Ideas for temporary fencing after a storm

temp_fence_hire-galt5900A severe storm can easily blow away your fences or damage them to such an extent that they are no longer useful. Have you ever thought about what you might do in a situation like this if you need to keep your children out of the vegetable garden or your dog from running out on the street, or just protect your new flower bed? What you can do is erect temporary fencing. You can easily install and remove temporary fencing if you have the right ideas, while it will not cost you much either. You can use various materials for temporary fencing as well.

So, here are some useful ideas for temporary fencing in Glasgow after a storm.

Wire Mesh

1/2-inch and 1/4-inch mesh fences along with 1-inch and 2-inch chicken wire fences are included among wire fences. The height of these fences varies between 2 and 3 feet. The wire can just be cut to fit if shorter fencing is needed. Two lengths of fencing can be fastened one top of each other to make a higher fence. In other words, a 4-foot-high fence can be formed by wiring together two 2-foot-high sections. The wire fencing can be attached with zip fasters or it can be twist tied to posts after sinking them into the ground. A large cage-like fencing can also be created using wire mesh fencing.

Thin Wire

Thin wire fencing has arches made of thin wire that are connected halfway up the arch and toward the bottom. When not being used, it is usually also possible to fold the 8-foot-long sections. This type of temporary fencing does not require any assembly. The ends of the fence simply have to be pushed into the ground to be erected. This fencing is not very strong, but then again it is just temporary fencing. Areas can be segmented after a storm using this type of fencing.

Plastic Mesh

Plastic mesh fencing is a lightweight fencing constructed of cross-hatched vinyl is available in 2- and 3-foot heights. There are 2 inch square openings between the crosshatch. They can be tied through those openings in order to be attached to posts. The mesh can be wrapped around trees if an area needs to be enclosed after a storm. The plastic mesh can also be used to keep dogs from entering flower beds after a storm.


When it comes to wood temporary fencing, some of the available options include bamboo, picket panels and wire and slats. The panels are similar to picket fencing. However, they do not have to be attached to permanent posts; rather every panel has spikes at all ends so that they can be driven into the ground. The slats and wire fences come with 1- and 2-inch wood slats with 6-inch intervals where they are wired at the bottom and top of the slats. The slats have a V-shaped bottom so the fencing can be installed by pounding them into the ground. A visual barrier is provided by bamboo fencing but it is not very strong. It is possible to attach them to closely spaced posts or to another fence temporarily. Unwanted views can also be blocked using it after a storm.


Temporary fencing often becomes necessary after a storm, especially if the existing fencing is not longer useful. This is when ideas for temporary fencing after a storm can come in handy.
