Landscaping Ideas for Dogs

Landscaping Ideas for Dogs

Here we go with a landscaping ideas for Dogs video. With so many of us being Dog-Lovers and Paradise Restored being Outdoor Living- Lovers it makes sense to provide a Dog-Friendly-Backyard-Space Video to show off solutions to dogscape your landscape.

We all love being outdoors, and the family dog wants to be a part of the action. After all our dogs are part of the family and we want to enjoy the seasons with pets included. This may seem like a compromise of aesthetics, however, you might be pleasantly surprised at how some of these solutions provide convenience with just the right look.

By seeing some landscaping ideas for dogs, you’ll be able to visualize and prepare the space that fits your families’ lifestyle best – all while accommodating your pets needs. We’ve all seen homeowner choices to let their dogs have free run of the back yard. However, this can lead to the challenge of messy, muddy lawns with holes dug in flower beds and entrenched doggie pathways. We hope to offer a few dog-friendly landscaping ideas as a compromise.

Installing Hardscape in portions of the yard offers low-maintenance for years while minimizing wear and tear on lawns and messy dog-digging. Materials like concrete pavers, bricks, and stones hold up and are easy to clean-up. If your dog has some favorite digging spots, add river rock or stone to the beds. They drain well and look beautiful. We call them dog friendly, however, dog preventing might be a better term.

The green, green grass of home may also be problematic if urine spots are part of the look. Let’s face it, doggy urine and grass do not mix. The nitrogen or dog salts in dog urine actually burn the grass.

Need a paw print solution? Muddy Backyard Fix? Yellow lawn spots/burns? Synthetic grass might be the answer.
Love real grass best? See some suggestions other homeowners have decided on.
How-to’s for building a dog friendly landscape include: Cedar Chips, Pea Gravel, Concrete Areas with Doghouse, and Natural Grass with dry creek beds for optimal water drainage.

Some might want to consider a dog run for low maintenance clean-up while others are tired of the paw print struggle on indoor floors and carpets needing bigger solutions

From pavers to river rock, or dry creek beds with French drains to move water, we will point out plans that work. We love helping you plan a dog friendly landscape and a worry-free transition from outside to inside.

We’ll show off SynLawn for a Dog Friendly Yard: Beautifully Green, Pet Stay Clean, Optimal Drainage, Odor Control, Rodent and other Pest Control

Natural grass: RTF (Rhizomatous Tall Fescue) is a durable and self-repairing grass that is both dense and beautiful, holds up well to high traffic areas, and requires minimal watering compared with many traditional species.

    My dog eats pea gravel like candy. Had to pull it out so be careful. Of course not all dogs will eat pea gravel. Aka pee gravel.

    When your dog uses your lawn as a giant pee pad, overtime your lawn will smell soooo bad especially after it rains.

    Could I put turf on concrete and then have a dog there if it peed would it seep onto the concrete?

    We have had a total of 16 dogs. Dogs NEED to eat grass!!! Check with a few vets before doing a synthetic lawn!!! You dogs also need to sniff nature , not synthetic. This is a thumbs down for me with dogs.

    Can synthetic lawn be placed on top of concrete ?

    Good stuff Mikah? Sorry on spelling…Thought I saw it spelled this way on another video.

    Awesome stuff: I was unaware of the advances in synthetic lawn and the self-repairing RTF. I feel informed from having watched this and your other videos. Keep up the standard.

    Small stones are a big no no. You need a special type of artificial grass as well. I know of one called K9, normal artificial grass will smell badly very quickly from dog urine.

    While I appreciate all of the examples, I think you would be better served giving people ideas like "don’t do this, do this" "definitely do these things". This was more of a tour of people’s backyards who I don’t think own dogs, because there was a huge dirt hill in one of them.
