We can keep gophers out by installing an underground barrier fence in your yard. Though it sounds difficult and expensive, oftentimes it is not.
To keep gophers out of your sensitive areas we dig a trench two feet deep and install galvanized underground. The gopher wire can parallel fence lines, be put around gardens and under veggie beds before vegetables are planted.
After the wire is installed, the trench is filled in and you can garden and landscape as usual. This underground barrier fence will also keep ground squirrels out.
