Learn how this one method can help keep critters away from your tree and plants. If you have problems with deer eating your garden or fruit trees or cats digging in the flower garden. Or maybe it is rabbits digging under the trees.
Using this creative idea from Joy Lamb and her husband you just may be able to keep all of these critters and more away from all of your plants and trees. They shared their method of critter control on Backwoods Home Magazine so we can all use it to save out trees and gardens. They use livestock fencing laid on the ground to keep the critters away. It seem that none of the animals will walk on it.
The first step onto the wire and they back up and off of it. It has save their trees and they even lay it on bare gardens or just garden with seedlings to keep the critters out of the garden as well as away from the trees. While I suppose this would not be feasible for folks with huge gardens I think people with raised beds could probably do it and anyone with fruit tress or bushes could do it. The only thing it wouldn’t keep out is birds and they do sell nets to cover bushes and small fruit trees to keep the birds away from the fruit.
