I would like to build a chicken run with rapidmesh panels and a retaining wall, this operation would only take maybe a couple of hours or a bit more depending on the helpers.  The sandstones are heavy so safety work boots are required.

An early start is a must as the area gets very warm, some people may wish to stay only for an hour or so if they have a busy day.  The aim would be to complete the tasks.


  • Remove existing wooden fence
  • Add excess mulch and chicken manure to compost bins
  • Lay a strong wire on the ground under the mango tree
  • Build a small retaining wall using sandstones about 1200mm x 300mm
  • In desired area set up about 4or 5  panels of rapidmesh material in a vertical position, use stakes to join the panels
  • Attach grape vine to panels to add shade to chicken enclosure area
  • Plant dwarf mulberry in big pot

PPE is is required and the responsibility of each person; everyone to exercise covid-19 safety rules,

Morning tea would be provided
