Deter Deer With Eco-Friendly Gardening
There are many eco-friendly gardening measures that are easy on the environment and effective at deterring deer. And using environmentally-sound approaches brings exponential benefits, such as added beauty and a haven for pollinators. Read on for tips on how to deliver gentle “get-going” messages to deer!
For an effective way to deter deer with eco-friendly gardening, establish a living fence around your property. Many bushes and herbs create unpleasant sensory experiences for deer, through scent, taste and texture.
Highly aromatic plants deer don’t like include Garlic, Rosemary and Peonies. Turn off a deer’s taste buds with Daffodils, Foxglove and Poppies. Textures with a strong tickle factor are Agave, Lamb’s Ears and Sunflowers.
For a denser border, add some evergreens deer don’t usually bother: American Holly; Arrowwood Viburnum; Caryopteris Blue Mist Shrub; Dwarf Alberta Spruce; and Juniper. Here is an excellent list of deer resistant plants by growing area.
The Obstacle Course
Outdoor furniture and garden art add interest to the landscape, as well as circumvent the deer’s beeline to blooms. Another way to make it inconvenient for deer to browse is to plant on slopes, and place container plantings on decks. Deer don’t like to climb, so they generally avoid plants not on ground level.
Perennials To Attract And Repel
Another eco-friendly gardening tactic that will deter deer as well as add floral splendor is a plant barrier around your garden. What better combination can one ask for besides perennials that are magnets for pollinators but also repulse deer? Blue Wild Indigo, Gaillardia, Monarda, Salvia, and Yarrow are some of the many examples of such garden marvels. Pollinators will thank you for preventing deer from decimating the blooms needed to pollinate the world’s seed plants.
