Our original Synlawn was fantastic. Unfortunately when we needed to renovate (add a mother suite) the new Synlawn wasn't laid down properly & the real grass/weeds keep growing through it. HELP? I had to put down fake grass as our lawn was in the shade, got pooled with water when it rained & was always muddy. And with 6 large dogs...it was gross. At least the fake grass doesn't do that as long as we keep pulling out the weeds that grow through. Does it have to be redone? That's a lot of $$$. :(

We built a ‘poo garden’ for our pooch accidentally. He likes privacy for doing his business and we have a large wooden box planter and some tall dietes screening off what has become his ‘business’ area hidden from view under a large locquat tree at the back fence. He made it his own area. We have a large garden around our pool that is heavily planted and screened off with complying pool fences. The pooch can’t access them, nor the two side gardens beside the house ( unless he’s invited under supervision). He has access to our lawn though for sun baking, his private garden and the patio area that is paved and has a roof to get out of the rain and heat. But mostly he likes to be with us ( retired) inside the house, lying by a sunny window or snoozing on the sofa. Ah! Dogs have it all!

We had pet grade artificial turf installed in our backyard when we moved to a new home in California. The original yard was mostly dirt due to the drought. Though I know that issues around putting more plastic on the ground, it allowed us to get rid of 5 sprinkler heads and conserve water. It also gave our 3 dogs a place to play and to relieve themselves as the remainder of the yard was all concrete and pool.
