I'm in the planning phase of building my coop and run. I've read that the hardware cloth for the run should be buried 12" to prevent digging predators from getting in. My problem is that I have lots of trees with shallow roots (some roots are pretty thick). Has anyone else encountered this issue? The only thing I have been able to come up with so far is to lay hardware cloth on the ground and then cover it with dirt. Does anyone foresee any problems doing that?
