Root Guard Gopher Wire Rolls is specially designed mesh wire to protect your landscape from gophers. Some of the common uses are under lawns and lining planter boxes.

Gopher wire is a hexagonal wire mesh that measures 3/4" across the flats of the hexagon. The steel wire strand is 20 gauge and galvanized after weaving for ideal strength and corrosion resistance. These specifications were chosen to resist gophers from passing or chewing through it.

Because gopher wire is hot-dipped galvanized after it is woven, it will easily last 6 - 10 years.

How to Prevent Gophers From Damaging Your Lawn & Garden

If you have a yard, at one time or another, you have probably experienced gophers building mounds in it. Gophers are small rodents that feed on plants. In a short period of time, they will ruin gardens and gnaw through irrigation lines and sprinkler systems in no time at all.

Gopher mounds in your yard are not only unsightly but can be somewhat difficult to get rid of. Stopping gophers from building these mounds can be hard to deal with. There are several remedies you can use to stop the build-up but not all work.

You can purchase traps and fencing to address the problem but not always successfully. Using baits and other toxic chemicals can harm wildlife, pets, and children. Before running out and buying endless products, know what to look for and keep track of the mounds:

How to identify a Gopher Den
By nature, gophers spend most of their time underground living in burrows and rarely seen.
Look for loose dirt forming half circles or crescent-shaped mounds with plugged holes that are normally off to the side.
Freshly formed mounds are a sign that the gopher is very active. Just one gopher can create several mounds in one day. There is a difference between a gopher mound and a mole mound. A mole mound is circular with a plug in the middle.

Customer Perspective:
“We decided to use this galvanized gopher screening on the new lawn because there was a lot of damage our previous lawn from gophers coming through, we have a lot of areas where gophers are very active and putting in a new lawn without adding some defense would be a total loss.

There are a lot of holes and damage from gopher activity in our backyard especially on the back hill slope and throughout the lawn. Its nerve wracking having to constantly battle against these critters and makes it hard to enjoy your lawn and yard when you see how much the gophers are just doing havoc here on our property.”

-Ed Park
Homeowner in San Diego California

Protect Plants and Grass with Underground Fencing
Before planting, lay down 3/4-inch mesh known as gopher wire under your beds or raised planter boxes.
The mesh will act as a barrier between the gophers and your plantings. Gophers will not be able to make it through the ¾” hexagonal mesh and this will prevent them from ruining landscapes and destroying plants

Stay Away From Products That Are Not Proven To Work
Even though there are plenty of predators who feed on gophers, installing owl boxes will not decrease the number of gophers to stop the damage.
There are no repellents currently being sold that will protect your plants from gophers. Certain plants such as gopher purge, castor beans, and garlic have not proven to drive off gophers from the area.

There are devices for scaring off gophers such as vibrating stakes, ultrasonic devices, and wind-powered pinwheels but have not been successful during trial runs.
Because gophers can seal off their burrows very quickly, smoke or gas fumigation cartridges are not effective.
Whenever possible, always use non-chemical products or those that are less toxic.
