Gus is 60 lbs of muscle which can wreck havoc on the new Spring growth and delicate leaves.
In an effort to guide him away from the perennial beds I use 2 foot tall temporary fencing. I place it along most beds but leave him areas as straight runs such as along the azaleas.
They are dark green so they blend in with the landscape once things leaf out and also provide support for those floppy day lilies.
If I didn’t do this simple step I would find this!
