About a week ago, my husband installed chicken wire around the bottom of the entire fence. We did this to keep our little dogs from running around the neighborhood. Well, since then, we have noticed that the chicken wire not only keeps the dogs in the yard, but it also keeps the frogs/toads out of the yard.
You can find the chicken wire (AKA Galvanized Hardware Cloth) for around $20 at your local hardware store. We got ours from Home Depot in the building materials department. It’s also available at Lowe’s in the outdoor garden department. We used the 1/2″ Galvanized Hardware Cloth in the 2′ x 25′ roll. This cloth can be purchased in varying heights and widths.
