deer fence with a twist. posts can mimic existing fence. "The sky is the limit when it comes to fence design. A recent trend is to build a fence with nothing but vertical posts spaced close together to form a barrier. Rather than a monstrosity, it feels open and airy and has a sense of visual permeability that is hard to achieve in any other style. It is impermeable by deer, however, as long as the space between the posts is less than 8 inches and the posts are at least 7 feet tall."
