    I have some suggestions... 1 Don't use chicken wire... too weak and openings too large.. 2 Use 1/2 x 1/2 inch hardware cloth and use screws w washers, not staples. 3 Put either a skirt of 2 foot wide hardware cloth around the perimeter and pin to ground... Let grass grow thru it or do what I did...
