Can this equation be solved?
March 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma
2 pups + 1 muddy LI backyard + 1 giardinophile & naturalizer = ?
So far, disaster. The pups stay clear of the border gardens so I get my herbs and summer tomatoes without issue. The problem is devising a design with natural elements, flagstone, gravel...softscaping with more plants and less grass. Pups do a bit of romping so grass doesn't grow well. Is there a solution to keep everyone happy?

A hardy ground cover instead of lawn might work. Ask at your local (not a national chain) nursery about what is native to your area. The horticulturalist on staff will be able to answer all of your questions.

What Zone are you living in? I recommend the use of Mondo Grass and Ajuga for some hardy groundcovers. Also creating some large mulch areas for the dogs to play on. Mulch areas are much more forgiving to high traffic and will keep down the mud.
