Our furry friends are family, and being part of a family means creating a safe and healthy environment for them. That is why we take them to the vet, give them vitamins, feed them with the right food, and build a playpen. If you have created a playpen for your pets but are downright harmful to them, you can build a natural one using cypress mulch.
Wait, is Cypress Mulch safe for my pets?
Yes. Cypress mulch or any wood mulch are safer alternatives for dogs and cats. They don’t carry any natural toxic materials that could be harmful to your pets in the long run. That is why it is the perfect choice for your main material in making a dog run or play pen for your pets.
So, how to build a playpen or pet run for your pets?
Pick the right spot for your playpen
The first thing that you should always consider is the location of your playpen that works for you and your pet. It should be located out of the way enough to not interfere with outdoor activities (barbie nights and just chilling out with friends), but still close enough for you to be able to check on your pet periodically.
Consider building your playpen in shaded areas. This is to avoid heat strokes for your pet. If your property is bare you can add in a patio shade or umbrella just to provide ample shade for your pets.
Decide on a design that benefits your pet
There are two things you need to consider when you’re building your pet’s playpen is its size and is if you want it to be a built-in or portable playpen. Also, don’t forget to draw it on a piece of paper.
Choose your Materials
You can add in fences to your pet’s playpen. There are plenty of options to choose from. After choosing the fence, choose the groundcover for the playpen. This is where cypress mulch comes into play. Not only does your pet get to enjoy its own space, but it also adds aesthetic to your landscape.
Lastly, build your pet’s playpen
The purpose of building a playpen with cypress mulch is to provide a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable place for your pets. It’s also an ingenious way to keep your pets from destroying the furniture and other parts of the house.
