5. PAW-FRIENDLY LANDSCAPING ELEMENTS
Integrate pet-friendly features into your landscaping, such as designated recreation spots. Choose plants and decorations that are safe for pets, creating a harmonious environment. Create a comfortable space for your pets to unwind and have fun, enhancing their overall experience.
6. SEASONAL MAINTENANCE TIPS
Adjust your care routine to accommodate fluctuating weather conditions throughout the seasons. Prepare for torrential rain or wintry conditions by ensuring proper drainage to prevent matting. Protect the turf during harsh temperatures, taking measures to maintain the turf's longevity. Look at our wintertime guide for more tips and tricks. Annual professional maintenance is also suggested.
7. ENSURING SAFETY FOR PETS
Regularly check for sharp items or debris that could hurt your pets during their play. Check for the absence of toxic substances in fertilizers or pesticides used in the surrounding area. High-quality turf virtually guarantees a safe place for your pets to thrive, but it’s still smart to be sure nothing harmful has landed in your yard.
