Deer Resistant

Deer can be detrimental on gardens. Nothing is more frustrating than seeing a garden after a deer has come through sampling your plants! There are different repellents available that can be used as deterrents. Another option is to plant trees and shrubs that deer don’t find appealing to graze on. Always keep in mind that if deer are hungry enough they will eat anything!
