A fence is the only sure way to keep deer from eating flowers, or vegetables from your garden. Unfortunately, deer will hop a 6' fence if they can see good things to eat on the other side, so the fence has to be at least 8' high, or have a horizontal outrigger that overhangs from the top. Two parallel 5' fences, 4' apart will work as well. An electric fence will also keep them away.
