Pet-friendly gardening

Simple steps can keep the lawn and garden looking great without posing a danger to pets. Carrots, leafy greens, blueberries and blackberries are all dog-friendly for those inclined to grow fruits and vegetables. Amaryllis, lilies, rhododendron, chrysanthemum and dieffenbachia are highly toxic to companion animals and should be left out of landscaping. It’s important to ensure pets can’t access compost or hazardous materials, and owners can make the yard less hospitable to fleas, ticks and other pests by keeping grass tidy and eliminating standing water.
