Rabbit fence details for veggie garden
So after my battle with the rabbits last year, we are putting a small fence around the garder to stop the rabbits.
Currently we have made a base of landscape timbers, two timbers high. The bottom one is burried halfway on the outside of the garden, and it looks like the dirt be higher than the timber on the insider of the garden (when we're done adding stuff to the poor clay soil we have around here). I have heard of rabbits digging under. Does this happen very often? Do I need to add something that goes deeper to prevent this?
I was going to attach some wire fencing for the top portion of the fence. A) any sugestions on materials to use that are commonly avalible? B) how tall should I make this fence?
I saw one garden with a fence like this a while ago and they had their beans growing along the parimeter and climbing the wire fencing. Its was a great space saving plan, but I'm wonding if the rabbits would take the advantage and eat what parts of the plants they could. Would this idea work if I have rabbit problems?
