I also use hardware cloth to cover the soil in my deckrail planter boxes, as our local squirrels like to pull my plants out by the stems, toss them over the deck and use the holes left behind to store their acorns, etc! I've caught the little buggers in the act . . .

Hardware cloth or sometimes we call it wire screening. Of course nowdays it could also be made of nylon instead of wire.

We also use landscape fabric for shading structures (here in the desert we actually have TOO MUCH sunlight and heat so shade is a necessity) and we build sifters and sieves out of different sized hardware cloth. I use the 3/4-inch size for coarse sifting for garden beds and the 1/2-inch and 1/4-inch for sifting my compost and vermicompost.
