I think this company might be an answer to my prayers. While I love to see the deer or rabbits I love them elsewhere or on someone else’s lawn. After my initial spraying the Deer has come but have not chosen to eat my plants I hope it continues this way
14:51 12 May 21
Jeff and his staff are professional, informative and a pleasure to work with. This is our first season using their services and look forward to a beautiful yard free from deer damage.

Jeff was very friendly and did a good job.
19:11 01 May 21
I am amazed at this result so far. Glad that there is very little damage this year at this time compared to previous years of struggle to maintain my landscape without damage.
22:23 27 Apr 21
Well worth it! Jeff does a terrific job and it's really help protect our vegetable garden and other plants!
20:07 27 Apr 21
this will be our 2nd year using this service and I can't say enough great things about this company. Service is wonderful and yes it really works! For the past 15 years the deer in our area have been kept very full eating all of my plants. Last year not one plant was eaten. I had never seen my yard look so beautiful.

I met Jeff at the Home and Garden show March 2020. I talked to him and took information, but I was skeptical. After the deer ate my annuals on my front porch yet again, I decided to give him a try. He believes in his product so much that he offers a free trial. It works after a one time spray. Of course I get the maintenance monthly sprays to keep the deer away and I have not seen them since! Jeff is easy to work with and always quick to respond to questions.I noticed this season that rhododendron bushes that have not bloomed for years have bloomed this spring. I asked Jeff if it was due to my starting the spray earlier this season than I did last season. He actually told me that the spray from the end of the Fall protected the plants from the deer eating them during the winter and that is why I am seeing them bloom! He's very knowledgeable about the deer and his product.

This service is amazing & I can enjoy all my favorite trees & plants I love!
01:13 14 Apr 21
19:34 13 Apr 21
I received a free application as a trial and the deer have just been passing us by! Every communication with Jeffrey has been prompt and courteous. I am looking forward to a summer where I can enjoy all my plants and flowers.
18:03 12 Apr 21
19:10 09 Apr 21
I called to inquire about deer control services. My questions were answered in a courteous and knowledgeable manner. I was given the free trial service on the same date. I received information immediately via printed data leftat my front door, plus two informative emails.I am anxious to try the summer service package.

The only effective way to control the deer that I have found!

En Garde Deer Defense really works great. I highly recommend them to any home owner who is sick and tired of having everything in the yard eaten and destroyed by deer.
19:07 06 Apr 21
Year after year I have struggled to have beautiful plant. shrubs and, flowers. I have tried EVERYTHING but nothing seemed to work. A friend suggested I call En Garde Deer Defense. The results are amazing! This will be our second season with En Garde Deer Defense and I can't wait to have beautiful flowering plants again! Thank you, Jeff!
14:35 29 Mar 21
We would not be able to enjoy our garden completely without En Garde Deer Defense. We live in a highly populated deer area with woods behind the house. I have many hostas and lillies that the deer normally love to eat but now they usually just walk past our yard.
00:57 25 Mar 21
Great company, great people. I love knowing that I won’t wake up to everything eaten. I also have 2 small dogs that I don’t want hurt or sick because of the deer. I would very highly recommend. Thank you Jeff.
15:17 20 Mar 21
Highly recommend! My landscape is thriving! Excellent service!
12:39 14 Mar 21
We used the services of En Garde Deer Defense for the past two years. After 14 years of deer issues at this address,, we have not had any deer issues since using this service. We just renewed for 2021.
18:52 04 Feb 21
18:22 11 Jan 21
We went from landscaping that looked like 22 deer were eating it regularly, to a beautiful yard in just a single year! We still see the deer, they just don't decimate our foliage. I you are looking for a natural, eco-friendly solution, I highly recommend En Garde Deer Defense
00:46 02 Jan 21
The service is friendly and very consciencious about their work. I had new green giant arborvitaes planted last summer and the deer gave me the blues. Since I have been using En Garde Deer Defense, I have not seen any deer in my yard. I see them walk by but they do not botter my trees, shrubs, or plants. So far, I love this service.
21:35 07 Dec 20
Very pleased with this company and the results of Jeff's work! Not a "BITE" out of anything!

So glad we have En Garde Deer Defense onboardJeff is such an honest considerate guyHe's very professional and will go the extra mile to helpyour property be deer freeWe could never have flowers before JeffHis technique is very effective we now havea beautiful landscape with flowers.Thanks Jeff
17:14 28 Nov 20
We have had En Garde Deer Defense for three months. During that time our usual deer-infested yard has been free from the animals. Lets hope this continues through the winter and spring.
21:40 18 Nov 20
We have used the En Garde service for a few years now. The hostas and geraniums, along with all of the other plants, go untouched by the deer and other plant loving creatures. Whatever he uses, really works. I have referred him to the neighbors, who are equally happy with the service.
13:20 17 Nov 20
15:01 16 Nov 20
En Garde's treatment has saved our yard from being eaten by deer - we were overrun with them before. Now they go right past us!! Highly recommended.
20:38 14 Nov 20
Jeff is very knowledgeable about deer defense. We are 3 doors down from a National park. Deer love our neighborhood. This is our third year with deer defense. After putting in all new shrubbery wanted to make sure we didn't have any problems and we haven't. You can't go wrong with this service and product. Highly recommend it.

17:55 04 Nov 20
Distinctive difference after spraying started mid season as the flowers are finally able to bloom! Jeff is knowledgeable and informed us what flowers or plants would not recover until next season based on their growing patterns. We started En Garde Deer Defense services mid summer season 2020.
21:43 03 Nov 20
En Garde Deer Defense is the first deer defense that actually works. We have tried everything. It is fantastic. None of our plants and flowers were eaten by the deer. I highly recommend En Garde Deer Defense
15:18 03 Nov 20
Awesome service! I cannot tell you how happy we are to have colorful flowers this year instead of a salad bar for deers. Having kids and pets and knowing they are safe with this treatment is the icing on the cake.Jeff and his team have been great and always communicate the timing of their service.I give the. My highest recommendation.

Outstanding customer service !Thank you !!!
18:42 23 Oct 20
Jeff's product is effective and lasting. He is pleasant to deal with.
15:53 22 Oct 20
My experience with En Garde Deer Defense has been amazing! Since beginning with En Garde there has bee no issue with deer in our yard. The cost is reasonable and well worth the expense!
12:47 21 Oct 20
01:22 14 Oct 20
Jeff protected our plants all season. We have deer around the neighborhood almost daily and had no problems. I did not want to use any fencing to protect our investment and Jeff's spray application was the ticket. Jeff and his product are amazing.
01:16 14 Oct 20
This is an amazing product. My daughter was using En Garde so when we moved into the area I decided to also use the service. Deer have not touched anything! Jeff is very customer focused and friendly.
16:26 09 Oct 20
Jeff is very professional, friendly and thorough in his description of his products and how they work. I am very optimistic that the products will work, based on the referral I received before we hired him.
16:22 09 Oct 20
We love Engarde. What a delight to have color in our yard this year. Jeff is a pleasure to work with. Looking forward to the spring.
11:32 30 Sep 20
Since using the service of En Garde Deer Defense, we have not had any issues of the deer eating on our landscaping. I have noticed the deer actually taking a different path than they use to take prior to using the service. I highly recommend this service.
19:43 28 Sep 20
The product is making a difference. The deer avoid our yard. A very good value for the money. I highly recommend if you have deer destroying your landscaping. We are seeing a huge difference in our yard and deer avoid us.
14:11 11 Sep 20
Jeff is a great guy! I saw his recommendation on a neighborhood app and decided to call. I am very happy that I did. Seems to be working with the deer. All my plants are still intact, which is a good thing. The spray ingredients are all natural. I am very satisfied. Thanks
21:29 10 Sep 20
Have not had any deer problems since using this company.
22:56 09 Sep 20
I thought I was going to have to get new shrubs, but after one Application my shrubs look fantastic.
19:08 12 Aug 20
Jeff has been friendly and professional. He came twice to determine the best coverage for my property and the first application was free. We were able to settle on the best price for the proper coverage of my property. Since he started with applications I have seen no signs of deer damage. In fact this year I am seeing blooms on my plants that I have never seen before. I highly recommend En Garde Deer Defense for those with deer issues.
12:02 09 Aug 20
Jeff saved our plants! The deer are actually not eating them after he sprayed our yard. We now can enjoy our plants. Highly recommend his service.
16:37 01 Aug 20
So far, so good! En Garde really seems to be working, just hope it continues. We see day lilies that we have not seen in years as the deer would take off the tops of the lilies. Yes, there are some nibbles but that's okay. This will be an interesting season to see if we can actually grow flowers, tomatoes. Hope Jeff finds a solution for the chipmunks, woodchuck, etc.
21:15 27 Jul 20
I have tried other services and even sachet bags hanging every 2 feet in my gardens. Nothing worked until En Garde Deer Defense. The cost is very reasonable as an insurance policy to enjoy flowers, shrubs and landscaping throughout the seasons.Also, Jeff Ardo, the owner is conscientious and thorough. We are so thankful to have found Jeff and a solution that really works!
14:54 20 Jul 20
We have had excellent results with Jeff and En Garde Deer Defense. We began the service in June, 2019...discontinued it for the late fall and winter, and then restarted the service in early April of this year. The lack of deer damage has been wonderful...worth every penny we pay for this service. Jeff is always timely...he comes every 3 weeks.

Has kept the deer away from MOST plants! The deer in our yard are rampant and devour just about everything. En Garde has kept things under control. The deer still ate some...but not all day Lily’s Would highly recommend!
08:48 17 Jul 20
For many years I had a beautiful, largely daylily, garden the 65 feet along my driveway. Six or eight years ago the deer moved in and took over, eating everything in the garden. I put up six foot netting, a lot of work and expense every year. Often there would be holes in the netting and damage to the plants. Last year I put up the heavier, uglier, more expensive netting. Unfortunately, the deer jumped over it and ate everything. I mean the number of daylilies went from several thousand for the season to three. This year before I got the netting put up, deciding to give it one more try before tearing the garden out, the deer had chewed my plants from a few inches tall flat to the ground. Then I saw an ad for En Garde Deer Defense. It offered a free trial, so I figured I had nothing to lose. I was really nervous when I didn't put my netting up. Well, it's two months later, and my garden is gorgeous. Just drive past it - 409 Bradley in Bay Village. Deer Jeff, who has the service, is kind, friendly and very accommodating. He sprays the whole yard, anything the deer can reach, saving my hundred hostas and many other things. Last year I picked up 150 piles of deer defecation in my yard, this year one.
22:50 15 Jul 20
Jeff did a great job helping my 89-year-old mother deter the deer (including fawns born in her yard) from feasting on the flowers in her yard. The service worked; the deer left and haven’t returned after more than two weeks. Highly recommend this company. Great to work with. Understanding. Committed to helping homeowners safely and humanely rid their yards of deer.
22:53 07 Jul 20
I have just started with Jeff but now have hostas, lilies etc. I haven't had for years due to deer. Loving it!

Jeff is very professional and knows his business. Calls back promptly. I didn't believe his product would work, but after the free trial the deer were no longer eating my flowers. Worth it for sure!
13:07 28 Jun 20
Courteous...professional...and no deer! Homerun!
21:19 21 Jun 20
I have flowering landscaping this year. So glad for En Garde Deer Defense!
20:22 20 Jun 20
Things are growing in the yard that haven't had a chance in years past. Jeff does a great job treating everything to prevent deer from destroying the bushes and plants in my yard!
15:34 13 Jun 20
Deer destroyed my yard last year. Have used this service 3 times, with the first service being a free trial. So far so good! No deer damage, and the owner is very professional and easy to work with.
12:24 13 Jun 20
My yard and landscaping had become a haven for 6-8 deer in the area. Nothing would dissuade them from staying in my yard and eating my landscaping and wildflower garden. We tried every spray and other methods, but the deer continued to eat everything. When I first learned of En Garde, I was highly skeptical, but after trying everything else was out of options. The free trial application gave me a risk-free way of seeing for myself if this was real or not. WOW! The results were immediate and totally effective. We've been using En Garde for 4 months now, and our landscaping looks better than ever. My wife's wildflower garden is growing plants we haven't seen in years. My neighbors have seen the difference and have started with En Garde. The owner (Jeff) is very professional and accommodating to my yard's specific needs. He's been highly responsive to any questions or concerns I've had. If you're tired of fighting with deer to preserve your landscaping, this is your answer.
15:43 31 May 20
This service is AMAZING!! I am so happy to have found En Garde. I started using this service last fall, and this spring is the first year that my flowering trees and burning bushes haven't been touched by deer. I even have a hosta in my front bed which is growing which i thought would be impossible. I had previously tried every other deep repellents i could find at the garden center with no luck. I would recommend this service very very highly. I am so very pleased.
14:27 26 May 20
Its rare to find a business owner today who not only gives great service but is personable and extremely courteous. We so appreciate these qualities with En Garde Deer Defense
14:44 05 May 20
Our gardens were regularly decimated by deer. Last year we used En Garde and for the first time, we had beautiful hydrangeas and it even kept them away from our hostas!
18:57 26 Apr 20
Been a customer for 3 years now and this us a great product. For many years deer ate every flower I planted, but now with En Garde I have flowers blooming in all of the flower beds. I even have a few tulips which is a deer favorite. Thank you Jeff!
17:32 19 Apr 20
This company, and Jeff are simply amazing. You have to experience the effect of his spray, and then appreciate, that once again, you can have and enjoy your flowers and bushes. This is our second year after having a great experience the first time. The deer are around, but they leave our back yard alone. Amazing product.
13:22 15 Apr 20
We have been extremely pleased with En Garde Deer Defense. A year ago we had 10 deer up close to our house. That day Jeff applied our free application, since then the deer have stayed outside the spray perimeter and our plants have survived the winter. Jeff is very punctual in applying the treatments on a regular basis. We're grateful for the military and prepay discounts.

All I know is last year I had hostas in my front yard and my neighbor had stubs for leaves. My hostas, roses and daylilies are grateful!
17:57 28 Mar 20
Going for our 3rd year with En Garde. Over the past 2 years we have seen Hostas grow huge like they did years ago and discovered other plants and flowers we were sure were goners due to the deer. Expecting the same again this year!
16:50 23 Mar 20
Jeff from EnGarde Deer Defense has helped me maintain the blooms in my garden, without feeling guilty about hurting the deer! He reliable, pleasant and is getting us off to a good start for the second season. Thanks, Jeff
02:55 12 Mar 20
EnGarde really works. Jeff is truly a professional and the last deer we saw in our yard after having a herd visit at least two to three times daily, was a week after they sprayed last July. Would highly recommend.
14:12 04 Nov 19
I very seldom work with people like Jeff, who provides a service that saves my flowers AND is so responsible, and professional. Each time we’ve been in touch, he gets back to me very quickly. He also uses a non-toxic solution so I have no concerns about what’s being sprayed in my yard. A+
20:01 13 Oct 19
Jeff is very customer service oriented, timely, and professional. Also has a great product and is very knowledgable about his product.
02:18 22 Sep 19
Jeff truly believes in his product, and now I'm a believer too! We committed to the entire season, with a slight discount, and I've been impressed at how well the deer repellent works! The deer may take a small nibble, but promptly go away. Before I planted my annuals, Jeff stopped over and sprayed my plants, even before they were in the ground. His service works for the full three weeks as promised. He is currently servicing half of my yard as the other half is fenced. I may even take the fence down next year.....the product seems that good! Jeff is very friendly and personable, and he is readily available for questions. What sold me was his "free trial"! I was sold within days. I would recommend Jeff and En Garde Deer Defense without question.
20:02 16 Sep 19
I live in Lyndhurst where the deer population is out of this world! They eat EVERYTHING!! Since hiring En Garde Deer Defense, I have been able to plant whatever I want and they aren't eating it. I recommend this company.
17:36 07 Sep 19
15:02 17 Aug 19
Professional, prompt service and a product that really works... what more can we ask for from En Garde Deer Defense. My yard has been deer free this season. As an added bonus, online bill pay makes it super easy to pay the (very affordable) bill by credit card or bank draft.
17:51 05 Aug 19
We recently installed complete new landscaping to our new construction home, spending thousands on trees, shrubs and ornamental plantings. in the first few weeks, our landscaper had to replace 5 trees and hydrangeas due to deer destruction.He then gave us the details of En Garde Deer Defense, and were so glad to have spoken to Jeff!Since Jeffs first application, we've been impressed with the results and signed up for the seasonal program. After 8 weeks since the initial treatment, we've had ZERO damage from deer to any of our new plants! Our Crab trees, hydrangeas, etc are all in FULL BLOOM and new growth and no sign of damage, not even a nibble.I'm a huge advocate of this service!- My father-in-law has tried and tested many deer repellent programs over the decades, only to resort to pulling out his planted beds and resort to 'deer resistant' plants. Well, he's now keen on getting En Garde and rediscover his garden again.Great service, and Jeff is great to work with - very accommodating!
08:26 23 Jul 19
Doing business with Jeff is a pleasure. He is very knowledgeable in his field which makes his service very successful. Another important fact to me is that Jeff is a man of his word. He makes my joy of gardening possible again.
21:15 21 Jul 19
Jeff is amazing. ALWAYS calls back and is professional in every way
14:29 09 Jul 19
For the first time in 12 years of living in Broadview Heights, my plants are growing and healthy.
12:47 16 Jun 19

It Works are gardens and bushes look awesome this year
00:13 07 Jun 19
2019: I want to update my review after one year with En Garde Deer Defense. We are so very happy with the results! Our 5’ tall Weigela, which we had slated to remove due to minimal leaves and 2-3 flowers last year before spraying, burst into bloom and is full foliage again. I wish I could post a picture. It was gorgeous! Dianthus have sprung up on their own from previous years and are not eaten. It is exciting to see new plants coming up AND surviving! Jeff is so nice and knowledgeable to work with as well as responsive when you contact him. His free trial spray and environmentally friendly spray prompted us to try his product and the excellent results convinced us to sign up for the yearly spray. I really think you need to see it to believe it.2018: We are very happy with our early results. Jeff is great to work with and patient in answering all of our questions. Within two weeks of our first application we noticed coral bells, astilbe and other plants that we thought were forever gone from our yard surviving since the deer are not eating them. These plants have begun to grow again without damage. Additionally, our mature lilac bushes have undergrowth surviving, Our young lilac (which was wrapped in netting for the past 3 years and still getting eaten) is unwrapped and experiencing new growth. Our spirea, which has not grown more than 3” tall for the last 3 years are currently about 8” tall and still showing more new growth. It is a pleasure to sit on our patio and enjoy our plants again. It was extremely important to us that these results were obtained using environmentally safe, natural ingredients that are harmless to humans and pets. Thanks Jeff for introducing us to your wonderful product.
18:39 20 May 19
Had my free test application and since then, despite heavy rain, the deer have stayed outside the perimeter of the yard. So far, so good! Signing up for summer. Hoping to enjoy my hostas and daylilies this year, for a change, instead of raising deer candy.
04:03 19 May 19
I’ve tried everything and this is the only one that has really worked
01:43 19 May 19
This stuff really works. I am amazed that the deer are completely avoiding my yard! I can't rave enough about the treatment and the service Jeff has provided. I have vegetation growing in places for the first time in years!! Try it, you won't regret it.
20:05 12 May 19
The product is working as advertised. It has been keeping the deer away from my plants.
12:22 26 Mar 19
WOW! I am so very pleased with the service and results we have gotten from EN Garde Deer Defense. We use to have eight or more deer feasting in our yard at one time. (We believe that the neighbor has been feeding them.) I tried everything on my own, Irish Spring soap, coyote urine, two or three different commercial deer off sprays without success. We had to have unsightly wire fences up year round to protect the bushes and flowers were not possible. I have been using EN Garde Deer Defense for 4 months and have seen remarkable results. The deer still occasionally walk through the yard, but the fences are down and the bushes are growing. We are able to enjoy our yard. The deer did start to nibble once and we called. Jeff came out the next day and sprayed. That stopped the nibbling. I am very excited for next spring, I plan on planting flowers once again. I highly recommend EN Garde Deer Defense
13:37 25 Mar 19
Jeff is great to work with and a very conscientious service provider--he will even come do a re-spray at your request. His deer defense deterrent service has worked pretty well so far, eliminating most of the deer traffic into our yard. We're looking forward to good results in the Spring and Summer with hopes that our previous problem of nearly everything in our landscaping being eaten is a thing of the past.
18:00 17 Feb 19
Outstanding no deer in my yard!! It has been amazing that the deer have moved on to somewhere else . I am extremely pleased with this wonderful service!!!
16:38 03 Dec 18
17:42 13 Nov 18
The product works! Frist time in years we had flowering shrubs in our yard! Jeff is great, very responsive. Twice we noticed deer activity and he was back out within a day to respray . Recommended En Garde to our friends and they signed on as well and are very satisfied.
13:32 18 Sep 18
Product is wonderful... I would highly recommend it!
16:19 17 Sep 18
We used En Garde Deer Defense for the first time this spring/summer season. This really works!!! Rarely have I seen any deer in my yard and all our flowers, bushes etc. thrived. If they do show, they leave immediately.
02:05 12 Sep 18
Awesome product and service. Since we started using En Garde in the spring, we have had zero problems with deer. Prior to En Garde the deer ate everything in the yard and the herd bedded down in the yard at night. This product really works!!!!! Jeff does a great job of servicing the customer. Give him a try.
20:24 30 Jul 18
Jeff is great to work with, and the service is as advertised!
01:25 02 Jul 18
En Garde has been very good.
22:09 07 May 18
Excellent Service and Attentive. So far we have had good results!
03:13 29 Apr 18
Jeff does a great job and it is a great product. I have seen the deer literally walk around my property line like I have an electric fence installed. Looking forward to seeing "new life."
14:25 19 Dec 17
The owner, Jeff, is great to work with. His service and product are excellent, and a great value! He has helped keep a large reforestation project protected from browse, which was initially being very heavily browsed. I will most definitely continue to use them on future projects, and will recommend them to others as well.
13:25 10 Sep 17
Jeff is a true professional. He is very knowledgable about his products/service. Our yard looked great this year without the deer eating everything. I especially like En Garde Deer Defense because they don't use toxic ingredients in their spray! If you are tired of having your beautiful spring/summer plants eaten by deer, be sure to contact Jeff at En Garde Deer Defense. You will be glad that you did!
