Don't worry about running into our digging barrier with your lawnmower. The barrier, an important supplement to barrier fences for dogs, is made to lie flat and get staked down flat with plenty of foot-long ground stakes. So grass will grow right up through the barrier, and your lawnmower will pass right over it, just as though it wasn't there.
Generally speaking, in planning barrier fences for dogs, it is wise to consider the nature of the dogs and what you want your fence to do. If your dog is not bent on escape and not inclined to dig, you don't need a digging barrier. But if there's any doubt, get one. You don't want to wait until an escape occurs.
We sell anti-digging kits for dog barrier fences, two with metal hexagrid mesh and one with strong welded wire mesh. Our standard metal hexagrid digging barrier kit produces a 2 x 150-foot anti-digging swath along your dog barrier fence. If this is too long for your fence, consider getting one or more 2 x 50 foot kits; or if it is not long enough combine these two kits to create a digging barrier of the right length.
These barriers will suffice to stop your dog from digging under a barrier fence for dogs in nearly all cases. However, should you have an exceptionally large and determined digger you might like to consider our 2 x 100-foot welded wire digging barrier with 1.5 x 1.5 inch mesh. this is a stronger barrier but one that is also more expensive.
All these digging barrier kits have three parts; a metal hexagrid or welded wire mesh, foot-long kinked galvanized ground stakes, and 8-inch heavy duty zip-lock ties. The mesh is rolled out next to your upright barrier dog fence and joined to it with zip-ties. If your upright fence is already staked down with ground stakes, lift those stakes before applying the zip ties and use them as supplemental stakes for staking down the digging barrier. If your upright fence is wooden, get one or more bags of U-nails for attaching the digging barrier to your fence.
