<<this just might work.>>
My iris garden was planted right in the middle of the deer's normal path. I still find new footprints on a regular basis. The deer are relatively light footed and seem to know how to step around the soaker hoses and the bloom stalks. As long as I remember to put lace caps on the seed pods, we live in peaceful co-existence.
The neighbor dogs cause more damage than the deer. Unfortunately, the dogs decided to dig a new route to China a couple of weeks ago. Wouldn't you know it was in the middle of a seedling bed?
