How to Install Panel Fences On Slopes

Panel fences are gaining popularity in Canada. Whether it's a palisade fence, ornamental fencing or one of the many welded mesh panel fences out there, we're seeing a lot more people choose this type of fence.

There are a few great reasons for that. Panel fences look great, and many offer enhanced security. But they are a little trickier to install, which means they're definitely best left for the professionals. In this article, we look at three of the ways we can install panel fences on slopes, and the pros and cons of each.

How Does Electric Fence Work?

Electric fence is not a common choice in Canada. In fact, while it's used for security in many parts of the world, here in Canada, we use it mainly for animal control. If you've ever wondered how does electric fence work, read on!

Like most Canadian fence companies, we don't do a lot of electric fence, but we can certainly supply (and sometimes install) it for our customers. Here's what you need to know.
