Hog wire fence

    I find it really interesting how many views this particular picture receives. I guess there is a lot of curiousity out there about hog-wire fence / guardrails.

      Thanks for posting this! I googled "hog wire" after someone suggested it as a material for a trellis. I really like it as a fence/railing too!

      Is this just regular hog wire? It looks like some special thick gauge. Any idea?

      Yep its just regular hog wire -- though that may be a local term. It is a thicker gauge, I want to say the wire is about 1/8" thick or so (not something you can bend by hand). It comes in rectangular panels -- not rolled up like some of the thinner gauge wire fencing.

      Thanks. I'm in Tennessee and the stuff they call hog wire around here has smaller panels at the bottom and then larger panels at the top, but I think I'll just go to the store and see what I can find. This (what's in the photo) is exactly what I want for our deck -- keeps kids in but still allows a great view of the river.

      I found that Hog Wire is thinner gauge, but I think it is called Bull Wire, Horse wire or Ranch fencing. It is 1 Gauge and 6"x6" squares. I'm still searching for this in my area and will probbaly have to special order it.

      Hmmm... that very well could be true. 'Hog wire' Im sure is not a standardized term. Around here (Sonoma County, Northern California) it is easily available and comes in either 4inch square or 6 inch square pattern, I see it all over the place, used in gardens, railings, trellises -- even as displays in stores. Im sure as the idea spreads around it will become easy to get everywhere.

      Thank you for the pics. I'm doing a project, where the customer is asking for a Hog Wire Fence with aluminum columns. I didn't know how it look, but thanx to your pics I got a better idea. Nice work.

      Just purchased bullwire today, but had a much more complicated plan for forming the frames around the wire mesh. Thought I'd check the internet for ideas one more time and ran across your photo above. Thanks for posting it. I'm definitely going to use it as a template.

      I wish I could find some hogwire. I need that for my garden. I'll check amazon. smiles.

      The only manufacturer I can find that makes it is OK Steel


      Finding a local supplier is another thing and will have to wait until Monday....

      Tractor Supply has hog panels. I got one in Gloucester VA. 16 foot length. you can cut it down. I am going to get another piece for a grape arbor creation. The store will tie the ends together so that it will fit in back of a small truck.

      You must go to a farm supply store----cities and suburbs will not carry this farm item. Drive to a farming area, you can find new things for sale.

      I live in Sonoma County! Where exactly did you get these panels...I have been searching high and low.. Thanks

    17. Retired person 23 months ago | reply

      Sleepy--you have to leave suburbia and go to a real farming area--where livestock are kept. Then ask the local greasy spoon or 7-11 where the farm supply store is. These are wonderful panels.

      Actually if you are in Sonoma County, I believe they are available at Friedman Brothers.

      Hi , I like your fence very much, do you own it yourself? or you are selling this?
