I've been following planting directions from:

http://tastylandscape.com/2013/06/09/how-to-build-a-gopher-cage/

In SoCal, gophers are a big problem and sometimes when you go to vacant lots here in Phoenix, you'll find their characteristic holes. Once they find a plant (much like birds), it becomes a hot target for eating roots. Would you say that they are a problem? Is a gopher cage necessary?

I don't have any problem with them in my neighborhood in North Mesa. We just don't have them here. I think there are people that are in other parts of town that have a problem though.

I think I'll just put up some gopher cages if I see them (or see holes) and not worry about them until then.
