Description


“Fear deer no more! The best source I’ve seen on the topic!” —Tracy DiSabato-Aust, award-winning garden designer and best-selling author

Deer are one of the most common problems a gardener can face. These cute but pesky animals can quickly devour hundreds of dollars’ worth of plants. And common solutions include the use of unattractive fencing and chemicals.

In Deer-Resistant Design, Karen Chapman offers another option—intentional design choices that result in beautiful gardens that coexist with wildlife. Deer-Resistant Design showcases real home gardens across North America—from a country garden in New Jersey to a hilltop hacienda in Texas—that have successfully managed the presence of deer. Each homeowner also shares their top ten deer-resistant plants, all welcome additions to a deer-challenged gardeners shopping list. A chapter on deer-resistant container gardens provides suggestions for making colorful, captivating, and imaginative containers. Lushly illustrated and filled with practical advice and inspiring design ideas, Deer-Resistant Design is packed with everything you need to confidently tackle this challenging problem.

“[Karen Chapman] encourages gardeners to be more creative, more clever, more understanding and more resilient in the face of deer pressure. And, best yet, she shows you how to do it.” —My Northern Garden

“Practical, inspiring, and beautiful. Chapman gives me new hope and tangible solutions for my own deer-challenged landscape.” Joe Lamp’l, creator and host of PBS’s Growing a Greener World and founder of joegardener.com
 
“The resource that deer-plagued gardeners have been waiting for. Essential reading for anyone gardening in deer country.” —Niki Jabbour, award-winning author and staff writer at savvygardening.com

“Not an encyclopedia of plants that the deer don’t usually eat, although the end of each chapter lists each designer’s or homeowner’s top ten plants. The book is much more; it is a selection of well-designed gardens that have dealt with deer issues as well as other animal issues.” —Columbus Dispatch
