I have six-eight deer visiting my yard every day and though some vegetation has been lost (for example, English ivy), I have a great flower garden. I just spray a deer repellant on the plants I want to keep (I use either a store-bought or homemade one) and if I remember to replenish it after rain, there is no problem. Other neighbors who use the repellant also have nice gardens.

I wonder what it will be like if all these deer are on your yard.

I believe you! I have a friend who wanted to grow flowers but couldn't because of the dear munching on them. I saw a pic of her house recently and there were all these beautiful flowers. Plastic! Nice pics. Aren't they pretty?

These were found in almost everyone's yards. They were not trapped. They were there of their own free will
