I am not a great gardener (still learning), so I find tips and ideas on other sites.  I will share these tips and links with you.

I can't wait for the spring and summer to to hear the birds singing, see the flowers blooming.  Did I mention that I am not a good gardener?  But, I still love flowers, and one of these days poor things will learn to survive in my garden too ;)

We have two dogs, a Lhasa Apso and a German Shepherd.  They love the backyard as much as we do.  My Lhasa is the older one and should not be judged by her size.  She's in control and my BIG puppy respects that.  My German Shepherd is a big suck, sometimes he thinks that he is a lapdog.....uhmmm.....dream on puppy.
