Thanks boxerhaven. It really is pretty nice and easy to maintain. My son loves it too. He hoses it down with water and turns the back yard into a giant slip-n-slide

Do you think it would handle all of mine? What about poo poo clean up? Does it come with a guarantee not to rip or damage. What if you had them all going crazy in the yard. Sorry for so many questions but turf would be great for my busy guys.

It's very durable, and I do think it can handle many dogs. The new San Diego Humane Society just installed in in their runs and play area, so it does get loads of doggy traffic. There are also several kennels here which use it. They have a 10 year warranty that it won't tear or fade.
Poop clean up is easy. Just pick it up and hose down any messy poops. All else drains right through. It is installed over a six-inch layer of granite chips, so it drains very quickly.
They do market the product toward dog owners. Here's what the company has to say about dogs and the turf:

Didn't know you liked bugs Jr.
Do you know much about bugs?
I probably will have plenty of questions in the future.
There are way to many bugs in FL.

The further south you go the longer the grass must be to survive the hot months. In Maryland 3.5 inches is as low as you can go, tall fescue will survive the heat but blue grass browns out in the hot months. If you check with the co-op extension in your area you can get lists of plants that will attract helpful insects. If you want to go all out your local co-op or state will have listings of indeginous plants that will attract birds butterflies etc. With lawns check the ph acidic soil makes it better for weeds then turfgrasses. This pics are of my backyard no chems are used pond is bio-balanced fish are not fed the koi breed there, and when the pic was taken mulch washed out during a lg storm.graduation and 015.JPG
