I am moving to a place that has many deer, rabbits, turtles, foxes, and probably other things that loved my garden when I lived there before.
I am looking for options for fencing my raised beds and container collections, preferably reasonably priced and not interfering with reaching into the beds from the sides. The soil around is shallow and sitting on a lot of shale so sinking posts is very difficult.
I know someone who has solved her problem with a 24 in high wrought iron fence wrapped with netting around her whole raised bed area. The deer just go next door to eat even though the fence is not high. She has gates in it and space all around inside to walk. Very pretty and I suspect very pricey. :(
