Pets are a major part of the family in Australia and having a fantastic outdoor space for play is important. Regular maintenance and upkeep of your lawn is integral to managing the effects of urine and digging habits. With a range of quality, pet-friendly instant lawns at Strathayr, we can help you to find a suitable turf that your furry friends will love and that you can easily maintain.
Training Your Pets
Your pets can benefit from a spacious backyard to play in and a beautiful lawn can make it more appealing for you to spend time outdoors as well. Teaching your dog to urinate in one area of the backyard, regular disposing of droppings and restricting play areas to prevent them from digging holes can all help to protect your lawn. Walking your dog reduces boredom and loneliness, meaning they will expend energy otherwise dedicated to digging holes or destroying your garden while also giving them the option to toilet away from your lawn.
Dead spots on grass from the cumulative effects of urine look unappealing in the backyard. Simple techniques such as spraying water on recently urinated areas can help with dilution, but this requires you to be vigilant. If your dog tends to dig holes or cause dead spots, you can spot-fix the damaged areas by reseeding, or you can install instant turf to have your lawn looking as good as new.
