Keeping dogs out of flower beds can be a challenge! They love the cool, soft dirt as a place to dig and lay, especially on a hot summer day. You can fence them out with wire mesh fencing or with a small electric fence (some hardware stores sell such products for keeping pets out of an area). Another technique is to lay mesh wiring such as chicken wire or hardware cloth wire on the surface of the ground to prevent digging.
