When you live in a rural area, there is often the need to delimit your housing unit through the installation of a fencing net: this has the task of separating private properties from each other and protecting the house from any intruders. The work involved in setting up a fence isn’t particularly difficult, but often you don’t know where to start. Therefore, we will take care of illustrating how to proceed, learning the assembly techniques, and thus saving time, but above all, money through the following steps.
You will need these to assemble a fencing net
- Wire mesh
- Iron wires
- Vineyard cables
To carry out work in a workmanlike manner, it is necessary to use a special tool called a hoist: it is an object consisting of a system of pulleys suitable for lifting loads. It is by no means easy to use, so you will necessarily need the help of an experienced person. It is possible to buy a hoist at a relatively low cost at a DIY store. In this regard, it is advisable to choose one of the simpler models, as it is less difficult to use and cheaper than electric ones.
At this point, you need to get a net to be mounted on the metal poles. Then you will need to install the latter in the ground, planting them at a distance of about 2.5 m from each other, measuring the length of the fence delimiting the perimeter with a horde. Subsequently, it will be necessary to affix a number corresponding to three guide rods: upper, central, and lower, on the same line indicated by the holes on the posts. As tie rods, plastic-coated iron wires can be used, with a diameter greater than that of the net.
The tie rods can be laid using simple vineyard cable pulls, available at a common hardware store. As soon as they are stretched, the net will have to be pulled. At this point, the hoist will come into play: the net will be taught and without sagging, which could instead occur in the context of a possible assembly by hand.
Should difficulties arise in the use of the tool, the fence can be drawn in a different way, i.e., by laying the first 3-4 meters of net tied in some upper points. It is necessary to let go so that the roll remains upright, go and tie the net on the head along the entirety of the first pole, then fix it definitively to the cables, keeping it well under tension and knotting it on the remaining scaffolding. The same procedure must be repeated several times, depending on the fence’s size, until the entire structure is completed.
