Hi, we are puting the finishing touches on our first coop/run. We were planning to skirt the hardware cloth around the bottom and the cover it with 18 inch pavers for a finished look. Well as I was buying the pavers I was wondering if by laying these side by side around the perimeter of coop/run we could just eliminate skirting the hardware cloth? Wouldn't it do the same thing as the cloth...prevent predators from digging? Any thoughts?
