Lehnhoff’s Landscaping:: A Dog Friendly Garden

It is possible to have both a beautiful garden and a happy dog. Just make sure your landscaping matches your pet’s habits. If you are going to bring a dog into the family, make sure you have a flexible plan with your lawn. By having a flexible plan and being aware of common problems dogs can bring to your lawn, it’s possible that both your pet and landscape can live in harmony without your pet destroying your yard.

Do you have a female dog? If so, you may have noticed some brown spots on your lawn. Female dogs have a large concentration of nitrogen and salt in their urine, and that’s what causes brown spots on your lawn. The best way to remove the brown spots is to flush them out with a  with a garden hose.

If you want to minimize this task, then try to train your dog to do their business in a secluded area.

Animals sometimes trample on your plants as the result of rambunctious behavior. If you have a boisterous dog, make sure you have hardy native species growing well in your lawn so they can thrive in this area. Also, if you notice where your dog likes to run then remove more fragile plants into a different yard.

If you have soft landscaping that tends to get muddy and dirty, your pet will inevitably track it inside. Best way to prevent this is to restrict your dog’s access to muddier areas. Try constructing a landscaping barrier? If you need help with that, you can come to us.

Hardscaping is highly effective since rocks and mulch replace grass and soul.

Maintaining your garden while having a dog is a challenge but a doable one. By properly training your dog and following these tips, your landscape will be impeccable.
