The fence made of mesh netting, installed by one's own hands, is very relevant for dachas, because serious metal or any other monolithic fences between sites are simply prohibited. Rabitsa is an excellent, inexpensive, accessible to all material, widely used for erecting fences or fences for dachas. The cellular structure of the grid does not obscure areas with plants (like slate or siding), freely passes air flows, rays of the sun. In addition, this material is successfully used to block water areas, poultry houses, animal habitats, technical areas.

Before you make a fence from the mesh netting you need to take into account all the nuances, and especially the size of the cells. For example, if you or your neighbors keep on giving chickens, then the cell size should be minimal (so that the animals do not infiltrate someone else's plot). For a normal division of the territory, a lattice with cells of any size is suitable.
Types of mesh netting
Today in the market of building materials there are three types of mesh successfully used.
The difference in the material from which it is made:
- Neo-galvanized, uncoated mesh, made of ferrous metal. Such rabitsa does not differ with a long service life, after a few days starts to rust. It is used as a temporary material before the installation of more serious fences, but the paint coating significantly extends the life of the fence.
- Rabitz-galvanizing is not susceptible to rusting, is the most common building material in those cases when it is necessary to have exactly such grids.
- Mesh plastic mesh for fence (with a polymer coating) is a steel mesh covered with a layer of polyvinyl chloride. It has a modern aesthetic appearance, it is not afraid of moisture, corrosive processes. Such a grating is ductile, does not burst under deformations, is excellent for installation in areas with a high level of acid or alkali in the soil. An additional advantage is the fact that the plasticized slab is available in different colors.
The mesh netted with plants and flowers looks very aesthetically pleasing, and if it itself has a green color (plastic coating), it is more attractive twice..
Fence installation from the mesh netting, as best
Fences from the mesh netting can be built in two ways:
- by stretching the mesh between the support posts,
- assembly of sections (in the second case a welding machine is required).
Support posts are metal (for example, pipes), concrete or wooden. For a more thorough sectional fence, you need metal corners to make the frame. This fence will look more aesthetic, but at a price it will be much more expensive. The stretch version is simpler, but also quite practical. In any case, the choice is yours.
The site of the future fence is marked with pegs, between which a string is stretched. The length of the rope should be equal to the length of the net, but for reliability it is better to stock up a large number of meters. Places of installation of a peg are places where there will be poles for a fence from a grid of the slab, therefore it will be better if the distance between them does not exceed one and a half to two meters. This material (grid) has the property of sagging, so do not make too many distances between the racks.
The depth of the pits under the pillars is usually a meter and a half, and in the first place are installed corner posts (they always have a higher pressure). To strengthen the corners of the pillars, a sand-gravel mixture is added to the bottom of the pit, it is rammed and grouted with a solution of cement.
While the mixture does not completely solidify, the post should not be touched. Also for these purposes it is appropriate to use a construction plumb line or level. Options for strengthening the support depend on the preferences of the developer, from the designation of the fence.

After hardening of the concrete mix, there should be a turn of hooks, for which the slab will be engaged. Usually, nails or large diameter wires are used for these purposes, which are then welded to the supports using a welding machine.
It is worth bearing in mind that now there are ready-made painted poles in the market that have hooks. Before the tension of the grid, the metal supports are painted with paint, and the wood is treated with special protective means (along the entire length). After this, the rabbit is stretched and put into the hooks by cells. For more reliable fastening, some summer residents additionally wrap the support with wire mesh.
To install the fence from the mesh netting with your own hands was as reliable as possible, it is recommended to use the reinforcing method - an additional vertical fixing of the supporting rod. For this, in the first or second row of cells a rod or a reliable thick wire is passed from above, which is also welded to the posts (or attached to a wooden support). This technique does not allow the grid to sag in the course of time and strengthens the entire structure as a whole. Make sure that the tension is elastic. The subsequent process is similar for the remaining supports..
There is another, quite common variant of fastening - a fence made from a mesh netting (wooden vestibules). The difference is that the grid is fixed not on the pole itself, but on a wooden board (dolly) attached to this pole. The foot is attached to the top and bottom of the main support.
When the fence is installed, do not be lazy to take the pliers, bend all the upper hooks of the rabitsa downwards - so you will be sure that no one is accidentally injured.
It happens that the enclosed site has an uneven terrain, in these cases produce the so-called terracing. It is done in a similar way: the support post is installed in the place of the soil drop, on the one hand The grid is fixed at one level, and on the other (another piece of the grid) is already higher or lower - according to the level delta.In this case, the mesh net for cutting is cut into fragments.
But there is another option for installing a fence, optimally suitable for uneven ground - section.↑ back to content ↑
Sectional fence of mesh netting
These sections are welded metal frames, which are made from corners. Inside such a frame is a slab, and he himself is welded to the support post. At the initial stage of the installation, pegs are also used, but the poles are already more powerful, since they are heavily loaded. If you decide to make a long-lasting sectional fence of mesh netting, then the pouring of the ribbon foundation will not be superfluous, but without it a similar design will last long.
The dimensions of the frame are determined individually, the distance between the supports is 15-20 cm less. In turn, the width of the frame must also be less than the length of the column by about 15-20 cm. The roll of the net is cut with a saw-bolgar cut into sections of the required dimensions, a metal rod is passed through the upper part of the fragment, which is welded to the upper part of the frame. By the same method, the other sides of the grid are attached to the frame. The next stage is the fastening of supporting metal strips (approximately 5 cm wide and 30 cm long) to the support (they are also welded), after which the section is placed between the poles and is welded directly to these strips. At the final stage, the sectional fence of the mesh netting is painted with paint.
Installation of a tension guard does not require special skills from you, it will not take much time, and it is preferable to install a sectional structure with an assistant, or rather with two. This type of fencing will last you for many years, if some part of the fence is damaged during operation, it will not be difficult to repair it. Despite its "airiness the mesh fence from the net is a serious obstacle for uninvited guests - the tensioning design is flexible, it will be difficult to stay on it. And, if you install it with your own hands, then this is the most economical and fast option for summer cottage fencing, and with an individual approach it is very aesthetic and attractive..
