Stop being a Dear to your neighborhood Deer!
During your garden design you can build it with nooks and crannies. Often times Deer will avoid these tight spots. These spots will give you places to plant some of those plants you so desperately want but fear the Deer will devour. Over time you will learn their commonly traveled paths. When planting along these paths avoid anything tempting to the Deer. Once they stop and graze on one plant there are sure to find a few more to try.
For those "must have" plants that you are unwilling to part with, consider a product like Bobbex or similar homemade products. Many different recipes are available online with varying degrees of effectiveness. I personally can attest to Bobbex. I have used this product for over 6 years and it has never once let me down. Now, I have let myself down a few times by not applying it, but that was not fault to the Bobbex. One application of Bobbex will usually last 1-2 weeks in normal weather. If it is artificially wet and rainy then you will need to apply it every few days. Applying to dry foliage works best. Because it has a stink to it when first applied I apply it in the evening. By the morning when I come out it is dry and I can no longer smell it. Being an all natural product you can have peace of mind knowing that you are not harming your environment.
