Cat- Friendly Garden

Creating a cat-friendly garden can be easy and fun, if you have outdoor cats. You can create plenty of structures for climbing and plants that are safe for them to nibble on. They also have multiple dirt-filled areas in which to “relieve” themselves. Of course, this type of setup may not be for everyone, so here are some other cat-friendly garden ideas.

First and foremost, cats are naturally curious with a need for exploration. Choosing a location in the backyard just for them can help keep your furry friends appeased. They love to climb, hide, and pounce. With this in mind you will want to include climbing structures like cat posts, fencing, and trees.

Create designated play areas for younger felines and don’t forget to include mounds of dirt, mulch, or sand for them as well. Cats typically go potty in the same place, so this can help deter them from going into your prized garden spaces Choosing plants for your cat’s garden space must be done with care. Hardy, but safe, plants are obviously an important consideration. Since cats enjoy chasing things, those that attract butterflies may be a good choice. In fact, attracting insects in the cat garden is a good thing in that you want to avoid using any toxic pesticides that could be harmful.

Cat-Friendly Plants for the Garden A number of plants may not be suitable for your feline and may even is poisonous, so choose your plants carefully.

Here are some plants you can add to create safe gardens for cats: Herbs, flowers and foliage plants Catnip (Nepeta cataria)- probably one of the more obvious choices for a cat garden, this plant is found to be highly attractive to cats, even inducing a sense of euphoria when around the plant.

Cat grass– cat grass is normally a variety of several grasses that cats may nibble on, but oat grass (Avena sativa) or wheatgrass (Triticum aestivum) are the two most popular.

Asters– these plants require little maintenance and are just right for adding dense cover for a cat’s hunting expeditions.

 Blue mist shrub (Caryopteris)- this flowering shrub is highly attractive to pollinators and provides plenty of privacy and shelter for cats.

 Sunflowers– nothing is more charming in the garden, or easier to grow, than sunflowers. These large plants will provide plenty of cover while the blooms offer something to play with when added near climbing structures.

Cosmos– yet another fun plant for cats, this one offers wispy growth, wonderful color, and great screening, which your cats will appreciate.

Cats are wonderful. Plants are wonderful. Let’s all enjoy them together and make this a purr-fect world.
