A tripod sprinkler is another ideal irrigation solution that provides the perfect amount of water for larger gardens, tall plants and shrubbery. Using a powerful stream of water pressure, this device can cover an area up to 90' in diameter. And, with its adjustable impulse sprinkler head, it can present partial to full-circle water coverage at different distances and densities, allowing you to supply water when and where your plants need it most.
In addition to granular and liquid forms, slow-release fertilizer is also available in garden spikes. Premeasured and specially designed to feed flowering plants where they need it most, Jobe's® Fertilizer Spikes will provide your plants with just the right amount of nutrients for 8 weeks straight. And, since these spikes transmit nutrients directly to your plants' roots beneath the surface, they won't be washed away during waterings or scorched by the summer sun beams.
• Since rabbits and deer dislike plants with a tough exterior or prickly foliage, they'll steer clear of your garden if it's lined with sedum, euphorbia or cardoon plants.
• Although rabbits love fresh vegetables, they can't stand fresh herbs. You can stop rabbits in their tracks with a little mint, oregano, sage or rosemary.
• While deer may have a strong sense of smell, they are not fans of fragrant flowers. Therefore, lilac, evening primrose and morning glories are the perfect natural deer repellent.
Another way to discourage hungry rabbits and deer from feasting on your plants is by applying different scents to your garden. Low-level animal repellents, like Messina Wildlife's Animal Stopper, discourage wild animals by emitting a pleasant-smelling scent that most rabbits and deer abhor. To use, simply sprinkle the granules throughout your garden; it's that easy! This solution won't just give you immediate pest protection after application, but it will also deter rambunctious rodents from your yard for up to one month.
