small backyard and dog
I have a fairly small backyard, maybe 30'x60', and a german shepherd mix dog. He's a very active dog, who doesn't dig but just running around in my yard tends to tear up the grass. I live in the Lansing area and was wondering, is there a type of grass that would grow in my area and be tough enough to stand up to this traffic? Maybe if there isn't, are there any methods of protecting the grass?I'm open to other alternative lawns too, as long as the plants are not poisonous to dogs and it will be green. Right now I think it will be a mud pit come spring.
