Deer Proofing

barberryWe’ll help you plant a deer proof garden.

We work on the premise that the deer were here first and we are in their space. We then choose plants that we know, from experience, that the deer are unlikely to eat.

Let us know if you are planting a new garden and we’ll advise you on choosing plants that the deer don’t like. Plants with strong smells, thorns or a fuzzy texture can often be enough of a deterrent. Barberry, Lavender, Sage and Yarrow are all great choices and there are many more to choose from.

We have an extensive plant list that we can provide. We have found some annuals, many perennials and a good list of shrubs that the deer tend to avoid.

We’ll help you keep the deer out of your garden.

There are all sorts of organic options to try to discourage deer from feasting on your garden. You can try Irish spring soap (they don’t like the smell), scarecrows, sensor lights, and a radio left on can all be ways to keep them at bay. Come on in and ask us – we’ll be happy to share our expertise!

We also carry a product called Plantskydd, it smells awful but works great. You have to re-apply every couple of months but it has lasting results.
