    We have a fenced yard and a small garden. There are very few animals in our area. Our dog is the only animal that goes there. I make sure I don't plant things that he will eat.

    and if it's deer, a tall fence... they will eat just about anything if they're hungry.

    Hi Barbara: Are your visitors eating your plants or just passing through? And, is it a flower or vegetable garden? If it's a flower garden, you might be able to put lava rocks around the flowers. They are pretty, the lava rocks, and animals don't care to walk on them much. Some do, but they won't use your garden for a potty. If it's vegetables, and the critters are eating your veggies, spray the stems with a mixture of 1 bottle of Oil of Clove (You can get it at a candy making store or some grocery stores carry it by the spices, and it only costs a couple of bucks for a 2" bottle) and 16 oz of water in a spray bottle. One taste and they will give the area a wide berth. It won't harm anyone or anythng, it smells great, but tastes horrible! It is also good to keep a pet from eating, scratching, or tearing up stuff. Hope this helped. Good luck

    Get a motion activated sprinkler such as a Scarecrow. When anything walks near it it will come on for about 5 seconds. The noise scares the animal then they are hit by the water. All you have to do is hook it up to your hose and put it Where are you? You want to protect. I put one at each outer corner of the garden and it scared everything that came near it.
