Yesterday we completed the new rabbit fence around our outside-the-backyard-fence vegetable gardens.
It is made of 160 feet of 4′ chicken wire, standing about 3′ high with a 1′ bend outward to keep the critters from digging underneath.
2″x2″x42″ stakes were put down every 9 feet or so, with extras where the 50′ fence section ran out.
Since we are putting this down on the-next-closest-thing-to-rock, we dug out huge slabs of sod from farther away and set them down for the stakes to go into.
Every year the rabbits made their way into the patch and caused more than a little havoc. This year we will be keeping them out!
After reading Cam Mather’s latest blog post, I hope I don’t have to worry about bears too!
