Any ideas? A thin ferrocement is the best I've come up with so far.
Available local materials include:
plastic rice bags
chicken wire and similar wire mesh
Wood and steel are available but expensive. We have a 9 month dry season so a water-based barrier is out of the question.
Thanks! (And sorry if this is the wrong forum for this question!)

Bricks is an obvious solution, but end up being fairly expensive (~$100 for a 2x4m rectangle at 1 m depth). I'm looking for alternative ideas that would be cheaper, but wouldn't rust or rot away in the first few years. Structural integrity is unimportant - it must only be able to withstand rabbit burrowing.

Use clay to hold a wall of glass bottle together, and reinforce with chicken wire?
