Coyote Fence Comparison

Coyote fencing is a type of fence engineered to keep coyotes out of an area. Typical applications include:

  • Preventing coyote access (keeping them from going under or into an area) or as dig prevention
  • Surrounding an area like a yard where coyote will hunt your pets
  • Adding a rodent barrier for coyote protection to an existing fence (like a yard fence)

This includes surrounding the complete perimeter of an area (along a complete property line) – this can include wide driveway gates for driveways. 

A coyote fence kit is a selection of fencing, fence posts, accessories and hardware to build a complete fence to keep out coyotes when starting from nothing.

Our coyote fences are not electric and cannot fail due to broken wires, dead batteries, etc. They are engineered to keep out many different animals besides coyote, depending on the options you choose. They also make great pet fences to keep in dogs and other animals. We do offer poly electric real physical barrier fences if needed for your application. 

There are 1000+ fence kits, combinations and options within each of these types of coyote fences.

The purpose of this page is to help you compare the choices to best select the coyote fence you need for your project.

In general, most customers with coyote problems select:

  • A coyote fence with overlap. This type of coyote fence includes extra fencing overlapped and staked to the ground to the outside of the area. This acts as a dig deterrent and covers small ups and downs in your landscape coyotes can use for entry. Coyotes will use their noses to try and push up the base of a fence or to try to dig down under your fence for access. This type of coyote fence with overlap is a roll of fence installed at a specific height, leaving additional inches or footage (6-12 inches typical) overlapped and pinned to the ground facing outside.
  • A poly coyote fence with a chew barrier base. Poly fence has properties that make it a great coyote fence when used in combination with metal on the bottom. Poly fence doesn’t have memory (if it’s hit it returns to it’s original shape unlike metal that once bent stays bent) and it’s hard to climb. Poly fence is also lightweight, very strong, not easy to climb and inexpensive. The issue with poly fence is chewing; even the strongest poly fence is not chew proof. The most popular type of fence for excluding coyotes includes a poly fence paired with a metal chew barrier base. In general, the same bottom wire fence used to keep out coyotes will also keep out rabbits and other garden pests. The post popular garden configuration to keep out coyotes (and other animals) would be a 7 ½ foot finished height poly fence in 700 poly paired with a 4ft 1x1 black steel bottom wire, installed at 40 inches tall leaving 8 inches of overlap. The overlap is flexible – for example, you could install the 4ft bottom wire at 36” tall leaving 12 inches of overlap.
  • 36-48” tall. The minimum suggested height to keep out coyotes as a chew barrier base is 36 inches / 48 inches when used on top of another fence. As a stand alone fence you should note that coyotes can and will climb and a 36 to 48 inch tall fence by itself may not keep out coyotes. As a stand alone fence the minimum suggested height is 6 feet tall. The trend has been to go higher to 7.5ft tall or 8ft tall over the years. As an added benefit of going taller, you can keep out other wildlife like deer.

Below are our coyote fence kits separated by type:

Coyote Fence Kits With Chew Barrier (MOST POPULAR) (Two Layers Of Fence) This is the most popular type of fence to keep out coyotes and other wildlife. These kits consist of poly fencing (in all different heights and strengths) or steel with some smaller opening size steel fencing (in different heights, strengths and opening sizes). The purpose of these fence kits is to not only exclude large animals like deer (poly fence is great for deer) but also chewing animals like rabbits and coyotes.


Coyote Fence Kits With OverlapAll steel fence kits that include a minimum of 6" of overlap to pin to the ground. Great for all types of animals that can also try and push up under a fence with their noses. Also can be removable or permanent. Be sure to choose an all metal fence with overlap for coyotes, poly by itself is not a suitable coyote deterrent.


Coyote Fence Kits Without Rodent Barrier Or OverlapThese fence kits don't include a rodent barrier and don't overlap on the ground. That means for example if you order a 6 foot fence kit, we will ship you posts that come out of the ground 6 feet and 6 tall fence to be hung on those posts. This is a great choice for customers that need to take down their fence seasonally or for a removable coyote fence. This would be a good choice for customers blocking off an area only, or installing a fence over an area where coyotes digging under the fence is not a concern.


Coyote Fence Kits With Angled Climb ProtectionThese are specially designed fence kits that include protection against climbing animals (keeps animals in, keeps animals out or keeps animals both ways in and out) when other types of fences have not worked. The posts in these kits include extensions on the top of each post; when paired with included fencing, these extensions make an overhead canopy that deter animals from climbing over. These kits can also be configured with overlap on the ground and also a rodent barrier. They are most often used by customers that want better protection from climbing animals like coyotes and raccoons, but are not concerned with top protection (birds). These types of fences have become more popular for coyotes because coyotes do climb and are heavy animals. The poly fence upper used in these fence kits is not comfortable to climb and turn coyotes back the other way to the ground.


Coyote Fence Kits With Four Sides And a TopThese coyote fence kits consist of all 1" opening size or smaller fencing and are engineered to exclude most animals including birds. These kits are great for customers that want to grow anything that is normally eaten by birds, such as berries, or climbing animals like raccoons and coyotes. These fence kits are specific in size and as a disadvantage can only cover smaller areas because of the modular structural design. This would be a good example of a fence to enclose specific pets or farm animals (like chickens) to keep them safe from coyotes.


Coyote Fence Retrofit Kits - Make Your Existing Fence HigherHave a shorter fence in your yard or around your perimeter you would like to extend up higher? These fence kits make it easy to convert your existing conventional fence to an effective coyote fence. For example, extensions to increase the height of your chain link fence, wood fence, aluminum fence to coyote proof your yard.

There are a few different coyote fence options on the market. If you have a need to create a fence to keep coyotes out of an area, our fence is for you.

Here’s why:

  • Our coyote fencing is effective but nearly invisible from a distance. It's engineered to be as invisible as possible, to blend in with your existing landscape.
  • Completely NON-ELECTRIC, no wires to break, no parts to fail over time. A real actual physical barrier to keep coyotes out. Poly electric physical fences are available if needed. 
  • Our fences to keep animals out are customizable. Choose the right strength, height, chew resistance, opening size and more for your project. This includes coyote fence gates from 3 feet wide to 24 feet wide, thicker corner posts/end posts if applicable, tensioning for your coyote fence and more. We offer the largest selection of animal fence products on the market.
  • Need a temporary coyote fence or seasonal coyote fence? All of our fences with patent pending ground sleeves can be installed permanently or made removable if needed. Use included locking set screws to release our fence posts. A good example would be installing a fence when needed (family visiting with young children or dogs) then take it down after.
  • We make our coyote fences quick and easy to install. Using ground sleeves for regular posts and gates and large ground sleeves for corner posts and driveway gates no concrete footings are needed. Posts are secured with a locking set screw inside each sleeve. Large areas can be installed in a fraction of the time it would take for conventional fencing and without using concrete footings. Most customers install this type of fence themselves without contractors.
  • Since 1992 we have been shipping this type of specialty fence to customers. It's our product, shipped from our warehouses directly to you - no drop shipping or 3rd party involvement which is more common these days. 

Coyote Fence Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best coyote fence?
The best type of coyote fence is strong enough to keep coyotes out without hurting them or getting them or other animals caught in the fence. This is usually a metal or poly and metal combination coyote fence with a 2 inch or smaller opening size, overlapped and staked to the ground facing outside 6 to 12 inches.
How do I build a coyote fence?
Coyote fences are made of support posts, rolls of fencing material and hardware. Ground sleeves are first driven into the ground with a sledge hammer, posts then slide in the ground sleeves and secure with locking set screws. Fencing material is either attached to the posts directly with fence ties or attached to tension cable which offers additional support. Coyote fences can be buried at the bottom of the fence or overlapped and pinned to the ground with stakes to prevent coyotes from pushing up under the fence.
What is the easiest coyote fence to install?
The easiest coyote fence to install uses ground sleeves. Ground sleeves are first driven into the ground with a sledge hammer, posts then slide in the ground sleeves and secured with a locking set screw. The posts can be permanent or removable. Coyote fences with tensioning are not removable. It’s easier to remove a coyote fence without overlap, than one with overlap, but be advised coyote fence without overlap does not prevent digging underneath.
What is a coyote fence made out of?
Coyote fence is usually made out of black PVC coated galvanized steel or a combination fence of polypropylene and metal. Here’s some information on each:
  • Polypropylene plastic coyote fence: Used in combination with metal fence: Small opening size 3/4"-1" to larger 2" opening size carbon black fence mesh is available in different opening sizes and strengths. This mesh is black to inhibit breakdown from UV rays and different types of this mesh will have different longevity outdoors in sunlight; as little as 3 years to as much as 25 years. It can consist of all virgin polypropylene or a small percentage of recycled material. The black color also makes this mesh not very visible. This type of coyote fence does not rust with water or salt water exposure. The larger 1 3/4 to 2" opening size can be used as a physical barrier and can range from 400 pounds of breaking strength per square foot up to 1400 pounds of breaking strength per square foot. The higher strength versions of this poly coyote fencing can repel any size deer running at any speed (most customers needing to keep out coyotes also need to keep out deer). A poly fence by itself without a chew barrier is not recommended as a stand alone fence to keep out coyotes. 
  • Metal coyote fence: Small to large opening size wire fence of various thicknesses and strengths. This wire fence can be welded or woven. Woven wire is bent into shapes by a machine and can be knotted like traditional field fence or twisted like traditional hex type mesh (chicken wire). Metal coyote fence can be plain galvanized or galvanized painted black or galvanized then black vinyl coated. Galvanization can be before weaving or welding or after welding or weaving (in galvanized after welding/weaving the welded joints are also covered with zinc for the best rust resistance). Some more common knotted metal fixed knot fence is graduated with smaller opening size 2"x4" wire spacing at the bottom to larger 4" opening size wire spacing at the top (not suitable to keep out coyotes, they will climb through 4x4 openings). Metal coyote fence is very strong and can range from 800 pounds of breaking strength for the woven wire hex (chicken wire) types to over 2000 pounds of breaking strength per square foot for some of the welded wire types. 1"x1" metal or smaller can also be used as a chew barrier or rodent barrier at the base of a poly deer fence. In general, most customers choose a 1x1 black PVC coated metal fence to exclude coyotes. Some customers choose the 2x2 black PVC coated metal fence or the 2x4. 
How tall does a coyote fence need to be?
A typical coyote fence is 6 feet tall to keep coyotes from climbing up and over. In most scenarios coyotes will tire and give up before climbing up to 6 feet tall. Some yards with extreme coyote issues may need to install a taller fence such as 7.5 feet or 8 feet tall.
How tall does a rodent barrier need to be to keep out coyotes?
Minimum 48 inches tall. Coyotes are large animals with sharp teeth. Rodent barriers are typically installed 48 inches in height with additional fencing overlapped and pinned to the ground facing outside to prevent digging under the fence.
What is an electric coyote fence?
Electric coyote fence is a fence consisting of electrically charged wires with the intent of shocking coyotes to scare them away. This type of electric fence can be more expensive than conventional coyote fence and more difficult to install & maintain. Wild animals like coyotes are likely to move into strands of electric fence by accident; once the strands are broken the electric fence system is down and needs to be repaired. Electric fence is great for domestic farm animals like goats for example. You can bring a goat up to an electric fence to shock them once and they will never go up to that electric fence again. Wild animals are different; a traditional (not electric) animal fence is recommended for wild animals.
Can coyotes crawl under a fence?
Coyotes can without a doubt crawl under a fence! This is a primary characteristic of coyotes. They can and will dig under a fence. To protect against digging, additional fencing is buried in the ground or overlapped and staked to the ground using ground stakes. 
How much does coyote fence cost?
Coyote fence will range in price from $1 a foot to $10 a foot or more depending on the width and type of coyote fence and if you are purchasing rolls of coyote fence only or a complete coyote fence kit. Rolls of polypropylene coyote fencing will cost less than all metal coyote fence.
