Tips to make your yard and lawn pet-friendly

Our pets appreciate our yards just as much, or more, than we do. Some pets spend most of their life in the back yard. If that’s the case for your pets you may have already solved some of issues we’re going to look. You may also have to take into consideration what plants your pets do and don’t get along with. Sturdy plants with soft foliage are recommended for areas near your garden.

As far as the lawn goes, natural turf grass is one of the best surfaces around because it can handle the ‘ruff’ nature of some of your animals. Backyard lawns provide a place for our pets to play, eat, and do their business. A well-kept lawn is usually safe for pets and children to play on. It will self-repair from any damage or tracking and with a bit of care with some nutrients and aeration every now-and-then your lawn should serve you and your pet friends well. Where choosing your type of lawn is concerned we can provide you with the appropriate type for your area, climatic conditions and individual requirements.
