Kid and Dog Friendly
You can have a yard that both kids
and dogs can play in without being told to be careful. It all comes down to
plant selection and placement. Things we will consider are having a comfy
mulch, pathways, border control, gentle hardscape, marking posts, sensible
plants (flex without braking; nontoxic), shade and shelter, changeable water
source (keep it clean).
Some furry friends we may not want or at least
not have them eat your plants. Plants that are deer resistant are a must in sBirds are a wonderfull site and sound in the yard. Seed and suit feeders are
always a draw. Also bird baths and houses add a nice touch and encourage their
presence. Raccoons and squirrels can be a problem but with water motion sensors
and hot wires we can keep them at bay without harm.
Children need to
play outside so having a climber or open area for them is a must. Introducing
your children to plants and growing things will open their imagination and stay
with them a lifetime.
