Birds & Blooms

How do I make my backyard both dog- and bird-friendly?


Kenn and Kimberly: The good news is that making a yard safe for dogs also makes it safer for you, your family and the birds. The most important thing gardeners can do is avoid treating their lawns with chemicals. Recent studies indicate a correlatio­n between lawn chemicals and cancer in canines. These chemicals can also harm insects and the birds that feed on them. Embrace the idea of a less treated lawn to benefit all living creatures.
