Agility garden?

I love the idea of adapting your garden to your dogs, rather than constantly struggling to keep your dog out of the garden. So how about incorporating agility training into your planting plan? Dog Park Wisdom photographer Bev Sparks suggested growing corn as weave poles in the backyard. Robin Haglund, owner of Garden Mentors in Seattle, thinks mammoth sunflowers might be a sturdier–and probably prettier–option. “They tend to have really strong stalks when they get going — so strong that I have to let them rot over the winter in order to get them out of the ground,” she says. She also suggests using inexpensive bamboo pools planted with climbing beans. (The photo is of Robin’s dog Shiloh, who has inspired many landscaping workarounds.)
