Making Your Garden Safe For Your Pet
When you have a pet, you will want your garden to be a safe place for them to run around and explore without the risk of them getting hurt, escaping or poorly.
One of the first things you want to do to ensure your garden is safe for your pet is to walk the perimeter. Make sure there are no easy escape routes for your pet. This includes replacing any dodgy fence panels, filling any holes in the ground, and ensuring the gate shuts effectively and stays shut.
Another aspect you will want to consider with regards to making your garden safe for your pets is the plants. Some plants are dangerous for animals and can make them extremely poorly if digested. You will want to ensure you remove any poisonous plants to keep your pet safe when exploring your garden.

For example, items with sharp edges may cause your pet to become injured if caught on. Small stones may also be swallowed by your pet which could, unfortunately, end in them passing away.
