Received and installed in short order.
My rise bushes are alread growing back!
My oak saplings leaves started to disappear. I thought it my be carpenter ants. I sprinkled bug killer at the base of the tree and the leaves grew back. One night went to the backyard checking on the new growth. The leaves were gone again! Remembering that I saw a deer walking through the yard I decided to get the deer cage. Shipping was quick. Set up time was about 3 minutes after unwrapping! Installation was easy, no tools required. All my leaves have grown back. Almost too easy! Great product!
Great quality, lasts for years. Only product that worked for us so far. Very easy to set up.
Totally effective! Highly recommend!
These worked fine but they need more sturdy stakes. I had some tent stakes I added to give them more stability. They work great for what I wanted which was to protect baby shrubs in my home garden until they get big enough so the deer browsing won't be a big problem. Easy to set up, they are almost invisible, just the right size for small shrubs. They do need a better stake design though, and I think four stakes are better than the three provided.
Don't take our word for it!
Thanks to Ramsay's Deer Cages I now have glorious roses without having to dash out and spray as soon as it stops raining! The cages have "saved" azaleas, young evergreens, and a lovely serviceberry. And they are almost invisible, easy to install, and stand up to strong winds. It's great to be able to landscape with what I want instead of what the deer won't eat!
I placed a Deer Cage around a young tree this past fall. In the two previous years there was evidence of browsing on the lower limbs and some scraping of the trunk. This winter and early spring it has not been touched. The Deer Cage is lightweight and securely anchored with the attached stakes. Opening and closing the enclosure is quick and uncomplicated which facilitates access for weeding or mulching around the base. The height protects the lower limbs and the wide diameter allows for a good bit of spread. The dark green wire enclosure is sturdy but virtually disappears when viewed from a few feet away. I will certainly provide this protection for the next small tree that I plant in order to get it off to a good start.
Recently there were 10 deer in my yard and over the last decade hundreds of my precious plants have been totally destroyed by deer. I become so discouraged when I plant some new item and it is immediately destroyed by deer. I have tried many different approaches to avoiding the damage deer inflict on small trees and shrubs. I have found that the Deer Cage really works and it is aesthetically pleasing and not difficult to maneuver and install. It is such a relief to know it will protect new plantings and yet it is not harmful to the deer or other wildlife. I recommend it without reservation.
The Deer Cage is easy to use and really works. Several of our young fruit trees were munched the same evening we planted them, but the one that was lucky enough to get the Deer Cage is thriving and happy. In my opinion, it's worth the time and the money to protect your trees.
I installed one of these last fall and it's definitely doing a good job! Previously I used old tomato cages, but the deer would periodically get their heads stuck in them and ruin the cages. The Deer Cage is a great way to get young shrubs up and growing to the point where deer browsing can no longer cause significant damage.
