(From the Austin American-Statesman, 10/30/10)

I need an evergreen privacy screen. I live in southern Travis County and have a 450-foot property line that has a view to about 10 to 12 neighbors' backyards. I need something that won't be nibbled by the deer that come through most nights, and drought tolerant or minimal watering would be perfect. Last year I planted a couple dozen Leyland cypress trees, and only one survived last summer's drought, followed by the cold winter.

What to plant? Learn More...

Great article. I found a more extensive list of plants that have been shown to survive the deer browsing posted at the link below.
