5. PAW-FRIENDLY LANDSCAPING ELEMENTS
Incorporate pet-friendly features into your outdoor space, such as designated recreation spots. Purchase plants and decorations that are safe for pets, creating a pleasant environment. Establish a comfortable area for your furry friends to rest and play, improving their overall experience.
6. SEASONAL MAINTENANCE TIPS
Adjust your care routine depending on changing weather conditions throughout the year. Prepare for intense rain or wintry conditions by ensuring proper drainage to avoid matting. Protect the turf during harsh temperatures, taking measures to maintain your turf’s longevity. Read our wintertime guide for more advice. Yearly professional maintenance is also recommended.
7. ENSURING SAFETY FOR PETS
Regularly check for pointy items or debris that could harm your pets during their play. Confirm the absence of toxic substances in fertilizers or pesticides that could be used in the area. High-quality turf virtually guarantees a secure environment for your pets to thrive, but it’s still smart to be sure nothing dangerous ends up in your yard.
