    We have covered some of our with bird netting but that is kind of a hassle. It has worked for our junipers though.

    Well we had a mole problem, so it's different from your problem but after i sprayed lawn treatment (weed and crabgrass killer) all over the place, even in flower beds around my hostas, no problems!

    Here ya go Linda; Mothballs for moles snakes,etc . Dunk a couple in the mole run & sprinkle some for perimeter protection from snakes & most anything. . Hair to repel deer for your flowers ( sweep some up from a barber shop). Good Luck !

    Just watched a video about a gardener and he puts Epsom Salt around the base of his plants. I've also read that dryer sheets can work to keep away mice and rats. Perhaps it would work on deer???
