(input needed) L-shape fence bottom

Postby Vata Raven » Mon Aug 07, 2017 5:43 pm

So, I read that placing a L-shape foot bottom for fencing to prevent digging in or out of a fenced area.

Would laying the L-shape fence bottom be okay just laying on top of the ground, or is it best to bury the fence 2-3 feet?

Thanks for the input.

Burying is good because then they can't see where it ends to dig under it. They can make tunnels though so you will want to check regularly and fill things in, if not doing a total bottom for the enclosure.

Since I know I will be moving, burying a full fence bottom just isn't worth the time nor money.

But I'm not worried about animals digging out, I'm looking to convert my garage into a duck house so I can raise them for eggs.

Ah okay, that should work for keeping animals out.

With the new house, I think investing in the buried fence would be worth it for an exotic. Or maybe digging a tench to lay stone block and cement in fence poles. I don't know, there are a lot of "what ifs". Guess the animal has to try real hard if it wants out or in with either method.

But has me curious if a fox will attempt to dig out to escape, even though I plan for a 18 x 9 meter (59 x 30 feet) give or take. Or if digging will just be a past time for boredom.
