Southern California is known for its amazing geography. Some of us are lucky enough to live in beautiful areas surrounding canyons, hills, and other rural areas. But just like every rose has its thorns, these gorgeous landscapes come with thorns of their own. Snakes, bugs, and coyotes are among the indigenous species that commonly inhabit these spaces. Encounters with these animals are inevitable for those of us that live, work, and play in these areas, but you can minimize these encounters by installing wildlife-proof fencing from StackWall!
Wildlife-proof Fencing: Rattlesnakes
According to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (www.dfg.ca.gov), the best way to keep rattlesnakes out of your yard is a “rattlesnake proof” fence (https://stackwall.com/concrete-fence-products/). This fence should be at least 3 feet high, either solid or mesh, and no larger than one-quarter inch. The bottom of the fence should be buried a few inches in the ground. StackWall’s solid, stylish, yet functional fences are made of high-grade concrete. StackWall panels can be buried as deeply as you desire.
Crafty Coyotes Outwit Most Security Fences
Coyotes have the physical ability to go under, through, or over the tops of many types of fences. While coyotes generally prefer to dig under fences or go through gaps in fencing located typically at gates or washouts. Some coyotes have the inclination to jump or climb, particularly at corners or where cross-braces provide a foothold.
To protect your property against coyotes, select a fence that is at least 5 ½ feet tall. When you choose StackWall, you’ll be pleased to learn that we can build your fence up to 8 feet high if necessary. To prevent these voraciously clever intruders from digging under your StackWall, we typically suggest burying your wildlife-proof fencing at least 4 – 6 inches.
StackWall protects your property and your loved ones, particularly children and domesticated pets, by helping to deter dangerous critters. By preventing potentially dangerous wildlife encounters, you’ll keep your property and loved ones safer, and provide everyone in your household with more peace of mind.
