I believe creating a perimeter of welded metal fencing fabric maybe 1/2" in diameter sunken
18" underground with another 12" above ground will keep them out. I may be off a bit in depth
and hight, but I believe this is pretty close. You want to prevent them from going either under or
over the barrier.
After you have sealed off the area, you will need to eliminate the gophers that current reside within
the perimeter. I prefer carpet bombing sorties with B1 or B52 for this task, but the narrow minded
city bureaucrats in our suburb of the SF bay area frown on that so you may have to rely on the
much less entertaining trapping and poisoning methods.
That is of course if you don't have a dump truck of hungry snakes at your

Looks like my pictures are going through.
This is my favorite seedling that bloomed this year. The cross is McKellar's Grove X 03-009-2 (Jesse's Song x Rebound). Somewhat frustrating because the 03-009 plic x plic was solid and has produced solid children. This one has a "quiet little sunny quality" for lack of a better descriptor. Just can't bring myself to cull it despite it's plain-ness.
