    Some people use them to keep pond weeds under control.

    We have a few geese on our pond and they traverse through our garden on a regular basis, they have never messed with any part of my garden. Could it be that rabbits, or some other wild critter, is getting your garden and you do not realize it? Geese like to stick to their grass for the most part.

    But alas, geese are not for everyone. If they are domestic geese, sell or give them away. If you were near me, I would come get them! If they are wild geese than there is nothing you can do about them.

    Depending on the size of your garden, you may want to consider fencing in your garden. It does not need to be a tall or particularly tall fence. A 2-3' chicken wire or plastic mesh fence would be enough to keep any unwanted domestic waterfowl out of the goods. You may have to worry about wild waterfowl going over the fence, but usually they won't as long as they have other grazing available.

    If you happen to be in NC or SC, send me a PM and we'll see if we can work something out. [​IMG]
