Many gardeners often think about how to enclose their site with a fence in order to make the most of the territory along it. After all, some models of fences of the deaf type do not let the light in and give a stable shade. Not the last role is played by the cost of enclosing structures. Optimal solutions can be gitter mesh fences, chain-link fences. Photos of inexpensive fences clearly demonstrate lightweight structures and methods for decorating them.
Fences from a grid giter, fences from a grid of the chain-link. Photos of structures, their advantages
After reviewing the photo of fences for giving from grids (chain-link, giter), you can be sure that high-quality and neatly assembled fences have quite decent appearance. They combine the following advantages:
- hedges fully cope with fencing functions, preventing unwanted penetration into your territory;
- fences of light and air-permeable nets, which makes it possible to use the area along them for growing various crops, as well as to avoid conflicts with neighbors about the shading of one or another place of a foreign territory;
- constructions can be used as a base for climbing plants;
- fencing of the grid can be easily and quickly mounted, anyone can cope with the installation of the fence, even without any experience in construction;
- the cost of such fences is quite democratic and available to almost every summer resident;
- Modern polymeric coatings provide corrosion protection of mesh fences and a rather impressive service life.
Lightweight fences from the grids do not require a foundation device – for their supports it is sufficient to reliably install the pillars, driving them into the ground or concreting. Traditionally, a fence made of nets is installed to designate the perimeter and the fence of the entire backyard territory or to divide the area between neighboring cottages. The last option allows you to install the front part of the fence of more expensive materials, and between the draw a grid, which will significantly reduce the cost of building a fence.

If the owners want to make their site inaccessible for review, you can arrange the fencing of the nets with different types of climbing plants (climbing roses, clematis, ivy), bushes or decorate using a camouflage net for the fence. It is worth noting that good quality camouflage nets can last for several seasons, they are invulnerable to negative atmospheric influences and do not lose their appearance after being treated with detergent compositions.
Helpful advice! When choosing a camouflage net, give preference to a product on a nylon base. Such material is resistant to any deformation, it is more elastic and durable.
With the advent of the gitter mesh, the appearance of mesh fencing has become more refined and noble. Gitter mesh is a separate section of welded between the rods, which are fastened with special clamps to the racks. The strength of such structures depends on the convexity of the shape of the surface of the grid, due to the presence of anti-deformation stiffening ribs.
The mesh rods are made of steel wire O 3.5-5 mm. For corrosion protection wire coated with a polymer or electroplated coating. The size of the panels is traditionally 2X2.5 m, the parameter of cells is 50X100 mm. Anti-deformation fins contribute to the long-term preservation of the shape of the grid and increase its operational properties. The level of strength of the panels from the grid giter is comparable to the strength of fences made of corrugated flooring.
Helpful advice! If the standard mesh height of the gitter does not meet your needs, you can purchase material with height parameters from 530 mm to 2900 mm.
The main properties of the gitter mesh can be attributed to sufficient resistance to external factors, simple and fast installation, the possibility of replacing the failed elements without disturbing the integrity of the entire fence, the duration of operation and versatility of use. It is successfully used for fencing private areas, playgrounds, parking lots, office and industrial areas.
In the industrial sector, gitter mesh fences are used if you want to ensure good visibility of the site. To enhance the protective functions of the fence from the grid, the gitter is complemented with L-shaped holders. Subsequently, they can be fixed barbed wire, network video equipment or motion sensors. If necessary, such a system of devices can be applied to private territories.
Another advantage of the gitter mesh is the ability to choose material in a variety of colors. The most popular mesh with a green polymer coating. Fence colors close to the natural greenery perfectly with the landscape and complements the landscape. However, it is possible to choose a different shade, given your personal preferences.
The installation of the fence from the grid Hitter is carried out by installing vertical supports along the perimeter and attaching to them cassettes with a grid. The light weight of the material and the ease of attaching the mesh to metal poles allow you to install the fence yourself. The key to structural strength is the reliability and correctness of the installation of support columns.
For supports use a square or rectangular shaped tube of 60X40 mm or 60X60 mm with a wall thickness of 2 mm. Columns can be installed in several ways depending on the type of soil on the site. In the usual way, it is enough to sink the stands into the ground at 0.9-1 m, and to concrete the upper part of the submerged pole into the ground (about 20 cm from the ground level). The supports are located at a distance of 2.5 m from each other.
In the case when sandy-clay soils predominate on the site, they resort to the method of complete concreting of the supports. And if the earth is clay, it is recommended to choose the method of filling the holes around the installed pillars with rubble (boiling), followed by their compaction and pouring with concrete. After the final setting of the concrete (about 3 days), you can begin to mount the mesh panels to the supports.
Helpful advice! To make the construction of the fence strong, it is necessary to thoroughly tamp the crushed stone when installing the supports using the method of bunting.
Cassettes with mesh fixed to the posts with special U-shaped fasteners – clamps, which are included with the net. With a wrench, fasteners are clamped tightly.
The grid the chain-link remains the most actual material for a protection of seasonal dachas and house adjoining territories. The photo of the fences from the chain-link demonstrate two ways of arranging such fences. The simplest and most inexpensive option is the tension, when the grid is stretched between the supporting pillars. The second option is a sectional one, in which the fence is mounted from separate ready-made frames, inside which the grid is enclosed.
As the supporting pillars for the fence from the mesh chain-link usually use metal shaped tubes. Some craftsmen sometimes use wooden beams or logs for racks. The device of a fence from the chain-link with wooden supports is resorted in case the fence is temporary or there is an excess of wooden elements after the main construction work. But it should be noted that the appearance and durability of such fences will be inferior to counterparts with metal racks.
Work begins with the preparation of the territory and markup. At the corners of the perimeter they drive poles and stretch the construction cord. In order to calculate the required amount of mesh for the fence, it is enough to measure the length of the cord and add 5% to it for the stock of material. After that, you can mark the installation location of all racks making the distance between them is not more than 2.5 m, otherwise the grid will sag.
To install the tables, holes of at least 1 m depth are drilled, metal pillars are inserted into the pits and concreted. Next, the roll with the net is unwound on the ground next to the uprights, with one motion they lift and with the help of the wire fix one edge in several places.
Helpful advice! So that the extreme cells in the grid do not get loose, it is provided with curved ends on one side. Installing a fence from a net, the chain-link is necessary to place the grid cloth with curved ends up.
Before you stretch the netting of the chain-link to the fence, it is necessary to weld hooks to the metal supports. The grid is fixed to wooden supports with the help of nails.
Installation of supports for the sectional fence of the grid is carried out similarly to the tension method. However, the racks are used from the metal profile of a larger section due to the fact that the load on them will be greater. Frames for sections are made of welded angle. Apply angular steel 30X4, 40X5 mm. The parameters of the frame is determined based on the distance between the supports and the height of the pillars. The frame should be 10-20 cm wide and less than these values.
In order to fill with a net material a roll with a grid is rolled out and the canvas is cut out by a grinder according to the frame size. Along the extreme row of grid cells, they pull a metal rod and weld it to a vertical support. So, alternately, make with each side of a rectangular frame, each time, well pulling the grid.
The finished sections are welded to support posts with metal strips. A fragment of a plate with dimensions of 30X5 mm will suffice. The strips are welded at a distance of about 30 cm from the top of the stand and from the ground surface. After assembling the entire structure, the welding sites are carefully cleaned, coated with a primer and painted.
To learn how to make fences from the grid of a chain-link, it is enough to get acquainted with the video materials on installation and use the advice of professionals in this matter. The simplicity and ease of installation allows you to install the fence from the chain-link with your own hands. Photos of the best solutions can be easily found online for use as an example.
Despite the simple algorithm for installing fencing from a chain-link mesh can have a different appearance. The most budgetary option is a fence, as the supports of which are used hammered into the ground round columns. Here the main thing is the careful tension of the mesh, since the canvas does not have a rigid structure. The more places of fixation, the more stable will be the fence. Traditionally, such structures are made between neighboring territories.
A more reliable fence is obtained when the pillars are installed exclusively vertically and concreted. The mesh is tensioned by putting it on hooks that are pre-welded to the posts. And the broach of the horizontal reinforcing bar strengthens the structure and prevents the mesh cells from deforming.
A fence made of a chain-link mesh stretched over a metal frame of shaped tubes looks more solid. Upper and lower guides are rectangular tubes welded to the posts. This option is quite worthy to frame not only the dacha, but also a small country house. The frame can be assembled from pipes with a circular cross section.
In order to prevent the ingrowth of the mesh into the soil under the hedge, they arrange a tape base. In this case, the lower end of the mesh passes through the concrete parapet, due to which the material is less susceptible to corrosion. The line of such a fence looks smooth and clear, and if you revet a parapet with a stone, you get a rather nice construction. The cost of such a fence will be higher, but in this way it is possible to protect the territory from the penetration of small animals.
An excellent choice is a sectional fence made of mesh netting, if the territory of the site has irregularities and drops. The fences installed at different levels completely solve this problem. In addition, the frames of the sections of the fence can be painted in different colors, which will make it bright and highlight against the background of dull monophonic fences.
A relatively new type of material – plastic garden mesh for fences. Such mesh cloth is very popular in the construction industry. This versatile material is used to perform concrete screed, masonry, plastering and fencing. With the help of a decorative grid for the fence, they decorate the dacha plots, form flowerbeds, fence off recreation areas, frame fences, and also build poultry houses.
Of the main qualitative properties of the plastic garden mesh, we can note a slight weight, resistance to the effects of natural phenomena, the ability to withstand temperature changes and resist corrosion. The net canvas is conveniently transported and stored, packaging it in large rolls allows for the installation to significantly reduce material consumption due to the minimum number of connecting lines.
In addition to the high aesthetic and operational characteristics of the material, the price of a plastic garden mesh for fences is available to any buyer. Estimated cost of plastic mesh with different cell sizes:
