    problems with gophers in a bog

    I am wanting to start on a bog this year. I am planning to but down visqueen as a liner. But my concerns are gophers tunneling through the liner. Living in oklahoma, gophers are a gaurntee in the yard. I was wondering if anyone has had trouble with gophers getting into their bog liners? Thanks for your time

    Your best option for a bog where burrowing rodents are a concern would be to use a preformed pvc pond. You can usually get them very cheap this time of year from garden centers, nurseries or the big hardware/home improvement stores. Another option, if for some reason you need to use a flexible liner would be to first line the hole with stainless steel hardware cloth then place a layer of old carpet remnants between the stainless steel and the liner to prevent punctures. Avoid using the galvanized hardware cloth, it only holds up for about 2 years underground and is weak enough for a determined rodent to penetrate. I would aslo not recommend using visqeen for this. It is not a very durable product and will not hold up long term.

    My cat got one this summer. Last time I saw one was in " Caddyshack". She gets assorted rodents all the time but most are smaller and she often eats them. Then there are the rabbits she eats half of. With the beast in the backyard and the Princess on patrol we`re pretty much vermin free.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Use a pond liner. They're available in many sizes. It's a heavy rubber like the kind they use for rubber roofing.
