Thanks for the link Dave, funny we call that dog wire in Oz and is readily available but I haven't seen it up here in La Union to date, nor have I seen star pickets, we did look but not found yet, time will tell or just wait until we do the perimeter fences and no dog until then.

Cheers, Steve.

As i said, I used it originally as a temporary boundary fence. I'm now considering beefing it up a bit, adding some stronger fence posts, some bamboo slats etc and using it as my permanent fence. Don't really see the point in building a tall block wall as it's just easier for an intruder to climb over. Unless its 10ft tall with razor wire on top Filipinas will be over a 6ft block wall in seconds. If they try to climb over a wire fence it will twist and flex and I reckon be actually more difficult to get over. Cheap as chips as well.

Ours is about 8 ft concrete block walls on 2 sides and concrete block(4 ft) with 6 ft chain link on 2 sides. The locals will climb the fence and look in the windows(kids)

Well Dave while I hear you I have a better half that is insistent on an 8 foot high fence and every time I remind him "that's what god made ladders for" feels it is required. (local mentality? Conforming to the doctrines of living in a shady area?) Living here now for 3 months with nary a fence aside from the 8 to 10 foot high concrete fence with our neighbours on the south side has attracted no intruders from our access road, the vacant block next door nor the beach front. We (me) will never fence the ocean view or it will become a waste of time living here and is open access for those that lurk with intent via the beach front.

I think that we are fortunate that we live in an area of wealth (not us) and our little bay/cove is home to wealthy people, prime targets? Doubt it as all our neighbours have never had a problem, only the termites.

While yes we will put perimeter fences on 2 sides the western/beach side will always be open for the view and as long as the house is secure matters not. Ben brought an 8 camera security system in Oz which we will install but as said living here now feel very comfortable and safe and for me am happy to leave the non existent boundary fences,,,,,,,, until we get a dog, then things change.
Sorry for waffling on.

Cheers, Steve.

Back home we got my father in laws old electric cattle fence unit to protect our garden from rabbits, raccoons and deer.

Might work here, not harmful but somewhat painful.

Might cause some legal problems, especially since a foreigner is involved.

Interesting, in Oz we display "electric fence signs" and all beware, wonder the local ramifications here in PH?
One local here apart from cameras also had a beam break system installed on his fence for a year or so but see that he has removed it now, not sure why though but will ask when we see him again. Very happy here ATM with no fences and our only intruders are goats and the 2 cows that trim the garden.

Cheers, Steve.

More likely a neighbour will try and run his house from it.
