How to Achieve a Dog Friendly Garden

ADAuthor - Artificial Grass Direct

2 min read

Dogs are one of the most popular pets to own in the UK and many gardeners are also avid pet lovers!

One of the most common problems for pet owners is the way dogs can destroy a lush green lawn in a matter of seconds!

Take a look at some of our top tips for creating (and keeping!) a dog friendly garden…

1. Fencing

Secure fencing is one of the most important elements of a dog friendly garden, especially if your four-legged friend is particularly prone to escape attempts! Keep your dog safe by erecting tall fencing to give you peace of mind they won’t end up in a neighbour’s garden or roaming the streets.

2. Shaded areas

Dogs can get hot really quickly so make sure there are a few shady areas around your garden where they can lie and cool down.

3. Make surfaces dog friendly

Many common garden surfaces can be unsuitable for dogs. Areas of paving and decking can often become slippery and dangerous for pets, especially in wet weather. Problems can also occur with natural turf which can quickly deteriorate with regular use. One of the most preventative measures you can take in your garden is to install artificial grass. Pet owners often find AGD is a great choice for their garden as even the most boisterous dogs won’t damage turf, whilst remaining completely safe for all types of pets.

 4. Sturdy borders

Dogs are prone to charging into the garden, destroying flowerbeds and if you’re growing flowers or veg that you want to protect, it’s advisable to install sturdy borders to protect your beds.

5. Pet friendly planting

Most dogs will avoid grazing on plants, but some do, especially puppies. Learn what kinds of plants are in your garden and which ones could be poisonous to pets. You can than quickly remove anything that could be potentially harmful to your dog.
