Deer-Resistant Plant Installation
Choosing deer-resistant species is an effective way to protect your garden from deer damage. Consider these tips to create a deer-resistant landscape:
- Choose the right plants: Opt for plants that are known to be deer-resistant, such as those with thorny stems, strong fragrances, or tough textures. Great options are: boxwoods, holly shrubs, and junipers.
- Create a barrier: Fencing or netting can physically keep deer away from your garden. This may be a good option if you live in an area with high deer populations.
- Mix up your plants: Incorporate a mix of deer-resistant plants and other species to create a diverse and less attractive landscape for deer.
If deer have already caused damage to your garden, treatments may be necessary to protect your plants. Here are some options to consider:
- Deer repellents: Available in the form of sprays, granules, or electronic devices, these create unpleasant smells, tastes, or sounds that keep deer away from your garden.
- Motion-activated devices: Sprinklers or sound machines activated by motion can startle deer and prevent them from causing further damage.
- Professional treatments: Organic or commercial sprays applied by professionals can help protect your garden from deer damage.
