When we moved here everyone told us that to have a garden and fruit trees, we HAVE to put up fencing to keep the deer out. After a lot of research and talking with other gardeners, we decided to put up 5 ft. wire fencing around the entire perimeter of our garden with electric fence extending another 3 feet above that. The berry bushes outside the garden only have 2 strands of electric fencing about 3 feet tall and surprisingly the deer don't jump it. I am happy to report that after 2 growing seasons, we have not had ANY deer damage.
