Re: New fence - kick/bottom plate question

If it were me I'd just use some garden/chicken metal fence between the ground and the cedar. I'd dig down like 4-6 inches to bury the fence then staple it to the back side of the cedar with like 1/4" wide crown staples.

The chicken wire won't be a visual issue, will require little maintenance, isn't costly, is easy to trim and install, won't impact drainage and ought to be plenty to keep the dogs in the yard.

Until someone goes to weed eat the bermuda and St. Augustine grass we have.

I have no issues with a weed eater around chicken/garden fence/wire. It works great to deter our dog from trying to dig. It's a proven method to handle the issue. I got the idea from another dog owner who got it from another dog owner. I didn't just get up this morning and decide to make up something that sounds good to post.

He said he had mulch around the bottom of the fence. Hence, no grass to trim.

But that doesn't take into account the neighbor(s) on the other side of the fence.

To prevent sagging bottom rails should be supported with a kick plate.

If we based our lives around that kind of stuff we'd be in deep shit!

When using a weed eater on fence wire I have to use a lot more line. That would be my last choice.

You still use line? You need to look into Aero-Flex! It makes no difference if you have chain, wood, concrete, or anything else for a wall you need to trim around with that.
