Arlene,

That is a fairly general question. The two primary animals that eat our landscapes are rabbits and deer. Rabbits can be kept out by a low fence or a couple of low electric wires with a charger used to keep pets in or out. Deer are a more complicated story. Check out the following web site for more info on dealing with these animals in the landscape:
