Pet-Friendly Yard Plants

If you’re like most pet parents, your furry friend is more than an animal who lives in your home — they’re members of the family. That being the case, it’s no surprise that, when you start thinking about how you’re going to spruce up your yard, you take their health and safety into consideration. After all, your yard is one likely one of their favorite places to run and relax.

When you’re planning on adding some plants and foliage to your yard, here are some pet-friendly options to choose from.

Garden Marigolds

Not only are these pretty flowers pet-friendly, but they also can help other pests stay out of your yard. This is because their flowers attract bees to allow for better pollination, plus their roots ward off beetles and other bugs that could destroy your garden. Pretty, protective, and pet-friendly — talk about a triple threat!


While you’ve typically seen these in the form of large trees, they can also thrive as bushes in your yard. Their beautiful blooms will be a wonderful, pet-friendly addition to any sunny yard.

Rosemary and Dill

If you’re looking to plant some pet-friendly foliage that not only looks great but can also serve you in the kitchen, rosemary and dill are great options! They give off fragrant smells in your yard and are also great ways to fill empty spaces in your landscape. 

Pro Tip: Dill can grow to be a pretty big plant, so give it plenty of room in your yard to thrive.
