Hi all -- we are in the throws of finishing up our coop and my DH is now at the point of digging the trench to bury the hardware cloth. We are extremely nervous about predators so will be burying about 8" deep. Question -- what is the easiest way to do this or is there just no easier way other than digging with a shovel and then deeper with a pick axe? Suggestions would be greatly appreciated -- there are a lot of 'f' bombs being dropped up near the coop!! Many thanks.
