There are several natural ways to keep animals out of the garden, including:
Planting repellent plants: Some plants, like marigolds, garlic, and onions, are known to repel animals like rabbits, deer, and squirrels. Consider planting these around the perimeter of your garden.
Using physical barriers: Fences, netting, and chicken wire can be effective barriers to keep larger animals like deer and rabbits out of the garden. For smaller animals like squirrels and birds, cover seedlings with mesh or cloths.
Creating noise or movement: Scarecrows, wind chimes, and motion-activated sprinklers can create noise and movement that will deter animals from entering the garden.
Using natural deterrents: Some natural deterrents include predator urine (like coyote or fox urine), human hair, and soap shavings. Sprinkle them around the perimeter of the garden to create an odor that will keep animals away.
Removing food sources: Make sure to clean up any fallen fruit, birdseed, or other food sources that may attract animals to your garden.
Companion planting: Planting certain plants together can help deter pests. For example, planting basil with tomatoes can help repel tomato hornworms.
Remember, every animal is different, so what works for one may not work for another. It's important to experiment and find what works best for your specific situation.
