People who are looking for a simple and quick way to remove unwanted weeds from their yard have found one in the shape of a nail.
Nail plants can be found throughout the world, but they are usually not common in Australia, where most of Australia’s weed plants are native.
But one family from the Northern Territory decided to take a different tack, planting an impressive 10 nail plants throughout the bin.
The family from Abbotville, in the Northern Territories, have planted the nail plants in their yard to give their dog a home.
“It’s a really neat idea,” the owner, Kristy O’Donnell, told ABC News.
“They were growing the plants to give the dog something to look at.”
The dog is getting all sorts of fun stuff and the plants are being used to cover the holes that we’ve cut in the fence to give it a place to crawl in.
“The nail plants are in the form of a plant, but are actually a flower and an edible herb, which Kristy said was an inspiration for her family.”
We wanted to make sure that we had something to feed the dog and it’s something that she could appreciate,” she said.”
I’ve been doing this for about three years and I think that it’s made a huge difference to the dog.
“Nail plant plants have been planted in Australia’s dog yard to encourage dogs to dig into the soil.
The first nail plant was planted in a backyard shed last week, and the family has now planted four more, with one being in their front yard.”
When we first started, it was very, very difficult for the dog to see,” Kristy told ABC.”
There were a lot of plants in there and he couldn’t see where he was going.
“But now, it’s done in a matter of minutes.
It’s pretty impressive.”
A few months ago, Kristie’s daughter brought home a few more nail plants from her grandparents, and now the family is hoping the plant will be around for years to come.
“This is the perfect solution for us, because now the dog can come and sit on the plant and enjoy the plants,” Kristie said.
