Book Overview

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.

   The BEST TX plant guide
Learning what plants are native and resistant to Texas and how to care for them was a challenge when moving here from another state. I often refer to this guide when selecting trees, bushes, succulents, perennials that are most resistant to deer. I bought an additional copy to give it as a gift. I recommend this book highly to any gardening enthusiast in Texas.

   Actually kinda limited on deer resistant plants
The best part was the introduction and discussion about plant characteristics deer tend to avoid and reference to the Rutgers NJ Agricultural Online Deer Resistant Plant Website. I had the feeling that the book was already written and then someone decided to spin it into a deer resistant focus. Liked the pictures of the gardens, although the book was more of a garden survey of people's gardens and their history than specifically directed for its entirety on deer resistant plantings. Each chapter had the story of the people and their gardens and then used half a dozen plants that were resistant to deer. If you want to peek into someone's garden, but otherwise kind of'meh '.

   Deer + Japanese Barberry = Lyme Disease
I was shocked and disappointed to see that the most common plant mentioned in this book is the Japanese barberry. It is invasive and provides an ideal habitat for Lyme - diseased ticks. Lyme - Trails with Barberry is a great way to increase the chances of Lining deer disease.

   Repetitive information on the same planting zones
I was so excited to read and purchase this book. The book glosses over the same low altitude, easy planting zones and repetitive gardening regions, leaving some of the most populated states on the Nation Colorado, Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska.

   As entertaining as it is practical.
You can learn almost everything online... but nothing beat the practical and humorous observations directly from the author. A book in the hand is like sitting on the porch with a mug of tea. Last year I moved my garden from the city to hectares and now have to plan a totally different way to garden in my lush herbaceous containers on the deck to the beloved borders of my dreams. Goodness, thank goodness for the experience and advice of a gardener who thinks like a designer. Her dry wit and helpful observations make every chapter full of astute advice. Now I won 't waste any money on plants to deer.
