This Santa Clara couple did an Express Garden to come up with a plant pallet that would encourage hummingbirds while also being a safe haven for their two new dogs. Since puppies are known for nibbling, the plants selected were not only durable but also non-toxic. The theme is causal, low maintenance and relaxing.

The homeowner’s favorite pastime is to sit under under the arbor with his laptop on a sunny day and hang out with the dogs.
