Fence wire configuration

Below are images of several fence wire configurations. In each image, '+' is an electrified (hot) wire, and '' is a grounded wire.

Remember, for very dry or frozen soil conditions, do not use fences that have no ground wire!

In special instances, such as a fence to keep both raccoons and deer out, it is possible to combine the features of both types of fences to make one.
