  • Dog-Pen
  • August 01, 2014
  • Recommended Product

I bought this fence to build a dog-pen (32'x28') for an apartment complex. The fence is very easy to put together, but note that the mesh-fencing will only go the distance of two top-rails at a time. For example: we chose to put posts every 8 feet on the long side (4 8-foot sections making 32 feet long) and 12 feet on the short side (2 12-foot sections and a gate making 28 feet long). The fencing provided does not allow you to chain 4 sections of fence together to reach from one end of 32 feet to the other, you have to take the middle post and use it as a terminal post. (there are brackets designed to stick out from the terminal post, effectively reducing the distance the mesh-fencing needs to go by about an inch, thus if you chain four sections of fence together, it does not reach 32 feet, it reaches about 4 inches short of 32 feet, which is too short to connect to the brackets on that end.) So what I did to avert this problem was to put the brackets on the corners, and on the middle post and this worked fine. On the 28' side I broke the fencing into two 6-panel sections and terminated each section on the post in the middle (12' in) because likewise, 3 sections of fencing don't stretch quite enough to make the 24' length I needed. Outside of that, my fence was on a slight slope, and it looked great I felt. The fencing steps with the slope and looks fantastic. The tension wire holds the fence together well - and indeed the fence is used to keep in small dogs, which the residents have praised highly. They love the new dog area, and it is working great for them. With this fencing system we got a fence that looks great, is not expensive, and is very sturdy. It does not intrude on the visual environment, and it looks way better than Chain Link, while still being see-through (which was important to us for security and observation reasons). Also, try to find a way to stand the gate up and test it before you cement it in, it's hard to measure for. Also, the hinges are a bit loose, so they let the gate hang down a little too much, we supplemented this by sticking a washer in the loose space of the bracket to tighten it up and keep it as close to upright as possible.

Pros High Quality of Material, Easy to Install, Light Weight Cons difficult to plan out without fully constructing

  • DO NOT BUY ONLINE!!! Or you will not have everything you need!! Hoping third time is a charm!
  • May 16, 2015

I'm not sure if the great reviews were based on people buying in stores, our local store does not stock this fence so I have ordered this online only....I am now placing a THIRD order to get the rest of the pieces!? NO WHERE does it state you need 2 fence post hardware kits per post.... Obviously you have to attach to both sides...so one would assume you only need 1 kit in between two posts....I have looked over the lacking instructions on this more than once...hoping I was ordering everything I needed the second time! This link even tells you to look at the yardguard website for more information....there is only a pdf instruction book...that is the EXACT same that came with the directions!?! The quality looks like it might be good...we can't return as we put the posts in already.... So beware when ordering online! It doesn't tell you that you need to buy all the pieces separately!! I am bummed as I bought this based on the great reviews!!!!

Posts are nice, but there were no caps for the top of the posts. That was a let down.

Cons no caps for top of post.

  • Good looking fence
  • August 25, 2015
  • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

The fence and gate look great. My only issue is the instructions are vague concerning additional parts required for installation. I purchased the fence system, gate and posts but did not know the wire and additional posts and caps were not included. The parts were recently received and am looking forward to completion.

Pros Stylish, Light Weight Cons instructions unclear

  • More Parts Necessary
  • September 26, 2015

Unless you want to build a small triangle fenced area, you will need to buy more parts and accessories. I'm glad I took all the parts and attempted to put them together and get an idea what I have or needed. Come to find out the end caps are separate, you need to buy the accessory kit in order to put the fencing to the posts and that you still need a tension wire. To finish it off. I'm spending roughly around $400-$500 for everything. I might as well hired someone to build it for me. I'm guessing this is why Home Depot put these products on clearance.

The fencing is medium-duty, I would say, with a medium-gauge painted wire panels and plastic clips to join sections. It's certainly able to stand on its own, but it is not as stiff or heavy as a galvanized wire panel fence joined with steel clips that I have from earlier years.

  • One rail came damaged.
  • June 07, 2017
  • Recommended Product

The framework kit had everything we needed. We ordered 2, one was completely fine. But the other had dents on one of the rails. The bummer is, it isn't carried in the store, so we didn't want to put a hold on a half installed fence, so we just used them damaged :(.

Specifications for gate posts installation does not allow for gate latches to actually close. We set the post perfectly and the gate latches do not have enough clearance to close (last step in installation). Disappointing to spend generous amount of money and enormous amount of time on product that fails to secure gates.

The website was very vague about everything needed to complete fencing project. Once I had all the materials needed I was very impressed with how easy it was to assemble and it’s looks.
