    I am just starting to build my run. I know I shouldn't use regular staples to attach the hardware cloth but what about ones that are 2" long. I was thinking of using them every where and then ever so often also using a screw with a washer. Would these staple work?

    We used the 3/4 inch staples, and then screwed 1x4 or 1x2 boards over the hardware cloth and woven wire fencing, attached with longer staples. [​IMG]

    We used screws and fender washers then covered with 1" x 4" wood strips.
