Dirt patch instead of lawn
I have two dogs that love to run around like lunatics, and in doing so, killed all the grass, weeds, whatever was green and growing in my yard. I have tried several types of grass seed, but none hold up to the abuse. I live in Central New Jersey, and am looking for some suggestions as to how to get something growing back there. When they run around now, it looks like the dust bowl from the 1930's.
