I have 2 dogs and a fence that is wire over rail and does not quite reach to the ground. we just bought this house but we will only be here for a couple of years so we don't want to put much money into it. I was thinking to keep the dogs from digging out I would bury chicken wire around the perimeter. I also thought that I could maybe put a raised garden bed over the chicken wire so it isn't so ugly, and plant pole beans, corn, sunflowers around the edge to hide the wire fence. Thoughts?

Sherrie - the chicken wire on the ground will keep them from being able to dig. I was just
looking for other options. I really don't want concrete around my yard. The dogs do not dig unless they are unsupervised which they rarely are - I do have a 15 year old who sometimes lets them out then forgets about them, so I need to make sure they cannot escape the yard. We have lived here for 2 months with no problems or digging, I just need an insurance policy.
