It’s easy to feel defeated when trying to create a garden that you’ll enjoy but that the deer will leave alone. Our sole focus is often simply to fill the allotted space with deer resistant plants – and we’ll buy any that are recommended in books, magazines or online in a desperate desire for success.
Yet the results are often less than fabulous. At best this approach can provide a short-term color boost, and at worst it can look like a bag of jelly beans exploded in the garden; a crazy mish-mash of color with no sense of a plan.
In this presentation, award-winning author and landscape designer Karen Chapman will explain why good design is more important than ever when dealing with deer. Drawing on years of personal experience as well as her latest book Deer-Resistant Design (Timber Press, 2019) Karen will teach you how to create beautiful, fence-free gardens that thrive despite the deer using 8 key design principles.
