Nine Point SomethingRustic Garden, Denver

Pets were a driving force in the redesign of Nine Point Something.
A desolate dog run was eliminated and replaced with pup-friendly grasses and other plantings to encourage curiosity and engagement. Drifts of sumac provided cover for one of the client's hobbies- birding. Plants were selected for their resiliency to the dogs: perennials, grasses and supple shrubs unaffected by, well, natural processes.

Tips for renovating with pets6. Find a safe place for your petsPets need to be kept away from work areas for their own safety and the safety of the workers. If your dog will be staying at home while construction is underway, it’s a good idea to let the workers meet your furry family member. This can help workers see that your dog is friendly and it will give your dog a chance to become familiar with your workers, which will hopefully lead to less barking. Depending on your pet and your home set-up, here are a few options to consider:Keep your pet in a closed room during the day – perhaps with access to a fenced run or catio enclosure.Provide a securely fenced dog run or catio enclosure a safe distance from the construction, and consider lining it with privacy material to block your pet’s view of the work. Board at a kennel for some portion of the time.Drop off at doggy day care – you may choose to do this every day or only on days when major building work is happening.10 Tips for Keeping an Indoor Cat Happy
