Is it worth planting grass seed if you have dogs?
Last year the wife and I spent many hours trying to make the yard look half way decent. It's a small yard, but grass can really make a property look so much better. We had a couple weeks last summer where it was hot and the grass didn't get enough water so it went downhill. Lesson learned.
We got our first pup beginning of April (last year) and noticed right away it was going to difficult getting the grass to come back with all the urine. This year - it's a different story. The 'playing' in the back yard by the dogs seems to be more of a problem then the urine.
My wife doesn't want to put the work into it. She thinks the dogs will tear it up and it's just money down the drain. I think we can do it, but it'll mean no dogs on the yard for awhile.
Dog Owners - do you have "dog areas"? If you have a small yard, what do you do?
Growing up we always had dogs AND grass and it never seemed to be a problem! Bah!
