Hardware Cloth Cheap?

Post  moldeen85 on 5/1/2013, 11:48 am

Where did you buy your hardware cloth? I'm really trying to find the cheapest price out there. It makes me sick how much I will need to spend on hardware cloth. Mad Ugh! I think Ebay has been the best price I've found.

Cheapest place I found it was Wayfair.com, that was about 6 months ago and we needed it to enclose a chicken run so we needed a lot of it. I don't know if it's still the cheapest place out there, but it's worth a look.

I will be looking at Wayfair.com, thank you NH.

Camp... I am redoing all of the raised garden beds I created last year (my first year) Shocked because I figured out some things I'd like to change in the name of efficiency. I will be moving the boxes farther apart, placing in straight lines, placing cardboard and mulch under my boxes to keep grass from surrounding my boxes and taking over my garden, adding a drip water system, adding a more secure fence now that turkeys, deer, and voles have found my garden, and almost doubling my square feet of garden. I had used hardware cloth under each box last year, but this year, I think I will be adding hardware cloth over the entire garden area floor of 432 square feet. I will be using chicken wire for the fence... and quite possibly adding a foot or two high of hardware cloth to prevent the voles from climbing in. Evil or Very Mad

It shall be fun.

Maybe a smaller mesh chicken wire would work. Say the half inch mesh. I am pretty sure it would be less expensive than hardware cloth and serve the same purpose. Might not last as long but I dont know for sure. Just a thought and it might work out.

I will definitely be looking into the smaller mesh chicken wire. I wonder if anyone else has tried it and found it to be effective or not with voles and such.

The 1/2" mesh wire is hardware cloth.
