DOGSCAPE YOUR YARD | Simply Buckhead

Melodie McDanal, a horticulturist at Pike Nurseries, which has a Buckhead location, says that the first thing to do when designing a backyard for your pet is identify the things your dog likes.
"Some toxic plants include foxglove, yews, oleander, lantana and azalea," McDanal says. She adds that, just like people, blooming plants can trigger seasonal allergies in animals. For grass, McDanal suggests using Bermuda or zoysia that will survive better than fescue. TIP 4: ADD FUN FOR FIDO So many options can add fun and give your dogs their own domain. McDanal suggests adding a dog run along a narrow area of the backyard by creating a border with shrubs or fencing. Fountains are a great source of fresh drinking water for dogs. If you have a pet who loves to dig, add a digging pit that's hidden behind shrubs or a fence. Have big ideas but not sure what the process is? A professionally designed dogscape can take six months for the design process. If you want to tackle it yourself, don't get overwhelmed. McDanal suggests starting with one project at a time, such as a dog run or a section of the yard, and upon completion, moving on to the next.
