  • My nbiggest problem is with trespassing hunters and fishermen and other "sportsmen' cutting the fences and tearing down the keep out signs. plus the suburbanites who want to expand their yards and gardens into other peoples property. I like my grass in the ditches to be about a foot tall to slow down the rain water and keep it from eroding the ditch.

  • We used to spread Karmex along our fence lines. Nothing grew under or by them for 5 years. No reason to stock to look for the grass on the other side of the fence. There wasn't any for 2 feet on either side. Made life much easier. Looks like your enjoying retirement. RETIREMENT! Your probably working harder now than before.

  • As a "kid" growing up on a farm. After storm, we had to walk the fence line and see if and trees or limbs are on the fence. We had to take a hammer and nails with us and fix the fence. (Wood post back then.) We use herbicides, Round Up.

  • 11:28 - Wouldn't it be nice if there was a swing-out arm on each side of the riding mower that holds a weed-eater head so you can trim under around the fence posts as you go? Enjoyed your video today!

    Gilbert NicholsGilbert Nichols5 oy oldin
  • One way to help keep the weeds and brush from growing along the fence row is with a walk behind string trimmer that gets right under the fence and they make a nice spring loaded trimmer ya can put on your tractor for long fence rows that you don't have to worry to much with each post cause it get right to the post and the spring will allow it to give way and keep on mowing trimming the fence row you probably know what im talking about and id bet gp rents has one .

  • We bought a farm two years ago and the fences are grew up exactly like you are talking about. The fence u fed it is actually in decent shape. What’s the best way to clear out all of the brush? Most people have told me to have it dozed out and put up new. Not really wanting to spend all that money if I can save the old stuff.

  • I think people freak out over herbicides too much. Doing that little bit around the edge of the fence isn’t going to hurt anything, 1 foot away the grass is perfectly fine so what’s it really going to hurt. If they want to get real fancy they could use vinegar and salt if they wanna pay the extra money but using that little bit of spray around the bottom of the fence isn’t going to hurt anything. There on food that you eat I agree you have to be careful and not be excessive with it, But if used properly it’s not a big deal. You’re right with the fences, it’s just like anything else, maintenance makes a huge difference. If you have wood siding on your house and you paint that every six or eight years that house will last 200 years if you don’t paint it and water gets into that wood it’s gonna last 20 years.

  • If people don’t want to use herbicide to control weeds under their electric fencing they can put cardboard or whole , overlapping, newspapers under their fence line.

  • THANK YOU, now I know I'm not alone here in Oklahoma that tries to keep the brush out of my fence lines. Now if I could get the stuff the tree service put on the saplings under the power lines, I'd be set.

  • I’m sharing a property with an older gentlemen. His philosophy is “it’s not my property I’m not putting money into it, carry a roll of 14 gauge soft wire and patch the fence. Let the trees grow into the fence they will be a new post, attach the fence to the nearest tree if the post is rotted out. Cattle won’t go through blackberry bushes or vine thickets”. Growing up on a ranch I couldn’t adopt his philosophy of fence maintenance. I’m out there clearing trees that have fallen on the fence, replacing rotten posts. Also helps trespassers know someone is always out there, find an easier target somewhere else.

  • If you have a old tractor that has the three point then a sickle bar will go under most of the lowest fence lines and get a good strip plus it will nibble those pesky smallish trees that are just getting started... and the distance that you can go in a day is appreciative of what can be done for maintenance for even just the looks. I know it sounds like I want to spend your money but its rewarding looking back on it. I guess that if I had my way then everyone would have such a toy and a brush hog to go with. Houston and his buddy could run tractors up and down the fence once he outgrows the "I heard you age" as they tend to get into more mischief than should be. I think once he gets it he is going to be a good farmer... Its the getting them past the consequences of actions thats the hard part. Alone now and one of them would be into that blade and done for
