The local building supply had reasonably price hardware cloth. They had both 1/2" on 1/4". The also had poultry netting and welded wire. I was surprise that there pricing was pretty close to the chain stores. I prefer to spend my money locally so I will buy whatever I decide to use there.
I am thinking of covering the run in 1/2" hardware cloth and then wrapping the lower 4 feet in the welded wire to add more strength. Mostly concerned with the neighbor dogs. The poultry netting just doesn't seem to be strong enough and I don't think it will last.
At this time I don't really want to setup a large run.
