Deer-Free Yards for Spring

Deer are adorable, but that doesn’t mean we want them in our gardens. Now that the weather is warming up and outdoor spaces are in full bloom, they’re creeping closer to chomp on what we’re growing. Keep deer away from your garden with these tips from Whispering Springs Nursery!

First of all, did you know that many plants are deer-resistant? Whispering Springs has a huge selection of beautiful growables that humans love but deer find unpleasant, whether because of their taste, texture, or smell. Not all the plants in your garden need to be deer-proof, of course. Creating a perimeter of these plants will help to keep deer away from the more tender plants in the interior of your garden.

If you’re dealing with ambitious deer, consider adding a fence to your property. Whispering Springs offers fencing services. Not only do we consider the practicalities of keeping large critters from your garden, we also take into account your needs, your existing landscaping, and the aesthetics of your home.

Finally, don’t forget about deer repellents! Whether predator urine, dried blood, or a noisy dog with free range of your garden, consistent use of repellents may work where nothing else has. The trick is to be really consistent–remember, you’re training deer to think of your yard as a danger zone.

It will take some effort, but don’t get discouraged. You can protect your garden from Bambi before he and his friends destroy all your hard work. Come talk to us at Whispering Springs Nursery in Jasper, GA–we’ve been doing this a long time, and we love to talk landscaping.
