There is a lot of debate on what kind of barriers to install, knowing when to use rigid/heavy gauge wire is key. The majority of my barriers are installed with 1/2 inch 19 gauge wire. When I get into distance from ground to structure I use a rigid barrier above ground level. I "think"
this fox wanted in. Decent dig out, barrier did its job. Don't get wrapped around the axle on barriers. Is it the best method ..nope, but it works. Nothing is set in stone on what to use, I've had many dig outs and the barrier does what is was designed to do.



Smile, you're an expert!

installed this dig defence barrier for groundhogs recently, very small job. We could not simply pound it in, but had to hand dig due to unknown plumbing location, it still went in pretty quick. You can hardly even see it, but I do like the way it looks.
Finished product in pictures at the bottom!

Yo CallMeBob! How many grocery carts did you have to "scrounge" for that material? LOL

Haven't had a house/building/deck short enough to use it on. Need some 2-3ft for around here.

Maybe BigBob can set you up with some of his grocery carts? wink
For taller applications you would use an exclusion mesh anyways. Dig Defence is really meant for places where you need an inch or two above ground and have something to butt up against.
