Unlock the entire Houzz
October 15, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Just purchased a Lake Tahoe home with fenced yard for my dogs. The lot is huge, but not landscaped. At first I thought this was great - no maintenance, and the dogs can't destroy it. Well, what I discovered is that with the ultra-dry climate, the dust the dogs bring in is impossible to keep up with - EVERYTHING in the house is covered with dirt. I clean everything constantly and still suffer from the dust. Anyone have a lost-cost, low-maintenance solution? Keep in mind, hard-scape is not an option due to local ordinances regulating permeable coverage to prevent run-off into Lake Tahoe and putting lawn in such a huge area would not be environmentally or economically feasible. Lot is over 18,000 sq ft. Please, if you know of any durable drought-resistant solutions, I am desperate!!!!!
