The type of solution that will have to be used for solving the problem will largely depend on the activity of Florida armadillo in the property, and whether they are just visiting the yard or garden for food, or made hole in the ground within the limits of the yard. For armadillos that come to the area, so they can find food or dig worms and insects or rummaging through garbage, building a fence is often a permanent solution. For those who have made a hole in the ground in the garden, the best approach is usually to catch the animal in a trap and remove it from the area.
