We are building a raised garden bed and need to use wire netting on the bottom to keep gophers out. Can you recommend wood and wire?
We would like to use redwood. And is vinyl-coated poultry netting bad?
I don't see a problem with the redwood and vinyl netting.
However, how big is your garden? Have you tried square-foot gardening? It really gives you a lot of bang for your buck, and you could actually raise your planting surface up on a platform with potting soil and eliminate your gopher problem.
The 3- to 4-foot raise sure makes it easier on your back and legs as well. Less bending, fewer weeds, and better soil.
