    Hi iwiw60, when we built our run we cut a slit along one side of plastic tubing to cover our fencing edges and held it in place with zip ties every so often. Worked well and since we already had miles & miles of the tubing and a huge container of zip ties, the cost was sure right.

    The edging you picture would be easier to attach because that tubing was a pain to slit...just saying there's more than one way.

    Thanks for showing the edging!

    Couldn't you use an old garden hose. Cut to fit then split along it length wise? I use old hose for alot of things around the barn.

    This is great! thanks! I've been considering attaching a chicken moat to their run in the future to surround the garden. An idea I had was the plastic "make your own" binder/folder retention clips. But this would be available in larger sizes. Great idea!
