    I can honestly say this is the first time I have encountered that question! I suspect a fence is the answer. It may have to be buried in the ground as well as extend above. 18 inches high is usually enough to keep porcupines out. You may need to run an electric wire just above that.

    What are dassies? Think Douglas Hunt probably knows and has the right advice for you.

    I didn't know what they were either, so I goggles it and there was a picture of it too.

    Wow....glad I wasn't the only one not to know what they are. Guessing that a fence at 3-4 feet tall, buried with an outward L at the bottom and a foot or more deep and with an outward lean as well might do the job......./ with L at the bottom if the outside is to the right.

    Porcupines are attracted to salt, so I advise putting a large salt lick out of your garden and at the edge of your property. As for dassies, Whatever the hell those are, I don't know what to do.
