I just installed a chain link fence in my backyard and due to my house's foundation i have a 2 gaps one were my fence starts and another where it ends that our small dog can pass through (my lab isn't the issue here, my jack russel is however). I'm looking for ideas as to how i can eliminate these gaps so my small dog can't get out. Is there a product already designed to fix this common problem? I'm thinking wood planks or maybe dummy posts? My wife just doesn't want me putting up something that will look "ugly", so i'm here looking for ideas from others who might have had the same problem. Thanks!

hmm I don't know, maybe a invisible fence... but then why would you have a chain link fence?

What about chicken wire or like you said, wood planks? And to fancy it up a bit so your wife doesn't think it looks 'ugly' plant a bush or flowers there. Good luck!

thanks for the replies so far. I'm not a fan of the invisible fence/shock/training collars so that's a route i don't wish to go. Chicken wire won't be tall enough unless it comes in heights i'm not aware of i'll have to look into that. I'm worried that wood mixed in with the chain-link won't float with my wife. I'm considering dummy fence posts, but again i'm not sure how that will look and if it's even possible to dig them in enough to stay because my house foundation is right there. Currently i have 2 rolls of leftover fence blocking the gaps held in place with a series of zip-ties. The wife isn't too happy about that though, but it's working for now. I guess there is nothing for sale that is a cure for this. Maybe a trip to Lowes or Home Depot will yield me some solutions. If anyone has anymore ideas fire them my way. Thanks again!

Can you not fix a pole or other piece of wood to your house wall and just fix the chainlink to that? or does that leave too big a gap at the bottom?

That's what i'm wanting to do. I was hoping a product already existed that did this though. Apparently there is not, or at least i have not found it yet. It's more then likely going to come down to me rigging something like that myself.

Depends what your house is made of of course, but we just bolted the pole to the brick. But I know most houses in the US are not made of brick so it could be trickier for you. Let us know how you get on. A photo would be cool tto. I'd like to see your solution!

  1. yes there is a new product that is patent pending, it was specially designed for this problem, most structures will have an extended foundation footing or possibly buried plumbing or electrical wires, it is called a fence end spacer and it simply attaches to the terminal/end post with two U-bolts and is available for standard galvanized chain link and colored vinyl chain link residential and commercial fencing. It adds a professional finish and will provide for a secured enclosure. For further information email rbrgbarterr@yahoo.com

Wooden plank can look good if you can use it in proper way. Planks within fences can make it look beautiful. It can serve the purpose of both chain link fences and wooden fences.
