Re: QUESTION: Deer problems: fence or sprinkler?

I bought a motion detector sprinkler. It doesn't stay on long enough to use much water but the problem is, you have to leave your water turned on all the time. I mostly have problems at night, so I kept forgetting to turn it on. You also need multiple sprinklers facing different directions.

You can put chicken wire flat on the ground completely surrounding your garden. They don't like the feel of it on their feet, so they won't cross it. They can't see it to jump over it. It's a pain to move it out of the way for mowing, if you mow around your garden, but it does work.
