Consider replacing some of your plants that animals have a preference for with plants that are deer and rabbit resistant. Although we have seen deer and rabbits eat these plants during times of drought, these plants are not as susceptible as others to these animals.
Examples of these plants are: Salvia, Vinca, Verbena, Yarrow, Agastache, Spireas, Lavenders, and Geraniums.
Funny side note: we have had one client who was having major rabbit issues in Eldorado who decided to leave a bowl of fresh greens every couple days about 100 feet from his garden as a peace offering for the rabbits. He said he doesn’t have the issue of rabbits in his yard anymore, so maybe he is onto something!
