    DefaultToxic plants?

    Im going to be changing my back yard from concrete to grass in a few weeks and will be added some brush, trees, etc to make it look nice and cozy. Instead of me going into Home Depot and just picking out stuff that looks pretty, does anyone know the plants I need to keep away from? Dale isnt a plant eater but I dont want something back there thats dangerous to them....given that its really their yard.

    Thanks!

    Remi and Rusty aren't my whole life. They're trying to fill the hole in my heart left by Cappy's passing.

    Yes! Ovewhelming, isn't it?

    I was in the opposite position when we got Angus...I had a landscaped back yard, researched what was dangerous, and ended up removing most of it. :

    See if you can find a list on ucdavis.edu. Seems like I remember they had a good one as well.

    I don't know what zone you're in, but here is what I deemed OK (after painstaking research) to stay in our backyard:

    Crepe myrtle
    Oregon grape
    Rose of Sharon
    Leyland Cypress


    Connie and "The Boys":
    Angus, Yellow Lab, CGC, RE, CD
    Simon, d.b.a. Flat Coated Retriever, CGC, RE, CD

    Gone ahead, but forever in my heart:
    Crash, Pit Bull x Rottweiler x Golden Retriever

    I was going to say...............maybe a better question is, what IS ok LOL

    I mean, Im only going to do a few flower beds...marigolds, pansies, stuff like that.

    Maybe I should just print that out and bring it to home depot.
