From Library Journal
As deer populations increase, property owners are looking for ways to combat damage from them. Master gardener Hart (Dirt-Cheap Gardening, Storey, 1995) offers environmentally responsible methods for deterring deer from the yard and garden. Besides information on historical deer populations, the roots and extent of the current problem, deer species, subspecies in the United States, and the life cycle and behavior of deer, she provides extensive tips on "deer-o-scaping" (avoiding plants deer prefer, taking advantage of those they dislike, and incorporating designs and structures to discourage them). Hart includes plant lists and specifications for fences and offers an extensive discussion of the products and home remedies used for deterrence. Though other publications on the topic abound, Hart's compilation of research, product information, and source lists is sure to be valued by those dealing with this problem. Highly recommended for public libraries, particularly in suburban and rural locations.?Bonnie Poquette, Appleton P.L., Wis.
