I'm moving and have a spot picked out along the river, I bought a solar electric fence. You think this will work? Planning on putting a strand low and one waist high.

Are you meaning a paged fence also?

Run a strand around then about two feet out run another. Something to do with depth perception but it will keep the deer out.

I kept the coons and deer out of my sweet corn last year with colored Christmas tree lights and then had radio running all night. We got nearly all of it except after four or five nights I guess they got accustomed to it going And finally got the end of the sweet corn.
It worked on my sweet potatoes also.

I ring the garden with Irish Spring Soap slivers and it works for me on deer and rabbitts.
