Anyone tried Dig Defence?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I'm researching some ways to secure the run and wondering if anyone has tried Dig Defence? I have a chain link run and wanted to use it around the perimeter. Seems pretty easy...idunno

Pretty expensive. 

My last fence I installed was 5' high.  I used 6' no-climb 2"x4" fence and made an apron 12" wide.  Cheaper, and it was attached to the other fence, so no separation is possible, making it sturdier.  Many folks use hardware cloth, but 2x4 welded wire works very well, and is less expensive for apron material.

Oh, I see. Okay good advice. I'll look into doing that instead before I decide on the dig defence. I guess I will need to be reinforcing the chainlink with some kind of mesh anyway, and it makes sense that I would just extend it into an apron and stake it into the ground, right?
