Save on water. Don’t wash your face in the morning, because as you’re planting petunias, your dog will wash it for you.
Dogs provide ample fertilizer. After scooping, use it to grow an abundant harvest of prized flowers such as dandelion and crown vetch in the back of your property.
Cracked pots are good. When your dog drops you ceramic containers on your hard patio bricks, remember the cracks allow for absorption of more water.
With dogs, there’s never a shortage of ornamentation in your botanical displays. Gnawed sticks, broken pottery, and split tennis balls provide interest in the garden.
Remember to install large sized shrubs, which provide much needed privacy when your dog demands such.
When planting in the garden a dog also shares, wear gloves…really, thick, plastic lined, almost galvanized steel gloves that are disposable.
Suggested flora: Kudzu, bamboo, English ivy, and privet. You will never be annoyed with your dog when you find them pulled up by the roots on the back door welcome mat.
