      • Barberry shrubs perfect for NYC homeowners.... maintenance free, decorative and pet deterrents
      • June 08, 2015
      • Recommended Product

      Wife and I are average NYC homeowners who require inexpensive decorative shrubs which will not only accentuate the limited front lawn but more importantly deter dogs from leaving their droppings from inconsiderate pet owners. These barberrys grow no larger than 30 inches high with a 30-inch spread. The inconspicuous painful thorns ward off dogs from voiding both their bodily fluids and daily droppings which sadly appear more and more often unlike 20 years ago when pet owners curbed their dogs responsibly. I have a total of a dozen of the these Home Depot barberrys and amazingly I have never ever had to return any for warranty replacement. Unlike boxwood which all homeowners favor for fences I favor barberrys simply because they require even less maintenance other than a annual haircut to sculpt them so they appear tidy along the walkway (pictures enclosed). Talk about inexpensive, I paid less than $8 for each shrub at my local Home Depot and in less than a year they are all over 2 feet high making it a painful deterrent for dogs who dare to walk anywhere other than the sidewalk. I never ever water them unless there exists dog droppings on the sidewalk in which case the hose washes the droppings into the street along together with the spritz of water to the shrubs since I already have the garden hose out. For homeowners who have pet issues like myself you should seriously consider Home Depot barberrys for the front of the house .... beautiful looking purple foliage, inexpensive (cheapest prices at Home Depot with a 1-yr no quibble return policy from Home Depot), and a humane dog deterrent when irresponsible pet owners just don't care.

      Pros Durable, Vibrant Color, Easy to Install, Great Quality, inexpensive, excellent pet deterrents
