Hey y'all! I'm in the process of planning out my garden, building the soil and etc. and my friend was talking about how coyotes eat the watermelon in her father's garden. My heart sank! I plan on having 2 different varieties. She doesn't haven't a problem because she has a LSGD. We do not have one and at this time don't plan on getting one. My question to you is do you think putting 4' welded wire would help? I know they can jump over that but how likely would that actually happen to get a piece of fruit? We have barbed wire and they go under that. (They did not dig a hole.) If you think that will not work, what do you think will outside of an electric fence? Thanks for all of your help!

Hello,

Try looking at this site from Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife on Coyotes. It lists several options for fencing that you could use as a guide. If you end up putting in a fence please post pictures of it and share how it worked for you!
