Interesting and informative thread ....appreciate Steve's information.

My lab had his teeth cleaned last year .....age 10.......but he was distressed by it.  Overnight he coughed, constantly dribbled and looked uncomfortable.  Took him to vet again and it seems a "block" of some sort was put Imto his mouth to keep it open and this caused the problem.  Fine next day though 

Pretty but tough plants to secure boundary

With postmen, you need to confront and explain to every one of them on your round.

I had a couple of issues that are now resolved .....however, it took a few reminders.

Most berberis are not too aggressive as boundaries  but a couple of vsrieties are a little too vicious.  

On a local public garden walkway a couple of extremely vicious yuccas have been planted.  Currently they are 4' or so high with erect and near horizontal needle point stems ......very dangerous and a serious situation destined to happen. The gardener said " they look good there". 

So, trespasser-deterring plants need to be consent with care

Fairygirl, you pinched my suggestion.  Berberis Darwinii would be my choice 

Daek evergreen indestructible foliage, orange flowers in spring and those blue berries.   Doesn't have to be a hedge ....a couple at strategic points.

May I also say I wish you and your dad good news 

Got new phone today.  Expected fun n games but transferring stuff and activating new phone went quite smoothly.  However, an even lesser,camera on this phone so a new camera is now a priority.  ....if only to post pics on the  forum,to do plants  any justice 

Been wet, wet , wet today.    But summer is on its way back over,the weekend folks
