    Working on a new run. It's almost Dec here in New Hampshire, gonna get cold fast.

    Should I layout the new run on top of some unused lawn area, or the newly tilled garden area (I tilled in a ton of leaves, so no grass, just dirt and leaves).

    Not sure which one they would prefer more!!

    No matter what you do, they will eat all the green stuff and it will be bare. I'd put it on the highest spot, the one that will drain better and stay dry.
