The Q&A Archives: durable lawn

Question: We have 2 very active dogs who run around the yard and tear the grass up. Is there a durable grass that is also drought tolerant that we can plant?

Answer: Melissa,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

Such dog "traffic" is too much for any grass. If you can spread the foot traffic out a bit a tough grass such as Bermuda or Zoysia might recover from the damage. If they keep pounding the same spot such as along a fence line there is little you can do.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
