Default Hedghog Highways, fencer failed to make

OK I need some suggestions. I asked the person building my new fence to make
a couple of hedgehog highways in the base, but he forgot, and I could not
see this till somebody sighted came around. He says now its too late as the
concrete Gravel boards are now cemented in, even though the fence panels can
of course be pulled out. So Should I try to dig little tunnels under the
concrete about 6 inches deep and line them with something to create them? I
don't really want to try to cut the concrete gravel boards, and then rejoin
them with brackets or something as for a start it will not last and secondly
a lump of angle iron on the bottom of the fence will look awful, and rust
way.

Anyone done this after a fence with a cement gravel board is built?

I am sorry that he ****ed it up. Have you already paid him?


I have my own hedgehog nesting place.

That is exactly what the foxes have done around my way to get to the
various gardens even though they can also jump from shed to shed roofs
and use compost daleks as a step.

Personally I would bother lining them.

Might be easier to cut out of the timber panel and build a hedgehog size ramp up to the hole.

Foxes dug a hole under the fence twixt me an neighbour so that they
could knock the peanut feeder stand over, but has also been seen
jumping/scrambling over 6 foot panel fences.

Hedgehogs are quite good at climbing, as has been shown on TV
programs about hedgehog highways so making a hole in the panel
above the gravel board would do. Just add a housebrick each side
as a stepping stone ifyou want to help.

A metal detector will confirm whether there is, or isn't.

I like that solution.


+1 (depending on what was on the other side of the fence and being
able to do the same on the other side so it can get out if it's the
only access way)?

Yes a bit beyond my expertise these days. Many of the things I found on line
were in video form, soar t of as you can see here sort of videos, which I
can't see that is.

How do you decide if an angle grinder man is going to do it right or end
up with two half gravel boards, is there a certificate for angle grinder
users, National certified angle grinding institute or some such?

Yes I do not know that, but I thought that concrete only had strength in
compression anyway, as some of the problems with a Bridge near Wales was
rusting of the tensioned cabling inside concrete beams.

Yes but the edges of the hole will crumble over time and the protection will
drop off as folk will never remember to keep an eye on it. Depends where
the bar is, Do you think a metal detector or cable finder might tell us
where they are?

Yes, but this is only a word of mouth agreement. His work is excellent
otherwise according to the eyes who have looked at it.
It will save me a lot over my declining years as the old fence needed posts
and rails every year and was going to be far more expensive to do than a new
fence.

Yes I assume if they were used then you would not get a lot of weeds, but
you might also get a lot of other animals widening them as well.

The foxes, I'd say will have no bother climbing over them, they are not
huge, I don't live in stalag 13 with machine guns at each corner!

I'll have to think about that. The idea I think here is to re introduce the
Hedgehog again since we have not seen one for over 2 years. Maybe somebody
could teach them that rolling up into a ball on a busy suburban street is
not a good way to avoid cars. Also people need to be very wary when using
strimmers as some Hedgehogs have had legs amputated by them.

You could make a little Ramp I suppose, out of wood, with sp9ikes to push it

A friend of mine had four hedgehogs visiting the garden every day.
Towards the start of winter, and over a period of two weeks, three of
them were found very slowly wandering around the lawn during the day,
which is not a good sign. All three were taken to the local hedgehog
rescue centre which was only a five minutes drive from my friend's
house. All died within a day or two. The people running the hedgehog
rescue said that they had many hedgehogs brought in from around the
local area which had died soon afterwards.

My friend will be re-populating the garden if the rescue centre has any
over-wintered hogs that have survived.

I believe that in some areas hedgehogs have evolved to run when caught
out on a road.
