    As you all know, hardware cloth isn't cheap. I have been looking for the best price on hardware cloth and I was wondering what others are paying for it. Thanks

    Was the roll from Lowes 100 ft? I priced a 100 ft. 30" roll with 1/2" openings at Ace hardware: $78+. [​IMG] Needless to say, I will look elsewhere! [​IMG]

    The longest rolls Lowes carries are 25ft. They do have it taller though.

    Duh! I missed that in your original post! Sorry. [​IMG] That stuff is just downright EXPENSIVE! I will continue to search online if all the local folks are that high!

    Google Hardware cloth, I found one place that was really reasonable but decided to get it from Lowe's instead of waiting for it to be shipped.
