Can’t help you with ideas, since I am in a similar position. I just bought
acreage next to a cattle ranch, and the rancher apparently has a reputation
for shooting the neighbors’ dogs if they wander onto his property! I have
two dogs, so I am trying to fence my ten-acre parcel as cheaply as possible!
If you get any good ideas off-list, I would love to hear of them!
Meanwhile, I used to live on a corner lot in a not-so-great neighborhood,
and I didn’t have a fence at all up front – just a small fenced in back yard
and a really good alarm system (including wired screens that would set off
an alarm if someone cut through them). Could you perhaps limit your fencing
to a specific area, thus cutting the cost down a bit?
Other option, if the city allows it, is to set up the chain link again, and
hot-wire it. That should keep vandals from thinking twice about trying to
mess with you! Out where I am moving to, I am considering range fencing,
but that wouldn’t work for your situation.
Sorry I can’t be of more assistance, but you definitely have my sympathies!
