I love them, ChanteyLass! Thanks for sharing that link!


Kat, I don't know your climate or soil conditions, but I don't think you are likely to find a ground cover to fill the bill. Even grass growing in optimal conditions has limits - look at the time, attention and watering needed to maintain golf courses and athletic fields - and grass is by far the most durable groundcover for trafficked areas.

What about simply heavily mulching the "play area" for you and the dog instead of trying to plant the area?
