welded utility wire or no-climb horse fencing?

I'm replacing my garden fence. We were going to use welded utility wire, but in my online searches, I'm wondering if the no-climb horse fencing would be just as good? I think its woven, not welded.
Have any of you used that type of fencing? Thanks.

If price is no object, go for the gold and use the horse fencing.

Get the best grade of galvinization that you can, for the longest life. Replacing fencing isn't THAT much fun!

If you're buying from HD or Lowes, check the source. If from China, the galvanized coating doesn't hold up well.

Thanks Sue! Its pretty hard to find much good anything anywhere these days!

Depending on what you're trying to keep in or out, you might consider livestock field fencing, which is not as pretty as welded fencing, but has spaces between the wires big enough to put your hand through, making it more useful as a trellis for veggies (similar in spacing to the sturdier cattle or hog panels) It comes in big, heavy rolls.
