“Will this meshwork keep the rats from burrowing?”

Thanks to Charles for sending:

“Around Dupont Circle today. Azaleas, hydrangeas, & some other kind of bushes. First I thought: new homes for the rats. Then I saw they were putting wire mesh first & then making holes in the mesh to put the plants through before covering the mesh with some soil. Will this meshwork keep the rats from burrowing? Won’t the rats just dig under at the edges?”
