Mammals versus My Garden

Mammals versus My Garden

This year I will finally be able to have a real garden, not just a few plants on a 3rd-story fire escape. I'm excited, but concerned that I'll just lose everything right off the bat due to the high number of deer, squirrels, and other furry neighbors. I'm seeking as much advice as I can gather on non-chemical ways to repel these unwanted guests. I know a fence would be ideal for keeping out the deer, but I'm not sure if that's going to materialize this year. Thanks!
