Choose the Right Plants for a Deer-Proof Garden

Deer can be a beautiful addition to any garden, but they can also be a nuisance. If you’re looking to keep deer away from your garden, it’s important to choose the right plants. Here are some tips for creating a deer-proof garden.

Choose Deer-Resistant Plants

The first step in creating a deer-proof garden is to choose plants that are naturally resistant to deer. Some of the best options include lavender, yarrow, and boxwood. These plants have strong scents and textures that deer don’t like, so they’ll be less likely to eat them. Additionally, many herbs such as rosemary and thyme are also good choices for a deer-proof garden.

Add Barriers

In addition to choosing the right plants, it’s also important to add barriers around your garden. Fences are one of the most effective ways to keep deer out of your garden, but they can be expensive and difficult to install. A cheaper option is to use netting or mesh around your plants. This will help keep deer away while still allowing sunlight and water in.

Use Natural Repellents

Finally, you can also use natural repellents to keep deer away from your garden. One of the most popular options is garlic spray, which has a strong scent that deer don’t like. You can also use other natural repellents such as hot pepper spray or soap flakes mixed with water. These will help keep deer away without harming your plants or the environment.

Creating a deer-proof garden doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. By choosing the right plants, adding barriers around your garden, and using natural repellents, you can easily keep deer away from your garden and enjoy its beauty without worry.
