Deer Proofing

Enjoying and wanting to coexist with deer and other wildlife while having a garden has meant some compromise. Rather than fence our entire 11 acres we have chosen to erect protective fences around our favourite plants.

The Herb Garden

Mock Orange Shrub

The New Rose Garden

The Veggie Garden

The ‘cages’ are easily made with waste pieces of wood from milling our trees and 6 foot high deer fencing. While looking a bit odd it does the trick – we enjoy our flowers, veggies and shrubs and the deer can eat what wild deer should be eating.

 

 

Retirement Bliss

Kate and Anna have been enjoying their “retirement” in the orchard where they have a large fenced area to scratch and explore. They are doing a great job at bug and weed control and are actually laying better than ever. Looking pretty good too!
