I have tried so many things to deter deer short of putting up a solid barrier. I live in a scenic canyon with waterfalls so I didn't want to obstruct the view. Deer Busters fencing is the Best thing I've ever had. The anxiety has just melted away. Not only do I feel the relief of knowing the deer can't get my garden... I'm not as concerned about the occasional coyotes and lions coming in.

God Bless whoever came up with this product!!!

It works perfectly and it's not ugly. Not one plant has been destroyed in this area by deer since it went up. I also struggled with hikers picking the fruit off my trees. It's a people deterrent too. I will actually get to eat my own peaches this year.

If your suffering... dry your tears because this is your answer!!!

I intend to buy 300 more feet for another area. The fencing is super strong but practically invisible!!

Here is a picture of it from 10 feet away.

You cannot see the barrier at all from about 30 feet away so it doesn't ruin the view or make my garden look ugly.

I can see why you appreciate it so much. Your garden is beautiful! No one wants to feel as if they live (garden) in a cage. Just be careful that you don't walk into it!

Did you install it yourself, and how do you think it will stand up to a cold snowy winter??

Good question Margaret.
I'm all ears!

It's industrial and better than local stuff you buy in stores.

Sure sounds good, maybe just what we need between us and the neighbor so that we don't obstruct his view, which is also lovely. Big Grin
