Instead of a wall, why not have a wall AND a moat of flammable liquids? You could even use methanol if needbe. Panic button is you put a cigarette lighter to a trail of the stuff, and it ignites the walkers stuck in a 4' deep trench...

Most flammable liquids are quite volatile and would not last very long in the moat waiting to be lit up. Plus who wants to dig a 4' deep moat around a compound when there is plenty of other work to do.

One thing that always bugged me was that they lured all those zombies in the jail and stabbed them through the fence. Why didn't they do a daily sweep of the exterior fence and kill the walkers there without issues? Or do the same thing inside...just lure them to the chosen fence and stab away through the fences?

A moat should work well but if they don't have the heavy equipment, digging it could be a multi generation project with the amount of manpower they have.

If they have an excavator, the side cast material could be used to strengthen any walls against non zombies invaders.

Methanol would evaporate fast so your zombie moat would work for a week or so. I would go corrosive such as hydrochloric, floric, sulfuric acid or sodium methlyate

deterrent; make outsiders think the prison is still overrun

I have a problem with leaving ANY zombies still walking. Dale got bit by the one Carl didn't kill. every walker you don't dispatch has the potential to infect more at a geometric rate. quicker you kill them off, the fewer fresh ones pop up and eventually the infection will run its course

BTW was I the only one excited to see that the head of the newcomers into the prison was none other than legendary muscle "Cutty" from the Wire?

I think with heavy equipment one could make a decent moat and fill it with plain old water and some flesh-eating fish. The walkers in TWD seem to exhibit some intelligence but I think any walker dumb enough to fall in would be dispatched by the fish. Add a draw-bridge and boom you've got a castle.

I man eating fish might be hard to come by where they are, but in the southwest alligators might be good. Unless eating zombies made them into gator zombies! That could be bad.

I think in the middle ages the moats were full of stagnant water a lot of the time.
People trying to invade would be susceptible to disease or at least life threatening infection in battle wounds.
That would be helpful in defending against other survivors who tried to overrun your base camp.
