Michael Stumpf has discovered many creative ways to embrace dogs in the garden. 

"I'm from New Berlin, Wisconsin. My challenge is not soils or pests or water, but four dogs of my own and a continuous stream of fosters. How to meet that threat? Flagstone paths, strategically placed fences, dense plants, dog-safe plants, and large swaths of native grasses and meadows."

Have a garden you'd like to share? Email 5-10 high-resolution photos (there is no need to reduce photo sizing before sending--simply point, shoot and send the photos our way) and a brief story about your garden to GPOD@taunton.com. Please include where you are located!

Sending photos in separate emails to the GPOD email box is just fine.
