Are you having problems with deer damaging your beautiful landscape? Deer are probably the most prevalent of animals that can devastate a garden.  When planting, it is important to know that deer may eat anything, even plants that garden and nursery centers list as deer resistant.  The reason is just how hungry the deer are.  For example, if there are a lot of food options around, deer may leave your garden alone, but if they get hungry, they may eat anything on your property including thorny plants.

Lifescape Associates knows that browsing deer are a pleasure to watch, however, when it comes to keeping your landscape healthy and beautiful, they can become a bit of a nuisance. The damage done by deer is mostly seen in the spring due to new succulent growth.  That is why it is so important to select the right plants in your garden that will help in deterring deer and knowing your various options in preventing deer damage.
