SHOP TALK: Deer Proofing You Yard


Welcome back to Shop Talk here at The Featherweight Shop! We love our local chit chat with staff, gathering around the dinette table so-to-speak (because that is what we have!) and sharing with one another. In these segments, we exchange patterns, recipes, organizational ideas, history quips, gardening tips, crafty projects, and smiles about learning an old-fashioned way of doing things. Shop Talk is the fun tidbits of news!




Our plants and bushes are growing beautifully in our yards after giving them tender loving care, but we are not the only ones who are noticing! The local deer population may be making its way to our yards to feast on our landscaping and gardens. There are many ways to ward off these darlings, while not hindering the aesthetic value of your garden. 


Garden Design created a well researched list of shrubs and plants that ward off pesky deer due to texture, aroma and the poisonous compound of the plant! View the entire list by clicking on the link below. Happy Gardening!
