This method can be highly efficient at medium to high cost and low to medium maintenance.
The method can have a moderate longevity, depending the materials used, with a moderate ease of establishment depending on materials used and where the gates and fences are established.
The method has limited co-benefits although it can be combined with other methods, such as tree planting, dune stabilization or other methods where access should be limited to allow for development of, for instance, new grass lands or rehabilitated pasture.
Gates and fences can conflict with traditional access to range lands.
The method can require regular maintenance if animals are to be excluded from possible dust source areas, as in newly planted grasslands.
Can use local natural resources, e.g., thorn bush, instead of or together with manufactured fencing materials to reduce costs.
