Listen to the dog!
Where do they run, lay, dig?
Have drawn dozens of gardens with a running path at the fence, shrubs/groundcovers/trees placed where the dog lets me place them.
Only 1 dog exasperated me, & her owner, I created 'cross' paths where the sweet hellion ran. That garden is on the cover of 1 of my books. Proof, the biggest challenges make the best gardens.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
