We moved, and instead of having a full size yard for our two dogs, we have
an area of about 400 sq ft. The dogs are fairly big, about eighty pounds
The ground covering was originally ivy. That doesn't work well because the
dog crap falls down below the surface where you can't see it to clean it up.
So, we're pulling up all the ivy, knowing that we have to lay something else
My wife wants sod, but the dogs are female, and I'm pretty sure that the sod
won't last too long, if it ever takes root at all. I think wood chips are
out because they'll soak up urine. Rocks are also out because dog urine and
excrement will sink to the bottom.
We're looking at artificial grass, but we don't have any experience with it.
Its either that or dirt, unless there's an alternative I don't know about.
I'd appreciate any suggestions or shared experiences in this area.
