I recently adopted a dog on short notice, and can't afford traditional fencing. I looked into wireless invisible fences, but the layout of my property does not work well for a circular radius. So, my solution has been to go with traditional underground invisible fencing. However, it is winter here and the ground is frozen, though probably not more than 3-4 inches deep. I don't want to wait until spring, so I came here for help.
I am a complete newbie when it comes to DIY projects, so I have no idea where to start.
- I tried just using a shovel to dig a small trench in the ground, but it was too difficult to get any depth and I don't favor the idea of doing that manually around the perimeter of my 75 x 50' yard.
- I have a reciprocating saw; Can I use that to cut into the frozen ground?
How can I best install the underground wire for the invisible fence in frozen ground?
