  1. Hi gardenpower1. All you need is an electric charger that is connected to your garden fence, assuming that your garden fence is a wire fence and is not grounded in any place. The electric fence charger has two posts; one that is attached to your electric wire or fence, and one that is connected to a ground rod that is driven into the ground two to three feet. Basically an electric fence consists of wire suspended from posts that do not conduct electricity (fyi, wood posts do conduct electricity). If your posts do conduct electricity, you'll need to buy plastic fence posts insulators, aka electric fence insulators, made specifically for this task. You can purchase them online or at your local farm store or home improvement center. Good luck!
