    Bevey S, I never saw a 12" lizard but I have many lizards in my yard. I like them because they eat bugs. I've never seen them eat any plant in my yard. Can you post a picture of your lizard?

    I also wonder if you are sure the lizards are eating your plants. As Sherrie said, they are more likely to eat insects. Either way, you could cover the plants with mesh or netting. You may also sprinkle cayenne pepper and citrus peels around your plants. That deters most animals, and it's really cheap, so it's certainly worth a shot.

    Please do try to post a photo, Bevey. I can't imagine what lizard you might have that would be a foot long, and most that I can think of eat insects and spiders and such, not plants.

    I agree with Douglas. I love lizards in my garden they eat insects so the insects don't eat me.
