    astro turf - save lots of money on the water, fertilizer, weed control etc.

    So something other then a grass lawn. Gravel, wood chips, bark, clover, creeping thyme.

    Checked a few Colorado Sod Places, and they all say Bluegrass is the best. Maybe your yard is too packed down from all the "traffic" and needs to be amended before putting down sod, and sounds like seeding would not work too well for the same reason. Best of luck.

    I have five dogs and steep hills and tiers in my back yard. The level of the house in back and up the steep hill of the first tier has no grass because of the foot traffic. We are thinking of using pavers to extend the patio to include the first level the house is on. I don't know what to do to the hill, seeds just flow down when it rains and the dogs trample it before it even has a chance.

  • Sod is probably your best choice. but you have to keep your dogs, kids, and adults off your backyard till the grass is ready for its second cut. otherwise, your lawn will be too thin and will be wrecked in no time.
    Allow your lawn to be thick. in the meantime take your pets and 2 legged people to a park or pathway. Please do not take any shortcuts.
    You will be sorry.
