I want to build a butterfly garden in my front yard, but my husband thinks our dogs will dig it up. Prevention
I would love to have a butterfly garden in my front yard, but we have two dogs (3 months & 11 months). My husband thinks it will be a waste of money because he said the dogs will probably dig everything up, or just go plop down in the middle of the plants to cool off in the potting soil & pebbles. I don’t want to “not” have a nice yard just because I have dogs, so is there a way to prevent dogs from messing with a garden? Maybe a spray or something you can buy?
My grandmother told me if the dogs do not see you digging & planting the plants that they will not mess with them, but if they do see you planting the garden, they will run right to it & start digging or trying to eat the plants. Is this true? Because if it’s that easy, I can easily make the dogs stay inside while we plant it lol But that seems a little strange to me, that would actually keep them from digging i up.
Anyways, any tips so I can have my garden are appreciated! :-)
