The word exclosure means “a fenced area, especially in a wide open area, to keep unwanted animals out”
This word came into English around 1920
Background / Comments
Our word is the other side of ‘enclosure’, which is a fenced area to keep wanted animals in. It comes from ex- (out) and closure (barrier), which comes from the Latin word claudere (to close). I guess that in the phrase “good fences make good neighbors”, it is implied that such fences are an exclosure.
