I don't have a deer problem butI have several rose glow barberries in front of a Nellie Stevens holly. I've found this to be a good combination. I imagine the sharper needled varieties might do it???

I like the narrow blue upright juniper. The contrast in form and color is quite striking. I dont have the tag right in from of me, but will look it up if you want.
