    Hi again...
    Here are some pictures. My boo-boo from last weekend was skirting the mesh from out-to-in (it's underneath the stone walls and gravel). This coming weekend, i'm going to reverse the skirt from out-to-in. I don't have to remove the under-the-stones/gravel skirt, do i (which would mean completely removing the stone wall)? I can simply cut the hardware cloth out and replace at the correct outward angle? I would imagine having skirts in both directions wouldnt be a bad thing. Thoughts?

    Nah, if you've got the hardware cloth to do it, just add it on the outside.

    NICE looking coop and run! VERY nice!

    Thank you! It's a work in progress; I will post pix when I'm done. It's a garden shed and I've segmented off the back portion as the coop. It's a small property in a quasi-urban suburb, but I want the coop and run to be an integral part of the entire garden. I'm hoping it will be beautiful.

    Just add some to the outside and cover it with either rock or mulch. I wouldn't go about digging it up and cutting it off. Too much work.

    Love the rock wall!
