Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What’s the material made of?

A. Textilene® polyvinyl mesh in a basketweave pattern with a strength rating of 387 lbs. per square inch.


Q. Do you place the material at ground level?

A. No, we place the barrier 4” to 6" into the ground so that the toads cannot burrow under it. Therefore, we need to make sure the area does not have foliage and/or root structures (including old root systems) that make it difficult or impossible to place the material into the ground. Important note: If we cannot dig due to obstructions, we will stake the mesh to the ground and advise that the homeowner cover the staked mesh with dirt, rock, or mulch. We do not provide these groundcovers.


Q. How do you handle installation where the fence meets the house?

A. We attach the barrier to exterior walls of the house to avoid any gaps that may allow the toads access to the yard. 


Q. I have gates though. Now what?

A. When it comes to the gate, we will attach a piece of edging that will brush the ground ensuring a tight seal but allowing for the same gate movement and access you had before installation of the toad barrier.


Q. Doesn’t the lawn guys’ equipment tear this barrier up all the time?

A. No because not only is the Textilene® mesh nearly indestructible, we offer added protection by installing protective edging with screws and washers. We can run that edging on one or both sides of the fencing to offer you the shield you choose.


Q. What colors does the material come in?

A. Our barrier comes in black, brown, white and green. They are all see through, with matching moldings!


Q. Is the border strong?

A. Very! The border on the mesh material is a leather engrained, reinforced Quadstitch® border material with multiple stitches of the highest-grade Aqualon marine thread securing the border to the mesh.

Q. What type of fences work with the barrier?

A. We can apply the barrier to any fence including vinyl, chain link, aluminum, wood (including shadowbox) and more. See some photos here
