With a pond in our back yard, we expect the geese to show up. When their numbers increase to 30, it begins to get messy in the garden. I enjoy watching them chew on fallen apples or doze in the shade, but do they have to sleep in my Sedum Everlasting bed? My crop of crispy succulents are crushed into total flatness by big goose bodies… Sigh. A love of wildlife comes with consequences.
