I recently built a rabbit hutch that I can walk inside without having to crouch or bend, with a sheet of laserlite at the back to allow me to clean bunny's hutch in the rain. Feedback from the bunny has been overwhelmingly positive, but feedback from the humans is that it needs to look prettier. Any suggestions for a weatherproof decoration that works well on aviary wire?
You could grow a climbing plant on it to soften it.
Hi @bradthumb - it’s a nice, large space isn’t it? @greygardener ‘s suggestion of a climbing plant is a great idea. Now I’m not a gardener, but an easy plant to grow, which is deciduous (shade for bunny in summer and sunshine during winter) - is a glory vine - give it a major prune around Easter, not a lot of water needed, once established. Or, perhaps you could combine with some of that garden screening they sell at Bunnos - should be easy to run some wire ties through it, onto the chicken wire, cheers Deb
Good stuff @bradthumb. Let us know where you are based and I will be happy to tag members who can suggest appropriate plants.
Good thinking Jason. I am in Melbourne. The spot is shaded in the late afternoon but gets good sun in the morning and the middle of the day.
Thanks Noelle for those three suggestions. I will give either the passionfruit or the honeysuckle a go, both of which should keep everyone happy. I know what you mean about rabbits chewing on anything. I found out pretty quickly why a "monstera deliciosa" is named as such, because to our rabbit it was definitely deliciosa and years of foliage have been reduced to a stump!
