To be honest, there are home remedy deterrents such as hot pepper flakes and so on, but the only definitive answer is to remove the animal. They can be trapped with a live trap and relocated, depending on local ordinances and restrictions. You might wish to call in a professional because groundhogs can be very dangerous, in addition to doing a lot of damage to your garden.
