Stanton Heights Deer

You either love them or hate them, but one thing is for certain – deer are an everyday presence in the Stanton Heights community. One of the biggest complaints we hear from residents is that these pesky 4-legged creatures are eating their plants! While we may not be able to prevent them from entering your yard, we can provide suggestions for plantings they are less likely to eat. We asked residents to share their recommendations based on experience right here in the neighborhood. There are no guarantees, but the following list of plants have been approved as “Stanton Heights Deer Resistant” by your neighbors. Happy planting!
