Winter ready your netting

Hello,

As I said last week we spoke about horse fencing. Today is the turn of netting and as today it is blowing a hoolie out there it makes sense to chat about it.

So your netting has been up for a wee while now and should be working great, with the winter months round the corner we suggest with all fencing you have a check of all the components and make sure you are as winter ready as possible.

Power and connections:

It does not matter if you are running off a battery or mains power have a look at your leads and make sure the are tightly connected.

If you are using a battery it will be happy living outside in all weathers, we do suggest if you are likely to have heavy snow or sharp frost you give it a wee bit of help and place it in a plastic storage container this will prevent the build up of ice and frost on the connections it should also help with the life of the battery. As during the winter months if the battery gets very cold it will discharge slightly quicker than in the summer months.

Netting:

Onto the netting, Have a wander around your netting making sure there are no breaks in the lines. If there are grab your repair kit and get fixing. Now checking for any sagging, if you have some remove the post and try reposting it this should help a bit, if it does not do the job fully then you can either use your guy ropes to help or have a look at out wonder clips ( Netting Clips) The use of Damp Proof Core underneath your netting will help with vegetation growth and some sagging issues. Keeping your netting free from falling vegetation daily is also essential esp in the Autumn months.
