This battery powered garden electric fence kit is mainly used for protecting ponds from herons but increasingly also used to protect flower beds and vegetable patches from inquisitive domestic and wild animals alike.
There are 10 sturdy green plastic posts which are 70cm long and stand 53cm high in the ground. These have 5 insulated lugs which hold twine or 20mm tape at regular intervals. The conducting line we use is a 200m roll of green poly-twine which will allow for plenty of lines to be used going round the pond.
The energsier is the Fenceman DP350b. This comes with it's own stand/integrated earth spike and 4 x D cell batteries so it works straight out of the box. There are also connection cables to connect to the fence, to a seperate earth stake should you ever need to and cables to connect the unit to a 12v battery for higher power. More info on this energiser can be seen here
We also include an 8 level voltage tester and a warning sign to hang on your fence.Tip
When using around ponds, best results are achieved when the posts are inserted close to the waters edge and several lines are mounted on the plastic posts. The lines don't need to be particularly taught but they do need to be kept clear of vegetation as this will earth the power. If a more permanent fence is needed, then some thin wooden posts in the corners with a few ring insulators will make good anchor posts and keep the plastic posts inbetween to keep the lines at the desired height.
