Therapy gardens neednt be large. In fact, a small footprint can make them easier and less costly to tend. They can be sited almost anywhere on a property, but terrain, a homeowners wish for privacy, and the amount of light needed for the desired plantings will help determine the best spot. Many therapy gardens are built in secluded places, away from a house and neighbors or at a different elevation, says Sacramento, Calif.–based landscape designer Michael Glassman.
Keeping up with a pet takes work, but features can be built and materials selected to pare maintenance. According to a 2015 study conducted by Houzz, the best floors for most pet owners are hardwood, such as oak or mahogany. Homeowners might consider a distressed or matte finish with a sealant if scratches are an issue. Tile and stone also work well. Collins tries to steer buyers away from carpet, which can make removing pet odors tough. Also encourage your clients to favor microfibers with tight weaves for upholstery, says Tracy Lynn, principal designer and owner of the Tracy Lynn Studio in San Diego. Thelen recommends installing a central vacuum cleaning system with multiple outlets so sweeping up pet hair is easier. If animal-related allergies are an issue, Collins recommends an eco-friendly energy recovery ventilator, which continually exchanges stale for fresh air.
