deer repellent

November is here and that means deer season is here as well. Every November when the native food supply dies off with the season, deer go looking for what is left. What is left is often evergreens and tasty shrubs found in back yards. Every winter, deer cause millions of dollars in landscape damage. This damage can be prevented with a deer repellent.

The deterrent we use here at Berns Landscaping is winters longest lasting deer repellent on the market. This deterrent gives our clients 6 months of protection, once spray now will last you well into the spring. There is also no need to reapply in the snow and ice of winter, unlike similar sprays which only last a few weeks at best.

The active ingredient in our application is thiram, a strong taste-deterrent that will protect shrubs and trees from starving deer. Our application spray comes with a colorant built in to help tone down the white coloring of thiram. This allows for your plants to look as natural as possible while protecting them all winter long from hungry deer.

If you live in an area where deer frequently cause damage to your landscaping, give us a call today! We will be more than happy to give you a free quote over the phone for our deer repellent application services and answer any questions you may have! If you are unable to call you can also fill out our free online request form and a member of our staff will get back to you at your convenience!

September has ended and we can look forward to a spectacular show of fall colors. However, that also means preparing for the assortment of leaves that will coat the ground.  Leaf removal is an essential part of fall landscaping and goes far beyond just curb appeal.

Here at Berns landscaping, we offer both leaf removal services and a more in depth fall clean up.

With the arrival of summer here in Michigan, there are a number of landscaping trends emerging for 2015, and we have been documenting them in our Spring and Summer Ideabooks on our new profile! Whether your landscape plan falls under these categories or not, we would be happy to spend some time helping to translate these trends into real designs and projects!

Ultimately, 2015’s landscape trends come down to a desire for Convenience, Environmental Responsibility, and Outdoor Living!

With more technological distractions, a greater interest in the outdoors, and the size of houses decreasing, it is no wonder that these desires are fueling the hottest landscape trends.

These desires overlap in many respects and translate into designs that include:

  • Native Plants: Weather-tolerant plants native to your locale will grow and thrive during multiple seasons without constant maintenance.
  • Edible and “blended” gardens: Mixing edibles (vegetables, herbs and fruits) with ornamental flowers will save space and lower your grocery bill while creating an exciting, conversation-starting yard.


  • Starting Small: The popularity of vertical and container gardens is growing, as those with small yards or patios take a stab at growing their own food.
  • Sustainable landscapes and hardscape materials: Saving water by planting alternatives to water-intensive turf grass is popular, especially in drier parts of the country. Wherever you live, another great option is to opt for more permeable surface area that enables water to penetrate soil and restore groundwater supplies. (Think gravel and mulch as opposed to grouted stone pavers.)
  • Waterscapes: The soothing effect of water makes waterscapes a valuable addition to any yard. Popular designs include small, recirculating waterfalls, rainwater collectors, Zen-inducing Koi ponds and sustainable, low-maintenance ecosystem ponds.

  • Bringing your home outdoors: From pizza ovens to patio heaters, people want to seamlessly transition from living room to the great outdoors. Other popular items include outdoor fireplaces and outdoor furniture that is both waterproof and fade resistant while remaining comfortable and stylish.
  • Landscape lighting: Whether you want to wow your neighbors or host summer socials long into the night, landscape lighting is more achievable and sustainable than ever. There are many options for energy-saving and low-maintenance LED lights, as well as solar-powered lights that soak up the sun’s rays during the day to shine bright at night.
  • Wildlife-conscious landscaping: Previously mentioned features like native plants and waterscapes provide the bonus benefit of attracting and improving the lives of birds, bees and butterflies!
