Dog-Friendly Landscaping for Your Garden

It can be difficult to keep your garden beautiful whilst creating a fun environment for dogs. It’s important to make adjustments to suit both your dog and lifestyle, in this blog we will show you how to do just that without sacrificing your beautiful garden with dog-friendly landscaping!

Use aggregates to avoid grass damage

Dogs can cause grass to turn yellow, avoid this by using aggregates to hardscape areas your dog frequents. If you’re not a big fan of garden maintenance either, this is an easy solution for you! Hardscaped gardens require little to no maintenance and save you money since you won’t have to invest in garden maintenance tools. Aggregates are especially useful for dog owners because you can avoid muddy paws and digging, so no more eyesore holes dotted around your perfect garden!

Artificial grass

Similarly to aggregates, artificial grass stops fading and yellow spots, digging and most importantly, muddy paws. Artificial grass is often less toxic than chemically treated natural grass so if your dog has a tendency to try chewing new things, they will be safe. It’s also easy to clean up after your dog and can be wiped clean with ease!

Install a Sandbox

Does your dog have an insatiable need to dig despite your best efforts to stop them? It might be time for a sandbox. Give your dog their own designated digging area and let them have all the fun they want! We carry our very own sand and a wide range of timber so you can make your dog’s play area customised to your garden, meaning you don’t have to compromise your garden’s looks.

Border your flowers off

If your dogs can’t get enough of digging up your fresh soil or eating your fresh vegetables it might be time to add a border to keep them out. Garden borders can vary by size and desired look from log rolls to sleepers it all depends on your dog’s temper and, more importantly, the aesthetics of your garden. A garden border not only helps to keep animals away from your plant life, but it also makes it look much neater and can help to organise!
