Fence in Fido Keeping furry family members safe should be a high priority when you landscape your backyard. Make sure you have a sturdy, escape-proof fence that is tall enough to keep your dog from jumping over. Also, make sure gates can be locked. Never leave your dog unattended for long periods of time. Here, a vinyl, gnaw-proof picket fence keeps Fido confined when needed.
The best backyards are those designed for multiple uses. Here, for example, the family added an inviting stone and concrete patio below their deck. One end of the patio has a seating area surrounding a fire pit, while at the other end there's additional seating next to an above ground spa.
