Mole baskets around plants, how deep to go?

9 years ago

I'm making cylindrical baskets out of hardware cloth to keep the moles and voles from eating the perennials in one of my garden beds. My question is, how far down into the soil do they need to extend? I was told by a mole 'expert' that you didn't need to put bottoms on the cages--the moles and voles bump into the sides and head elsewhere-- but I failed to ask them how far down they needed to go. Anyone know?
