    Q:I would like to use this, or similar, to cover an in-ground fountain pump (4 x 4 hole) to be topped with river rock or landscape glass (approx 150 lbs). Will this hold up to the weight of that if I place a few supports (e.g., milk crates?) underneath?

        Q:Will this fencing keep out rabbits. Also, how high does it need to be. I am thinking 4 ft. would work. Anyone with experience in particular, I would appreciate knowing before I buy and put up. TIA!

        Answer This Question

        A:  Yes! This product is used by many people to protect their gardens from rabbits. 4-foot height should be sufficient for this use case. You may also want to consider 5-foot or 6-foot U-Posts to secure the hardware cloth. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-1-3-10-in-x-1-3-10-in-x-5-ft-14-Gauge-Powder-Coated-Steel-Fence-U-Post-with-Anchor-Plate-901155EB/205960883

          Make sure you have some study tin snips to cut this - and wear gloves. We used it to make protectors for our landscaping.

          Compost Screen
          Used 2x4s to sandwich this and fit it perfectly over my wheelbarrow. Been screening compost ever since. Good stuff.

            More spring than needed
            I used this steel mesh under a walkway that was covered with DG to keep gophers out. It has a lot of spring to it which makes it hard to lay flat. I found bending it in the opposite direction as it is unrolled works but it's not an easy task. A stack of flat sheets instead of a roll would have been much easier to use but would take up too much shelf space in stores so we probably won't see it. Overall it does the job well.

            The hardware cloth is perfect. I wish they stocked the coated hardware cloth. I almost lost my thumb when the roll snapped open. Be very careful as the roll unwinds with quite a force. I used the mesh for the top of a cat enclosure

              Small 1/2 in squares. Used it to up my chicken predator defense game on the coop. Definitely would recommend over chicken wire for coops. Snake free is the way to be.
