Turn your backyard into an allergy-free garden.

Plant a garden that surrounds your home with trees and plants that minimize your exposure to pollen. Some of the low-pollen types include hibiscus, roses, apple trees, dogwoods, cherry trees, boxwoods, pears, zinnias, tulips, lilacs, pansies and geraniums.
