When the wild boars break through the fence

damn

I thought it would more effective than that to be honest. It helps stopping you cutting the wires and such at least right?

May I suggest exploiting the local children by using them as super cheap labour paying them 10yen per meter?
Once completed tell them they missed a few places and then halve their pay, as they haven't signed a contract they won't have a leg to stand on.

Either that or more weed killer.
I write a load of bollocks, don't take me seriously.

Sounds like your doing the same thing as what Im doing. I put that black sheeting under my fence but it isnt going so well. 50cm width sheeting suggested by experts isnt recommend by farmer.
Go wider, it does work...

Good luck finding a kid willing to do any hard work. Mine used to kind of try until she realized it wasn’t easy, then claimed she needed a drink and disappeared til she was so hungry she had to come out and try to whine some food out of us. Just Gives me “the look” and a load of schlitz if I even have the nerve to ask for any help nowadays....

Kids these days, when I was a nipper I used to have 3 paper rounds, worked part time at a Chip Shop and at the local coal mine.
Not really, I was too busy chucking tiny stones at cars and setting my toys on fire.

I really hope people don't take what I write seriously.

Sorry about the late reply. Been busy cutting all those weeds around the electric fence. It does help with not cutting the wires. I usually use a nylon rope attachment when cutting around it. Sometimes when you're cutting and day dreaming, you get the head of the trimmer all wrapped up in the wire of the electric fence. It does work pretty good for the first couple of years. Grass will start growing where the poles and sheet nails are. I'm fortunate to only need to keep animals out for about 3 months a year so I really only keep the grass cut around it for those months.

Haha, I like your thinking about the hiring help. Not too many kids in my area though might have to go with baba and jiji's, from what I've seen they have some pretty good work ethic.

Now, that is the width I need! What are you doing with that space covered?

That pic is the hill behind my log cabin build site. The plan is to pour a nice thick cement slab there to connect with a small bridge to the 2nd floor of the cabin. Good for BBQ, pizza oven, jacuzzi? :dance:

It has been pretty effective and supposed to last up to 3 years...so I better pour in the next 2 years!
