Updated: Jul 14, 2020
Having an outdoor space perfect for your pups to play in is a dog-owners dream! But achieving the perfect outdoor space takes much time, thought, and effort. Here are 3 things you should consider when creating the perfect outdoor dog-friendly landscape design:
1. Safety First
Dogs love to wander around the yard, so it’s important to first consider the safety of your pet. Do you have a proper fenced-in yard? Are you using the right materials on pathways that will keep cool for your furry-friends?
Each space will have its own variety of needs and safety precautions to implement, but safety should always be your number one priority! Let’s keep our pups safe… and happy!
2. Animal-Friendly Plants
A variety of plants, landscaping materials, and chemicals can cause many problems for your pups. Do you research before you plant anything or use certain materials?
Sure, some plants might be beautiful, but many can cause harm to your furry friends. Be sure to double-check all the materials you’re using!
3. Make Water Accessible
Many people don’t consider the accessibility of water for their pets in their outdoor spaces.
Having fresh water available to your pets allows you the ability to get a little creative with space! Why not add a fountain that your dog can access, but is also aesthetically pleasing to you? It’s a win-win for everyone!
Hopefully, these 3 tips can get you started on the ultimate dog-friendly landscape design!
