Browsers in the Garden Buffet: Strategies for Dealing with Deer

April 28 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am EDT

Do deer consider your landscape to be an all-you-can-eat buffet?  These beautiful but ravenous creatures are a problem in many of our gardens. Join Extension Master Gardener Kathie Clements to learn strategies for coping with deer. Deer pressure requires that we think creatively about our home landscapes. She discusses deer behavior and how it can help you develop ways to better protect your garden. Creative hardscape options as well as resourceful use of shrubs and smart plant placement are covered. Find out about exclusion tactics such as barriers, repellants, and scare devices. Advice for making wise plant choices and recommended resources to guide your selection of plant materials is shared.
