Saving your flower beds
No matter how much you love your dog, you don’t want him or her rooting around in your flower gardens. The digging can destroy your beautiful blooms, plus create a big mess. But you can prevent dogs from rooting around in your flower beds by employing one of the following five methods.
Fence them in
Install flower bed fencing in order to prevent dogs from entering your garden. Or, create a temporary barrier out of chicken wire. Drive a few stakes into the ground around your flower beds, then wrap the chicken wire around the stakes. When you don’t want the wire visible, roll it up and remove it.
Create a play zone
Dogs often dig due to boredom. To prevent your pet from heading to your flower beds for some fun, create a play zone all their own. Dig out a shallow area in your yard, then fill it with sand and some dog toys. This dog-friendly landscaped play area should be much more enticing than your flower beds.
