I am building my first coop and digging a trench to bury the hardware cloth isn't an option with our ground so I. Going the apron route. Is it enough to overlap pieces of hardware cloth by five or six inches on the grounds d or do I need to secure the cloth together somehow to mimic one continuous piece? If I do have to attach it, any suggestions? On the coop itself I did stitch pieces together with wire, but that seems very difficult to do with long pieces laying on the ground. Thanks!
