    I received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do Deer are one of the most common problems a gardener can face These cute but pesky animals can quickly devour hundreds of dollars worth of plants Common solutions include the use of unattractive fencing and chemicals In Deer Resistant Design, Karen Chapman offers another option intentional design choices that result in beautiful gardens that coexist with wildlife Deer Resistant Design showcases real home gardens across North America from a country garden in New Jersey to a hilltop hacienda in Texas that have successfully managed the presence of deer Each homeowner also shares their top ten deer resistant plants, all welcome additions to a deer challenged gardeners shopping list A chapter on deer resistant container gardens provides suggestions for making colourful, captivating, and imaginative containers Lushly illustrated and filled with practical advice and inspiring design ideas, Deer Resistant Design is for every gardener looking for artistic solutions to this challenging problem.We don t get a lot of deer up here on the 88th floor but our community allotment plots are over run with them as is our cal cemetery where the deer are eating the flowers BEFORE the people leave the service The photos are lovely and the suggestions practical and lush and a joy t have in your garden no matter where you live horse country looks kind of nice although Cape May will always be my 1 place to move to if I win the lottery If deer are your problem or if you are looking for stunning planter ideas, this is the perfect book to read or to gift the gardener in your life it would make sense to me, though, for the book to come out in spring vs the end of July to me, though by the time this hits our library, summer is well over half over and the deer have eaten out the allotments As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis outside of their incessant use by Social Influencer Millennials on Instagram and Twitter so let s give it there weren t any deer emojis

    Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and give an honest review of this book.Just what I had been searching for, a gardening book that had suggestions for keeping deer out of my landscaping and flower beds without the use of ugly fencing.The photography was great It was like being on a garden tour of homes The suggestions for keeping deer from munching precious plants and shrubs were good There was even a recipe included for making your own deer repellent spray The only disappointment with this book is that it did not include any garden properties below zone five Thus, many of the plant suggestions were for zones warmer than that Those of us with northern gardens in zone 3 and 4 have plenty of deer too Please do another book for us

    This is a great book about keeping deer out of your growing space I love how each plant receives a grade for how well they perform against deer Not only does the reader receive information about landscape design for a variety of climates, but also for an abundance of different style homes as well Thanks to NetGalley, I had an advanced PDF to read and review All opinions are my own and I was not required to post a positive review.

    As a fellow gardener who has been frustrated many times lost their gardens to deer, I m so glad I found this book I have tried many many deer control methods and planted many deer resistant plants only to have the deer win every time I ve already seen success with some of the recommendations from Karen Chapman This book is worth every penny and every minute you take to read it.

    I live in Canada so this book doesn t really help me but the photographs alone inspired me The author was very clear describing the different gardens I would love to see books on this topic for different areas Thank you to Timber Press, Netgalley and the author for allowing me to review this advanced copy.

    This book will save lives no longer will an earnest human have to work hard and lose the battle to enjoy beautiful gardens and every living plant to deer Chapman s intelligent and committed approach is fantastically refreshing She learned the hard way how to coexist and thrive and shares stories, experiences and photographs of other intrepid gardeners who have succeeded brilliantly I ve learned my own hard ways of countering deer and now know ever so much and cherish the fundamental information and inspiration shared in this phenomenal book Wondrous writer
