Traditional Deer Fencing
Our deer fencing provides a secure, strong, and unobtrusive solution to deer entering your premises. With multiple options of height, rail quantities and installed with UK fabricated steel, it is the most structurally sound and highest quality deer fencing in the Country.
There are six species of deer around the UK, all of which are wonderful and majestic to watch. Unfortunately, they are voracious feeders and can become a nuisance when they decimate flower beds, damage trees, and destroy saplings. This is especially true of Roe and Muntjac, who have even been known to visit gardens to feed, destroying plants and flowers and vital habitats in the process.
As with our estate fencing, deer fencing is an investment to your property, with all our steel fabricated here in the UK, made from the highest quality solid steel with the guarantee it will last a lifetime.

Deer Fencing Solutions
Deer fencing is not just reserved for deer parks, it’s also ideal for properties in the country that want to stop wild deer from accessing their private gardens and land.
At Steel Landscaping Co., the deer fencing we create is made to the same exacting specifications as our standard estate fencing, the main difference is the height. Deer fences are taller than traditional estate fencing to deter and stop deer from jumping over.
Deer Fencing FAQs
Our deer fencing is higher than our traditional estate fencing. Our most popular deer fencing ranges from 1.6 to 2 metres, but it will depend on the type of deer you wish to contain or keep off your premises.
Our specialist deer fencing is not only higher than our traditional estate Fencing it also contains more rails, reducing the gaps, as it is imperative that the fence does not only prevent the deer from leaping over the fence, but also stops them squeezing through or under the fence.
Our deer fencing comes in a range of heights and number of rails:
1.6 metres high with 7 rails
1.8 metres high with 8 rails
2 metres high with 9 rails
We can add or reduce rail quantities if required.
Field, garden, and property entrances must also utilise deer-proof gates, since electric fences, such as that used to control livestock, are often ineffective against deer and may sustain damage should a deer attempt to run through it. 2.5mm high tensile galvanised lamb wire or 6mm round bar are an effective way to reduce our rail spacings further, as roe deer are able to squeeze through gaps as little as 30cm.
Our most popular fencing consists of a 20mm diameter round top rail with 16mm diameter round or 25mm x 6mm flat under rails. The spacings between each rail usually decrease towards the ground, unless stated otherwise.
All rails are delivered on site in 6 metre lengths and fed through 40mm x 8mm intermediate posts driven into the ground at approximately 1 metre intervals, with every 3rd post to include a welded on 150mm thrust plate which is set in a fast-setting concrete.
Yes, unless stated otherwise. Our most popular choice is our zinc phosphate satin black finish, however if you require another colour, simply supply a RAL number and we can spray your estate fencing with this instead. Alternatively, your estate fencing can be left untreated to turn a golden patina.
Our fencing arrives on site with a zinc phosphate black primer undercoat before a 100-micron minimum top coating, sprayed on site. All welds are chipped, wire brushed and primed before final spray.
For structural integrity, helping give more rigidity to your fence as well as enhancing aesthetics, we supply 76mm round or square end posts with different types of finials for on top.
Whilst 76mm is the most popular, we can also supply smaller or larger size end posts for your fence line.
We use the same end posts for our corner posts, providing a structural and decorative point for when your fence changes a sharp angle such as 90-degrees.
All our end/corner posts are concreted a minimum of 2ft in the ground with each rail welded on to them.
