The Q&A Archives: Plants for Dog Yard

Question: I am looking for suggestions for healthy plantings for a fenced-in dog yard.

Answer: There are no plants that I know of that withstand repeated "marking" or trampling, so containers or tall, densely planted raised beds are necessary. Then you can grow most anything that is suited to your hardiness zone, light exposure and soil type. The perimeter fence can double as a trellis for vining plants, too! If you need more specific info, please submit a second question, providing more details about the site (soil, light, desired plants, etc.). Good luck!
