First and foremost, use barriers. Deer are powerful animals, so any fence needs to be constructed with sturdy materials like chain link or wire mesh. Install the fence around the perimeter of your garden, ensuring it is at least 8 feet tall and has no visible gaps. It’s also a good idea to include an angled section at the top which makes it harder for deer to get over the fence.
Another effective way to deter deer from entering your garden is through repellents. There are a variety of commercial sprays available which contain strong scents that deer find offensive, such as garlic and hot pepper. However, these products will need to be reapplied regularly (around every three weeks). Alternatively, consider using noise-makers such as whistles and wind chimes in areas close to where deer may enter your property; these create disturbances which deer usually don't enjoy.
Finally, remove potential food sources around your garden as much as possible. Pick up fallen fruit on the ground or trim back trees near your fenceline if they have tasty foliage which attracts deer - this will reduce their chances of sniffing out a free snack in your backyard! You should also avoid leaving pet food or water bowls outside since they attract not only animals but also insects that attract deer looking for an easy meal.
By following these steps, you'll be well on your way to keeping pesky deer away from your beautiful garden. Remember that prevention is always better than cure when it comes to deterring wild animals like deer - take precautionary measures now and save yourself time and effort down the line!
