This large fence protects 8 of the garden’s 15-acres from deer. Before the fence was installed in 2008, native wildflowers, ferns, shrubs and tree seedlings were disappearing due to heavy deer browse. Now you can easily compare how much more plant cover and diversity there is inside vs. outside the fence.
