Dogs and gardens don’t often mix. In fact, one can seriously do harm to the other if you do not take certain precautions. The key to creating a dog friendly garden is to ensure it is resistant to canine activity such as digging and running. On the other hand, it is also important that you have a garden that is free of chemicals and poisonous plants that may harm your dog. Here are a few tips to make sure that you can create the best environment for your pet and plants:
Dogs are less likely to trample on your garden if they are able to walk or run on a clearly marked path. For playful dogs, the paths should be reinforced with brick or stone.
Larger plants tend to earn more respect than smaller ones in the eyes of dogs. In fact, a host of large plants will look like a jungle to a dog. Combined with a clear path, your dog is sure to be kept at bay in your garden.
It is possible to have a lovely garden and a happy dog – just make sure you have the right plants, a solid path and no chemicals. If you would like any more advice on gardening or have questions, be sure to reach out to our expert team today. We would love to help you have the perfect garden.
