When a home owner gets ready to landscape the yard, two of the first things that come to mind are protecting your children and protecting your pets. If you’re like most homeowners, landscaping your yard can seem like a lost cause when you have a dog or two. So, we’ve compiled a few great ideas for you to get the visually pleasing backyard you deserve that’s designed to keep your pets safe and not add a financial burden to your wallet.

Pet-Friendly Landscaping Tips

  • Using rocks, stone, and boulders to add depth and design to your yard. There are so many styles and colors of rock that can be used creatively.  Very appealing visually and you don’t have to worry about the pup digging up expensive sod.
  • Artificial grass. This is a great alternative if you love the look of a green lawn but don’t want to worry about the pups while you aren’t looking. Artificial laws are water-resistant and super durable so they’re able to withstand years of four legged and two legged use.
  • Dog fence.                  The simplest way to protect your landscaping is to keep your pets out of areas. This can be done pretty easily by installing a pet fence to keep pets in one section of the yard. This makes it possible for you to have the vegetable garden you’ve always wanted without fear of your dog demolishing the zucchini.
