6 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, September 13, 2011 HOMELIVING Allow pets a chance to Great gardens can create the perfect pet and plant balance. With spring here, we're all looking forward to a great gardening season. And experts say changes in our way of life have resulted in a shift away from the big backyard to smaller spaces designed to accommodate everything from productive gardens to the family dog. ''People are finding smarter ways to utilise their outdoor space; from dwarf fruit and vegetables for smaller spaces, to growing systems that allow the freedom to garden up walls and on rooftops,'' says Matthew Carroll from the Nursery & Garden Industry Australia. Mixing pets and plants TIPS from Pet Care Information Advisory Service to create the perfect pet/plant balance. The outdoor activities of your pet will vary depending on what type of animal you have. Have plans in place for the active infant stage, knowing that you can relax more in the placid later years. All outdoor areas should be secure. For dogs this includes fencing that can't be jumped over or dug under. Cats can be kept secure in an enclosure, allowing fresh air without leaving your property. Section off a separate area of your garden for pet toileting, cover with gravel or wood chips. Many common garden plants are toxic to pets. Your local nursery can advise you on this. Surround the garden bed with a strong hedge or raise it to a level that your pets can't reach.
