Sitting at home and watching deer wander around is something many people enjoy. However, they will typically not enjoy deer that are trampling and making a mess of a well groomed garden. If you have a garden on your property, then keeping animals away can be a challenge.

The most important thing about keeping deer and other animals out of your garden is to not use poison or anything that can cause harm. If the garden has any fruit or vegetables, then it is an easy source of food for deer. This means you will need to consider various options that deter the deer.

One of the easiest ways to keep animals out of a garden is to install a fence around your property. This will be a costly solution that could easily take away the view of a backyard from your home. However, you may want to consider using wire to surround your garden with a barrier. The materials used for the construction of a wire fence can be found at most hardware stores.

A cheaper option to keep deer away from your garden is to use scare tactics. Anything that can make a little noise is enough to spook these animals. You can string tin cans together or use an object to create noise when the wind blows. This would be similar to hanging wind chimes for your home.

The options you use to keep deer away from your garden will depend on the results you expect and the materials that are available. You may want to use the simplest option first as it may work the best when you need to address an animal problem with your garden.
