I closed on my house and got my keys on Friday. It has a two-car garage with an attached 3rd car garage, which, of course, will become my RC labratory (insert maniacal laugh here).
Other than building workbenches, the only thing I really need to alter with the place are its fences in the back yard. It has 600 feet of nice chainlink fence in back yard, but the fence is only 4', and I have this guy, who's nose can touch the top of the fence:
So, I am installing electric fence. Here is the yard:
The red is the eniter back yard, but we are limiting him to the blue line. I have ran the hot wire, one strand on the 70' sides, and on the fence by the house. The blue line has three strands of hot wire (will be replaced later with 6' panel fencing).
What is confusing me is the ground and how to install it, I am not sure what I really need. I have an 8' grounding pole that I still need to drive into the ground, but I don't know where I need it, or how many I need. I have seen a couple of dog-specific kits (hot-wire, not invisible fence) that just have a 10" spike.
So, given the area I have, where, how many, and what type of grounds should I install?
