Grow it and they will come. The deer, that is. At least that’s how it seems here in El Dorado County. If you have any kind of landscaping, there’s something either climbing over or digging under everything you have tried to keep the critters out of your garden.
“This time of year, especially,” Beau Keefauver, owner of “Got Fence” said, knowing that many of us are getting our gardens ready. He also knows that the deer are lining up to dine at the unlimited buffet in your yard or orchard.
For the past 10 years, Beau, and wife Cassie have not only contained many, many gardens, but have designed statement fencing for your home or deck, created ornate security gates, run fence on many a pasture, kept your dog that the neighbors hate inside his dog run and have fixed any other fencing problem that a homeowner or rancher might have.
“I have three amazing children, two boys and my little girl,” Beau said. “Got Fence” is a family run business, with his wife Cassie handling the phones and appointments. His mom does the business’s bookkeeping and it’s Beau and two installers who provide and install the fencing, gates and other metal fabricated needs.
Maybe you don’t live on a large parcel but are wishing there was a way to make your backyard just a little more private. Using an artistic eye, Beau can help you design a back yard feature that will give you that privacy without putting up something that looks institutional and offensive. His creations are art with a purpose.
This artist also has an eye for what a property owner needs regarding livestock fencing. “We run three trucks,” Beau said, “and we just purchased a new mt.55 track loader/drill rig.” If you are looking for a little something to decorate the pathway that leads to your home, you may not see that massive rig, but if you have a huge project that needs to be done, and done right and in a timely manner, “Got Fence” is your team.
I’ve been in my home for over 30 years up here in Pollock Pines and regardless of where I dig, odds are I’ll be coming across some old barbed wire from the ranch that was here over half a century ago. The materials that fences are made from today are by far more humane and certainly more attractive than those of yesteryear. Materials like vinyl or iron are used in some of Beau’s ornamental gates, and field fencing is often made from vinyl posts and stringers. Chain link fencing is and will always be popular for dog runs or containments. I asked Beau if there is any type of dog fencing that will guarantee that your dog won’t dig out. He assured me that there is and “Got Fence” will install it.
So plan to stop by and chat with the Keefauver family and their crew. If you’ve got a problem that could be solved with a little fencing, share it with them and I bet they have a solution. Been thinking about putting an impressive gate at the entry to your property? This might be the year. You can reach “Got Fence” at 530-903-6062 or drop them an email at [email protected].
