Learn how to protect your garden from wildlife.

When creating your home garden, you want a place where you can grow beautiful flowers or even fresh produce.  The last thing you want to happen is a pesky deer or raccoon ruining all of your hard work.  The first thing you need to do when protecting your garden from wildlife is to identify which critter is damaging it.  Then you can design your fence to prevent that specific animal from getting inside your garden.  Luckily, there a few ways to prevent a variety of wildlife creatures from damaging your flowers and produce.  


Deer are one the most common wildlife animals that damage homeowner’s gardens.  If you notice that deer are infiltrating your garden, it is critical that you install a fence that is high enough to prevent them from jumping over it.  An effective option is an eight to ten-foot tall fence that is slanted at a 45-degree angle.  You should also install your fence tightly underneath the ground to prevent deer from digging and wiggling underneath the structure.

Cats and Dogs

Your neighbor’s pets might seem nice and friendly until they come into your garden and ruin all of your precious hard work.  Luckily, it is simple to prevent cats and dogs from coming into your garden.  All you need is wire mesh fence that is three feet or higher which will prevent catsfrom climbing it and dogs from knocking it over.  Make sure to install it low to the ground and at least two feet wide to block dogs from digging under it.


These creatures are known for climbing and digging, so you need to a fence with a floppy top and a barrier.  Make sure the fence is installed in a C-shape and is at least four feet tall so that it falls towards the raccoon if they try to climb.  You can also install wire around any three to four-foot fence.  Place any material that can cling to their feet such as bird netting.
