A 10' wall. Unless they are particularly delectable flowers.

Or you can try http://www.deerout.com/?gclid=CJHroMv895wCFRkpawodgSz0aQ

Good Luck and watch out for ticks.

We use field fencing for our veggie garden and that works. Otherwise, you just need to share the space and look for plants they don't like .. lavender, oleander, rosemary, zinnia ..

You can try the following options:

chicken mesh wiring around the garden
deer repellents such as deerout and liquid fence
or this thing (my personal favorite): http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/scarecrow-sprinkler-motion-activated-animal-deterrent-p-3327.html

If you find this forum helpful, buying from the company that makes it possible makes more sense: http://www.smarthome.com/6120/Contech-Electronics-CRO-101-Scarecrow-Water-Spraying-Animal-Repeller/p.aspx

That's what I use to minimize squirrel intrusions. It works, mostly!

My mother used to keep them out by chopping up old pairs of panty hose. They can smell the skin on the panty hose. Other than that, a 30-30 usually works for me!
