Deer Repellent Services

Deer browsing can be a significant challenge for homeowners who want to maintain healthy and attractive shrubs in their landscapes. Deer can cause extensive damage to shrubs by feeding on foliage, buds, and branches, which can result in disfigured or even dead plants. At Back to Nature Landscaping, we offer effective deer repellent strategies to protect your shrubs and preserve the beauty and health of your landscape.

The Impact of Deer Browsing

Deer are known to feed on a wide variety of shrubs, especially during times when food is scarce. The damage caused by deer browsing can include:

  • Defoliation: Deer feed on the leaves, reducing the shrub’s ability to photosynthesize and grow.
  • Bud Damage: Consuming buds can prevent flowers and new growth, leading to reduced plant vitality.
  • Branch Breakage: As deer pull on branches to reach foliage, they can break and damage the structure of the shrub.
  • Disfigurement: Continued browsing can result in uneven, unattractive growth patterns.
  • Plant Death: Severe or repeated browsing can weaken shrubs to the point where they cannot recover, leading to their death.

Effective Deer Repellent Strategies

To protect your shrubs from deer damage, we employ a variety of effective deer repellent strategies tailored to your specific landscape needs:

1. Deer Repellent Sprays

We use commercially available deer repellent sprays that are safe for plants and effective in deterring deer. These sprays typically contain natural ingredients that have strong odors or tastes that deer find unpleasant.

Our team applies these repellents regularly, especially during peak browsing seasons, to ensure continuous protection.

2. Physical Barriers

Physical barriers can be a highly effective method to keep deer away from your shrubs.

3. Plant Selection and Placement

Choosing deer-resistant plants and strategic placement of shrubs can reduce the likelihood of deer damage. Our experts can advise on:

  • Deer-Resistant Shrubs: Incorporating plants that are less appealing to deer into your landscape design.
  • Companion Planting: Placing less desirable plants around your shrubs to deter deer from browsing.
