Prepare for Rabbits, Voles and Deer in your garden
The animals are here!
You’ve observed the rabbit tracks in the snow all winter. Now that it has melted, you see the vole runways crisscrossing your lawn. Apparently, those little critters weren’t quite as into hibernation as you were this winter and wouldn’t you know, all that activity has revved up their appetites.
Protect your plants early
The best way to set your garden up for success this season and protect your freshly emerging plants is to lay the ground rules down now. It’s time to let the rabbits, voles, deer and elk know first thing this spring that your entire garden is off-limits.
Sprinkle and spray to keep the critters at bay
What you’ll need to do is spread a 12-16” wide strip of granular all natural Plantskydd animal repellent around the perimeter of your landscape. See the place where the lawn meets the wooded area in this picture? That’s the perfect spot to lay down a layer of repellent. Then, broadcast it across your lawn and into your garden beds as an initial layer of protection.
Enhance your soil with Plantskdd
Added bonus: The high Nitrogen content in Plantskydd acts as a natural soil enhancer and will give your lawn a little spring boost.
