Trouble with
Deer eating your landscape?
As the weather gets cooler and their natural food becomes more scarce, deer venture into many home landscapes and enjoy the buffet of lovely plants. If you have experienced this, here are a couple of tips. Scatter an application of Milorganite around your shrubs, roses, and perennials. This organic product typically does a great job or repelling the deer and feeding your plants.
Also, consider planting deer resistant plants for your future plantings.
