Deer Wise Landscaping

Deer can be a major menace no matter where you live.  Deer-proof landscaping is rapidly becoming a major demand.  With that in mind, few plants are completely deer-proof, especially during drought conditions or anything that might cause a food shortage. However, there are a number of plant species which are unpalatable enough that, in general, they will be left alone as long as other food is available. The plants in the following list should remain alive in areas of feeding deer.
