There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Hi Ken and welcome ! Totally agreed w/ the fence, perhaps double fence? I personally live in a little subdivision w/ a 6ft privacy fence....so my worst pests are my big dogs and bugs. I thought my sweet and well behaved pups would leave my garden alone the first year....but turns out they loved the tomatos as much as I and most of the garden was ravished and had to be replanted. Crybaby Lesson learned! Now I have a sturdy rabbit fence secured to the boxes which actually makes it easy to attach plastic during frost threat and mesh during buggy times. I have seen a number of people on here that have a nice, completely fenced garden area w/ walkway and you can probably find their pics if you snope around a bit here. I know my mom has a huge issue with the critters in her traditional garden and was looking into trying a solar, ultrasonic deterant device, but not sure how effective they are.

Welcome Ken! Wow you have lots of wildlife around! I also live in a subdivision and had to fence out my dogs but had lots of ferrel cat problems. For the burrowing critters you have around, you will need to dig down and bury your fence about six inches deep and it only has to be 2-3 feet. For deer, there are a lot of options at this site: http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/photos/0,,20368362,00.html

Good luck with your garden!

Glad ya stopped by! As far as critter protection goes, here is a link to a thread here in the forum where I posted pictures of our fence. We don't get critters in the garden except for bugs. Gonna try to do something about those this year!

Same problem here Ken. Some many different animals had to invest in a fence but some are lucky to have just one type of animal bother their garden but I am not as fortunate.
