Recently Kirstin posted about keeping the deer out of her garden. I could totally relate. We have been plagued with them in our garden since we moved into this home almost five summers ago.
They are fun to watch and have around until it is time for the garden and landscaping. I have tried many deterrents such as human hair, raw egg spray, animal scent..... nothing seemed to work.
One of the activities in our recent busy schedule was this surprise from my husband.
He put in a 50ft. x 30ft. deer fence around my garden area. The fencing is 6ft high. With the string and streamers it puts it at a total height of 10 feet.
No more deer in my garden! Now, if only I had a way to temper the unseasonably high rainfall that we've been having. It rotted out some of my plants. *sigh*
My regular landscaping will have to just consist of plants that the deer don't like. I can't see putting fencing like this around all of those areas.
Do you have a garden... or landscaping? Do you have trouble with deer, rabbits or other critters? How do you keep them out?
