Stop a Dog from Digging

If you have a dog who is a digger, creating a designated "digging box" can help. You can build one from dirt or stone to match your garden - or use a kid's wading pool or sandbox for a bit of colour! Teach your dog to dig in this area by hiding treats and toys in the dirt.

Bamboo makes a gorgeous and lush addition to any pet friendly garden - but be cautious! This plant is an aggressive spreader and will pop up all over your yard. We love it planted in containers for big impact and low maintenance.

Hanging baskets are a great way to grow strawberries in a dog friendly garden. It keeps the fruit up off the ground and protects it from fruit thieving puggles (or dogs who might use it as a potty spot).

This mix of succulent sedum and fragrant lavendar makes an interesting dog, friendly mixed planter (unless you think lavender smells like your grandma, like I do!)

Bee balm is so easy to grow and it can help attract butterflies, hummingbirds and beneficial bees to your dog friendly garden.
