Gopher Control Wire Mesh Protects Lawn and Individual Plant
Once mounds begin to appear in lawn, special attention should be paid to gophers and plants. Gophers could be rather threatening to plants' root system and would become a major nuisance in everywhere plants exist. Effective and convenient solutions include poisons, gopher trap setting, flooding, but all of these could only deter them for a while. In order to prevent gophers once for all, the best and humane solution comes to gopher wire mesh. Three gopher control tools are provided: gopher wire mesh, gopher basket and welded hardware cloth. Gopher wire mesh and gopher basket are both made from chicken wire mesh, or called hexagonal wire mesh. To make gopher wire mesh be perfect in corrosion resistance, vinyl coating chicken wire is available and be compatible with all three products.
Gopher Control System – Gopher Wire Mesh and Gopher Baskets
Gopher Wire Mesh
To deter gophers, moles, voles and many other rodents from lawn, gardens, play grounds and the like, rolls of gopher wire is perfect. We choose 304 grade stainless wire hexagonal mesh for its perfect corrosion competence, and then manufacture procedure of galvanized after woven serves for the same purpose. Small rolls of 25' length and large one of 100' length are available. And other sizes could also be customized under request.
Recommended specification for rolls of gopher wire mesh:
- Material: 304 grade stainless steel or hot-dip galvanized after woven with or without vinyl coating.
- Wire gauge and mesh size: 20 or 19 gauge wire with 3/4 inch or 1 inch measured across the flats of hexagon.
- 2', 3', 4' width × 25' length
- 3', 4', 5' width × 100' length
Application: commercial lawns, raised beds, decks, garden paths, play grounds, orchards, nurseries, public areas and golf courses.
To deter gophers and the like from individual plants, gopher baskets made by chicken wire are recommended. Gopher baskets have the same wire gauge and mesh size with gopher wire mesh, but the baskets have additional reinforced strips at edge to deter gopher. Alternatively, small rolls of gopher wire mesh could be made into a DIY gopher basket like the picture GCS-12 showed. It should be noted that the baskets chosen should always larger than the plants' root for growing.
Recommended specification for rolls of gopher basket:
- Material: stainless steel or hot-dip galvanized wire.
- Wire gauge: 20 gauge.
- Mesh size: 1/2" for mini basket and 3/4" for others measured across the flats of hexagon.
- Mini Basket for 4" diameter
- 1 Gallon for 8" diameter
- 3 Gallon for 10" diameter
- 5 Gallon for 12"diameter
