Constructing deer barrier for first time veggie garden

Asked April 2, 2020, 7:48 AM EDT

Hello, can you please recommend instructions and supplies for installing barriers for deer, rabbits, squirrels, and birds? I’m in the Timonium area near Dulaney Valley Rd. This is the biggest barrier for me starting a veggie garden. I have what I need from your site for plant info but I’m feeling overwhelmed about how to set up the protection of the garden in the first place. Should I hire someone to construct the tall stakes and fencing?

We'd guess deer may be your main concern. If you look at the bottom of this page on deer, you will see information specific to deer managment in vegetable gardens and helpful videos on fencing options:
