A woven wire fence is a favorite around many farms for its strength and durability. You’ll find it around gardens, pools, and pastures of all sizes. Woven wire is typically sold in mesh rolls, giving farmers some flexibility in how far apart to space fence posts as well as how large (or small) to make an enclosure. In order to work with woven wire fencing, you’ll need to know how to remove fence knots. These are the intersections of vertical and horizontal wires that are affixed using a monarch knot or square deal knot. Here, we’ll briefly explain both methods so that you can get the flexibility that you need to work with this fencing.
With hundreds of different options, selecting the right fence for your farm can be a challenge. An easy way to start a fence project is to understand fence basics by talking to a local Red Brand dealer. Speaking face to face with an experienced representative will ensure that your animals are contained with the best fence possible. They can even provide helpful tips if you are installing your own fence, or point you towards the closest Red Brand Certified Fence Installer.
