Scafool on Jan 03, 2018There is a community garden where I live that uses netting to keep the deer from eating their gardens. The netting is like gill net for fishing. The gardeners string it up horizontal (like a blanket) just high enough over the garden to prevent the plants from being tangled in it. You might need to raise the netting after the garden has grown a bit. It is the only thing I have seen that actually stops the deer from eating the gardens.Helpful Reply
Katie on Jan 03, 2018We used to put our hair cuttings down around the area. Human smell is supposed to stop the deer.Helpful Reply
Jeanette S on Jan 03, 2018About the only way for sure is a good fence! If you plan to garden, a 4' cyclone fence would be good. If you are handy you can put it up yourself. Keep in mind that deer are pretty strong and can damage decorative fences.If you live in a rural area, try an electric fence. It won't hurt them, but it sure will keep them away.Helpful Reply
