Just one or two deer can make quick work of a garden in one night. Their favorite crops include things like beans, lettuce, strawberries, daylilies and hostas.
Easy Solution: Keep deer out of your garden or yard by erecting a deer fence. Create a double fence layer that’s 4 to 5 feet high with 4 to 5 feet between fences. Deer can’t jump both high and wide.
Horizontal fencing is a “must” for a contemporary, modern or mid-century modern home because it complements these architectural styles, says Danna Cain of Home & Garden Design, based in Atlanta. Vertical fencing is always in visual conflict with these styles, she says.
Pretty products to enhance your driveway include a small garden fence. The Emsco Victorian Fleur De Lis Garden Fence has a classic gate design, is made of rust-free resin and interlocks to curve around a driveway.
A fence around a tennis court on a Palm Springs, Calif., property is made of 2-foot square fiberglass panels that allow breezes to flow through. The client wanted an outdoor environment that was “groovy, cool and sexy," according to landscape architect Steve Martino and Associates. The project, with mid-century modern elements in desert style, won an American Society of Landscape Design award.
A stone fence on an 2.5-acre Atlanta estate, called Rivermeade, by Harrison Design, adds a design element without blocking views of the natural meadow behind the property. The residence has been featured on the tours by the Atlanta Botanical Garden and The Cultural Landscape Foundation, and was featured on a TV show, Tyler Perry’s "For Better or Worse" sitcom.
