Facing deer problems with your landscape?

Do you have deer that visit your property?  Don’t worry, you can still have beautiful landscaping, but you’ll need to pay attention to what types of plants you incorporate into your beds. 

If you have Hosta and Arborvitae, then you’re sure to have noticed that the deer have been eating them like crazy!  We suggest that if you have deer problems, that you don’t mess around with sprays and deterrents which don’t work all that great anyways, but instead plant varieties that deer tend not to eat.

Here are a few plants that you’ll want to consider:

Evergreen (and Broadleaf evergreen) Shrubs:

Juniper

Spruce

Boxwood

Pieris

Mountain Laurel

 

Deciduous  Shrubs:

Spirea

Lilac

Bayberry

Butterfly Bush

Witch hazel

Rose of Sharon

 

Perennials:

Nepeta

Coreopsis

Foxglove

Yucca

Brunnera

Sweet Woodruff

Lambs Ear

Bee Balm

Lungwort

Russian Sage

 

One last bonus for all of you who really want Arborvitae:  There’s one variety that stands out as being deer resistant.  Try “Green Giant Arborvitae”.
