Publisher Comments:

Since it was first published in 1997, homeowners, serious gardeners, and professional nursery owners have responded enthusiastically to Deer Proofing Your Yard & Garden: 66,000 copies are in print. In the last seven years, as the deer problem in towns and suburbs has gotten worse, new solutions have presented themselves. To cope with the situation and keep up with the latest in deer control, Rhonda Hart has revised her original book, adding more than 60 pages of new material on how anyone can protect their yard and garden from deer.

As in her first edition, Hart takes a straightforward, just-the-facts approach. She tells homeowners exactly what they want to know: which commercial repellents are effective, how to make homemade deterrents, and how to create a landscape designed to repel deer.

Since the first edition was published, virtually invisible polyethylene deer netting is now widely available and almost 100 percent effective in keeping deer out of the yard. Hart has updated her chapter on fencing to include this and other new products.

Hart has also refined her plant lists to spotlight those that deer rarely touch and also to identify those plants that are less likely to be tasty targets, depending on the time of year and where you live.

The chapter on deer repellents has also been revised to rank commercial and homemade products in terms of their effectiveness and how often a new application is necessary.

This new edition provides anyone who gardens with a wide variety of deer-proofing alternatives so that at the edge of your garden, you really can say, "the buck stops here."

Synopsis:

Dealing with unwanted deer is frustrating and challenging for even the most patient of gardeners and homeowners. Which repellents work, and which ones don't? How long do they last? Which plants are truly deerproof? What kinds of health risks do deer really pose? In this completely updated and revised edition of her popular book, Rhonda Massingham Hart shares the latest research on deer behavior and food preferences, as well as her hands-on experience in successfully combatting deer, from choosing the best fence to planting the most deer-detested plants.

Synopsis:

Dealing with deer is a challenge for many gardeners and homeowners, but in Deerproofing Your Yard & Garden, master gardener Rhonda Massingham Hart tells homeowners exactly what they need to know: which commercial repellents are most (and least) effective, how to make homemade deterrents, and how to create a landscape designed to repel deer. This book is your best defense against unwanted deer.

I recently bought a home with a 1/2 acre lot that backs to forest and, thus, I have a deer problem. This wonderful book helped me to understand not only what deer eat, but also what plants repel them, and what plants they will leave alone. It's also terrific at explaining why deer do what they do, and the patterns and traits they exhibit. The more you know, the more you can grow!
