Dog proof ground covers 

Hi, would like to know if there are any ground covers for a shady, bare spot in our garden that will withstand a dog running over it.

Answered Monday 6 April 2009

In the shady spots of my garden i have Ajuga reptans, it has a purple leaf and spikes of small blue flowers. It regularly gets trampled and slept on by my dog and cat so should do the job. It is important to keep the dog off the plant until its completely settled in to give it a fighting chance against the dogs wear and tear.
