If your dog eats any of the lovely springtime flowers and plants, it could suffer severe consequences. With a little extra preparation, you can create a garden that you and your dog can both enjoy.

Here are four dog-friendly gardening ideas:

  1. Plants with poison. Many ordinary plants and flowers are harmful to dogs and even deadly in some cases. The dangerous component may be found in the flower, fruit, roots, or leaves. Before planting anything, do a little research to find out what can be harmful to your dog. Calla lilies, sago palms, azaleas, and rhododendrons are a few of the plants to stay away from.
  2. Sting in the side. Roses are lovely flowers, but the thorns can cause your dog considerable harm. Keep thorny plants out of your garden or make an effort to prevent your dog from accessing them.
  3. Do not feed dogs plant food. Although fertilizer may maintain the health of your grass and plants, it might be hazardous to your dog. If your dog consumes a lot of fertilizer, their digestive system may become seriously irritated. When using fertilizer, make sure to properly follow the directions and wait for the necessary period of time after application before allowing your dog to go around.
  4. Risky chemicals.  Your dog may experience severe issues as a result of pesticides in your garden. Particularly hazardous for your canine companion are fly and snail baits that contain methomyl. Adhere to the usage directions and store insecticides in locations where your dog can’t reach them.
