What Animal Garden Barriers Are & How They Protect Your Garden

When it comes to keeping animals out of your garden, there is a variety of options available to you. You can choose from physical barriers, such as fences or netting, to chemical deterrents, such as sprays or granules. You can also use a combination to create a multi-layered approach to keeping animals out of your garden. Animal garden beds are the perfect way to protect your flower bed from local animals and hungry wildlife.


Animal garden barriers protect your garden by:

  • Keeping unwanted animals out
  • Protecting your plants and vegetables as they grow
  • Maintaining the soil moisture level and composition of your soil


Which Animals Love To Enter, Eat, & Destroy Garden Bed Plants & Garden Beds

Without proper preparations, animals can quickly decimate your garden, eating everything in sight. So which local wildlife are ready to gobble up your plants and vegetables? Well, the most common animals and local wildlife that like to eat or destroy plants are:

  • Deer
  • Gophers
  • Mice
  • Chipmunks
  • Moles
  • Raccoons
  • Rabbits
  • Skunks

Which Time of Year Should You Install An Animal Garden Barrier?

When determining the best time of year to install an animal garden barrier, you should answer a few more things beforehand:

  • What animals are you trying to keep out of your garden?
  • What type of barrier you're using?
  • What is the climate in your area?


If you're trying to keep small animals, such as rabbits, out of your garden, you can install a barrier in the spring or fall. If you're trying to keep larger animals, such as deer, out of your garden, you should install a barrier in the winter.


There's no definitive answer to this question, as it will depend on your specific situation. That said, generally speaking, it's best to install an animal garden barrier before the start of the growing season so that your plants have a chance to establish themselves before animals have a chance to damage them.

Which Materials Are Used To Build Durable Animal Garden Barriers?

There are a few things to consider when choosing the right materials for your animal garden barrier. First, you need to think about what type of animal you're trying to keep out. Different animals require different types of barriers.


For example, a small fence might be enough to keep rabbits out, but it won't do much to keep out deer. Second, you need to think about the climate. If you live in an area with extreme weather conditions, you'll need to make sure your barrier can withstand whatever Mother Nature throws at it. Finally, you need to think about the aesthetic of your barrier. You want it to be durable, but you also want it to look good. The right material will depend on all of these factors.


The most popular materials used to keep animals out of gardens and garden beds include:

  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Stone
  • Plastic

What Does An Animal Garden Barrier Protect From?

An animal garden barrier protects your garden from animals that may try to eat your plants or dig up your soil. Barrier materials can include chicken wire, plastic netting, or even a fence. The type of barrier you choose will depend on the type of animals you're trying to keep out, as well as the size and layout of your garden.


Animal garden barriers keep animals from eating your vegetables and plants as they grow (animals and local wildlife don’t care whether it is the cool season or the middle of the warmer months). Local wildlife and tiny critters can also lay eggs or dig tunnels in your soil which may lead the way to the growth of weeds and other plant-destroying headaches.
