The story of the our deer resistant vegetable garden continues to be the most popular blog post I have ever written, and the photographs have been re-pinned on Pinterest over 34,200 times in five years! If you would like to build something similar you can now purchase our plans. (And no you DON'T need to have the fence be 8-10' tall – read the blog post to understand why) These are suitable for experienced woodworkers – not for beginners.

What is included;

Plan view: A scaled computer drawn plan with dimensions (PDF)

Elevations: A scaled computer drawn east/west elevation of the garden and pergola with dimensions plus a north/south elevation for the pergola (PDF)

Design notes that include photographs, information on the materials we used, tips on design considerations and additional resources (PDF)

All three documents will be available to download upon payment.


What is not included:

A cutting list

An itemized shopping list

A detailed construction drawing for the pergola (although there are two elevation drawings and a plan view plus  several close up photographs)

A step-by-step construction manual

Recommendations for depth of footings



Just $12 (+ tax if applicable)

Fun Fact:

John S, a customer from Queensland, Australia is adapting these plans to keep out Eastern Grey Kangaroos, Wallabies,  Potaroos, and the occasional Hare on the ground. To combat Cockatoos and King Parrots from the air "it may require some modifications"!!


Option 1: checkout from this website

How the checkout works

Just follow the prompts and complete your checkout using the secure PayPal server

After your payment has processed (usually just a few minutes) you will receive your purchase receipt by email that will include your downloadable links.

Your downloadable links will also appear within a few minutes on a purchase confirmation on this website in a new pop up window! Initially you will see a window that tells you your transaction is pending. This will change to 'transaction complete' very quickly and your downloadable files will be visible. You may need to refresh your page for the links to appear.

You  have 48 hours to download the files.

Each file may only be downloaded once so save them to a safe place.

I therefore recommend you do the downloads from your main computer rather than opening the files on a mobile device.

Option 2: checkout from my online learning website:

This is a bit easier and you aren't limited to the number of downloads or time, although you will need to create an account on the website in order to make the purchase. Just follow this link:
