Put down old carpet upside down underneath the stone or landscape fabric. The old carpet works great.

Good idea with the carpet and shade cloth. I have a bunch of landscape fabric I will use. Thanks for the posts. Will 1bs be too big?


Mark, they should give your does everything they need when they load them up.

I don't know about the carpet.... once it gets wet, the backing of the carpet falls apart creating a problem for the deer if they eat it... Alot of dyes and chemicals in carpet. Also the ground wouldn't dry out very quick after rain and moisture in the mornings promoting growth of of stuff I don't want in my pens...just my opinion... I install carpet for a living..

If I do modified around the feeders and 1bs by the troughs? Modified won't be to hard in their hooves will it?

It's good for their hooves.* They need a rough surface to wear down their hooves.*
