Does anybody have any experience with using astro-turf type ground cover in kennels or airing yards? We are redoing our yard as the wife is tired of seeing the brown bermuda grass in winter and the mud the dogs track in. Over seeding in rye is getting old and really doesn't seem to really improve things that much with the constant dog traffic. Wondering how the synthetics turfs held up with the dogs trying to dig; sanitation issues and deodorization; keeping it in place and not rolling up as the dogs run their laps; hair build up, etc. Any real difference in the cheap stuff and the spendier versions? While we are not yet on metered water, it is due to get here in a couple years, so was also wondering if it really takes less water or is it about a wash keeping it clean? Any other upside or downside?
