    We have chain link that we are trenching becuase we don't want dogs pulling it up, but I am also thinking about adding an apron on all sides over anything I plant..I have searched for pics but they are hard to find..if you would not mind sharing them here, I would appreciate it!

    I don't have any pics but I can give you a description of what I've done.

    I have 2 new chain link kennels that were originally made for dogs that I've set up as pens. Since the kennel is more like a unit that attaches to aluminum bars we've skirted the entire kennel with chicken wire. I used a roll of 36" chicken wire and bent it in the middle to make an L shape on the outside of the chain link. The bottom of the L is burred about 5" and extends out 18" from the chain link so that if any critters start to dig on the sides of the run they hit the chicken wire. On the L part that runs up the chain link it's zip tied [​IMG]

    We have also used a dog kennel. Ran chicken wire along the bottom and attached it to the bottom rails. Then ran 36 inch hardware cloth around the sides, attaching it with zip ties. Here are pictures that may show some of this:
