Deer Proofing Your Yard and Garden

This book should really be called 101 ideas for hopefully keeping deer at bay. As any one who has dealt with deer in the garden knows, it is not one thing you do, but a combination of techniques that insures a minimal amount of damage to the garden. And, this book is chock full of suggestions about creating your perfect landscape and keeping your deer sweet sanity at the same time.  Rhonda Massingham Hart compels us to understand the deer and its life by going into details of their traits and habits.

 She lists deer resistant  plants and includes some roses which seem to be less appetizing than others. Not surprising her list comprises many herbs, such as Rosemary, Oregano and Thyme. She organizes her selections into several garden plans based on what kind of setting you may have.  There is a comprehensive review of fencing methods and repellants that are currently on the market.  And, while we do NOT condone the use of electrical dog collars or thiram fungicide sprayed on your plants, this is a most thorough discussion that should be read by all who have suffered deer damage to their gardens.
