Petscaping: Training and Landscaping with Your Pet in Mind (by Scott Cohen and Carolyn Doherty)

"PetscapingT is landscape design with pets in mind", says author Scott Cohen, HGTV's favorite Garden Artisan from The Green Scene Landscape. "We like to incorporate petscapingT into all our landscaping projects that involve families with pets", Cohen says. "And while we've created pet yards for people with turtles and rabbits, most of the time, petscapingT is for the dogs. Dog friendly gardens are very much in demand."
