Chicken Wire Fencing - Creat Apron or Bury striung into ground?

Post  Inca Heat on 6/21/2010, 2:44 pm

Hello,

I would like to know which of the above is better? I am thinking it would be easier for me to make an apron towards the inside of the garden area rather then the outsde, covered by mulch, rather than burying the wire 1-2 feet in the ground. Thoughts?

Um...better for what?! What are you trying to keep out of your garden? What type of fencing will it attach to?

Sorry for the vagueness, for garden fencing, to keep rabbits and groundhogs out. I have metal uposts, 7 feet long, 5.5 of it above ground, around a 25 foot by 16 foot area.

An apron would keep out rabbits and dogs if it was attached to the fence and staked down well.

Hopefully someone else can speak to the digging habits of groundhogs.

The only good groundhog is a dead groundhog. sorry, no more help here. My dad fought with groundhogs in our garden when I was in high school but I wasn't paying attention to gardening back then...

good luck!
