A fence, eight to 10 feet high, is an effective way to keep deer out. However, fencing is prohibited in some areas of Lewisboro. Before erecting one, check with the Architecture and Community Appearance Review Council at Onatru Farm, Elmwood Road.

Sprays and repellents that are intended to repel deer are available in local gardening and hardware stores. At least one local nurseryman swears by alternating Bobbex, Deer Solution, and Plantskydd. The Cornell Cooperative Extension offers information. Call 285-4640.
