What can I do about woodchucks eating my plants?

What can I use to keep woodchucks from eating my potato vine, marigolds, coleus, ivy?

Hi, There's no easy answer here because woodchucks are very hard to keep at bay. A chicken wire fence is your best line of defense, making sure it goes at least 12 inches underground and stands at least 2 feet high. You can also try spray repellents (sold at most garden centers and home stores), but they are really designed to save a particular plant, not a whole garden.  Or, you can try live trapping the animals and removing them from the property. There's no easy answer, but you could try all three together.
