|The only real way to eliminate gophers is by trapping them. You can build a raised bed but you will first want to line the bottom with hardware cloth to keep the critters out. Then you can set timbers or concrete blocks to use as sides and fill the bed with topsoil. This should keep those pesky critters from destroying your plants. Best wishes with your garden!
