Last month I mentioned that I wanted to fasten hardware cloth to the area under our deck to keep out furry little animals and snakes.

Repairing the chewed wiring for our deck lights cost us a pretty penny and we want to avoid that problem again.

This part was done several years ago.  It was cool enough yesterday to finish this side.

The ground was as hard as cement as we haven’t had much rain lately.

The rocky soil (if you can call what we have “soil”) and the slope of the ground meant the hardware cloth had to be cut to different heights.  Plus we had a mechanical failure with the heavy-duty staple gun but Mr. Aitch fixed it.

This side shouldn’t be as difficult as the ground is relatively even.  I want to scrub this section first and will be much easier to clean before the hardware cloth goes on.  Then all of this will be painted black so that it disappears.
