Critter-Proofing Advice for Rookie Gardener
We recently moved to a property that has a 30'x18' garden plot. I have been working on planting a vegetable garden and doing research on pest-proofing. We have deer, crows, squirrels, chipmunks and groundhogs. I know there are raccoons in the area although I have yet to see any on our property. I have also seen holes in garden and assume these are moles. I was thinking about putting up a deer fence, probably 6-8 feet high and covering the top with netting. Should I bury some hardware cloth as well? Is there anything else I should do? Any suggestions are appreciated!
