Deer are a common issue when having gardens. People are usually quick to bring out barbed wire, or things that could be potentially harmful to the four legged visitors. For us however, we are taking the more peaceful route of things, making a 8 foot chicken wire fence. Not only is it safe for the deer, but they won’t be able to jump over it.
However, along with this, I personally think we should spray natural deer repellent around the border of the garden; just as a precaution. A common repellent used is a mix of garlic powder and water. They can’t stand the smell!
