Every winter I contemplate whether to install snow fence along my driveway. When I do, a couple times a year the strong winds will rip the fence from the top of the posts and I have to go out in the weather and reinstall the fence. I have the plastic fence and I support it to the posts with furing stips (I know wood snow fence is better but too hard to store). We don't get large amounts of snow around here. Typically , most of the snow is 1-2 inches with a couple 3-4 inch snows. So I was woundering if I cut the height of the the fence in half, would the fence still do it's job? The lower fence would stay in place better. As the snow piles up over the fence, wouldn't the drift itself act as a fence?
