A Well-Made Fence Brings Peace of Mind

If you keep livestock or tend a garden that's vulnerable to wildlife predators, you know that a good fence is essential for protecting your investment. But with all of the new options available today — and the many challenges posed by terrain, weather, and predators — it's often hard to determine what type of fence meets your needs. That's why Gail Damerow has written this practical, easy-to-use guide to selecting, planning, and building fences that work.

Filled with sound, up-to-date advice and instruction, Fences for Pasture & Garden makes fence-building a task anyone can tackle with confidence. The author weighs the pros and cons of various fence systems — from traditional fences to the latest technology — and helps you select the best one for your needs. Helpful suggestions for planning the fence ensure maximum efficiency of labor and materials. And complete, generously illustrated directions show you how to build wire fences, rail fences, electric fences, high-tension fences, temporary fences, woven fences, snow fences, gates, trellises, and more.

From alarm systems to zoning laws, this book covers it all. If there's a fence in your future, don't waste time and money on an ineffective system. Make it one you can rely on by first reading Fences for Pasture & Garden.

About the Author

Author Gail Damerow lives in Gainesboro, Tennessee, and operates a small-scale farm raising chickens and other farm animals. She has raised chickens since 1970 when she bought her first home, which "came with chickens." Gail has been a creative writing instructor at Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville since 1988. She is the editor of Rural Heritage magazine, a monthly columnist for Dairy Goat Journal, and the author of several Storey titles for adults and children alike which include Your Chickens, Fences for Pasture and Garden, and The Perfect Pumpkin. She has been published in many periodicals, including Acres U.S.A., Backyard Poultry, and Dairy Goat Jounal as well. Gail's book for adults, The Chicken Health Handbook, is considered "Flawless" by Booklist (April 1994). Likewise, Ron Macher from Small Farm Today magazine has said of Gail's A Guide to Raising Chickens: "If you want to raise chickens, you can go out and buy A Guide to Raising Chickens and have it all. This is the best single book on chicken raising I have seen--it has solid practical advice, good 'how-to' tips, and covers everything. Buy this book."
