Backyard Ideas to Delight Your Dog Choose comfortable materials. Landscaping materials shouldn't get too hot, should be easy to walk on and ideally should not cling to fur and feet. Concrete, brick, flagstone, pebbles and smooth rocks are all good choices.Mulch (except cocoa mulch) and small bark chips are dog friendly and won’t heat up too much, though you’ll have to replace them periodically.
I like the idea of having a brick border along the fences - It can be straight or wavy like this photo. It can be raised up then a foot or so (6-12"). I'm liking this idea for next Spring... Also, could use bricks just to border the walkway to the house in the front and back of the house ... Make it cohesive with the front.... Yes....
