Gopher Wire Mesh Prevents Underground Plant Damage

Gopher wire mesh is an effective solution for safeguarding gardens against gopher damage. It's crafted from durable 20 gauge wire, woven or welded into a 3/4" hexagonal or square mesh. When buried a few inches beneath the soil, it forms a barrier that prevents gophers from burrowing under plants for food. To ensure maximum protection, it's recommended to layer the wire with 1" to 1-1/2" of soil when installing it beneath grass or soil to be seeded. This method not only deters gophers but also promotes healthy plant growth by maintaining a secure root environment.
