A while ago, I started creating a “dog proof garden”. I thought it was time to share some more “before” and “after” pictures. My problem was turning the “Wynberg Dog Habitat” from a desolate waste of mud and dog bones into a garden. Things were going well a couple of months ago, when I took these pictures – plants were growing behind their fences, but most of the garden was series of muddy ditches, as the grass refused to grow under the constant doggy traffic:
I found a very cheap source of paving slabs, and set to work, closely supervised by the dogs:
A couple of months later, the view from my bedroom window. (The dogs look dislocated because this is a composite picture.)
And the plants have continued flourishing.
The wonderful thing about gardening, is how small things make you happy. Like grass growing between paving stones:
Pippin is still deciding what he thinks of all these fences:
But he has found that he can pee through them quite easily – below is what used to be a rose-bush that has succumbed non stop chemical (or is it biological?) warfare.
