sight with the woods as a backdrop.

I also do a lot of 3 and 4 rail board and post fence, sometimes called horse fence, and multi strand barb wire fence plus electric livestock fence. Follow the highlighted links for more details.

4 ft. tall hog wire field fence with round wood corner post and metal T-post


3 to 4 inch round pressure treated post set in concrete with a strong wire diagonal bracing create the corners and H-bracing between which the woven wire is tightly stretched and stapled. Metal T-post are then set at 10 foot intervals along the length of fence between the bracing to hold the fence upright. The combination of ease of installation of the T-post and the economical cost of “ hog wire ” field fence fabric and supplies makes this a relatively inexpensive fence for covering large acreage and large mountain lots.

The “ hog wire “ fabric pictured here starts with 2 inch high by 6 inch wide spacing between the individual wires at the bottom, and the spacing gets larger the higher up you go until they measure approx. 6 in. X 6 in. at the top - great for large dogs, but for smaller dogs I would advise using “ horse wire “ field fence which maintains a 2 in. x 4 in. spacing throughout.

Tubular mesh Gates available in galvanized, and painted red, green, blue, and black finishes make the perfect combo to go with this type of fence. These gates can be purchased in 4, 6, 8, 12, and 16 foot widths and can be used in two's to make double drive gates of any combination.

4 ft tall hog wire field fence in Blue Ridge GA

Extra large post were used to keep the fence upright on the soft steep earth embankment by setting 8 ft. post over 3 ft. into the ground, secured in concrete.

6 ft tall woven horse wire fence with round wood post

WOVEN HORSE WIRE also known as “NO CLIMB FENCE” because the holes between the wires are too small for horses and people to insert a foot.

This customer in the Coosawattee River Resort in Ellijay, GA wanted to create a deer free garden area, so he chose to use 6 ft. tall WOVEN HORSE WIRE  fastened to round wood post set in concrete. He called a few weeks later and said he was delighted with the fence, so I guess the deer are staying out! Fresh garden goodies in the Spring might make the deer change their minds!

6 ft. tall woven horse wire fence on all wood post

6 foot tall woven horse wire attached to 4 inch round wood post. This fence is incredibly strong and with the close 2 x 4 inch spacing between the wires, this fence will keep the smallest of dogs home.

GOAT and LAMB fence fabric has a 4” x 4” opening consistent from top to bottom


Here is a 4 foot tall fence constructed from 4 inch round wood corner post secured in concrete with heavy duty diagonal wire bracing that keeps the corners standing upright as the metal fence fabric is tightly stretched from corner to corner. Once stretched, the fabric is then tied to metal T-post which have been driven into the ground at 10 foot intervals along the fence line. This fence also incorporates an inexpensive single strand of braided electric fence wire along the top around the entire perimeter of the fence which is attached to an electric fence generator putting out around 9600 volts, a good deterrent for any wildlife.

All of the “woven wire” type of fencing, including hog wire, horse wire, goat and lamb wire, orchard wire, are exactly what the name implies; the horizontal and vertical wires are actually woven around each other to create a very strong fabric.
The “welded wire” type of fencing have the horizontal and vertical wire simply laying across each other with a weld at the junction holding them together. This weld is easily broken and the wire itself used in the production of welded wire fence fabric is of a thin gage that will be cut in half if hit by a power weed trimmer.

Woven wire cost approx. $50 per 100 linear feet more than welded wire, but if you have a situation where you will want to cut the grass along the fence line, you should consider the heavier more expensive woven wire fence products.
