dog park problem

Alicat asks:


Hi I represent our local town dogpark. The area is a disaster the 'grass' is gone and we're left with a dust bowl! Is there a particular type of lawn that can withstand this sort of wear and tear? I can't recall any groundcover plants that would work.


Im sorry to tell you but from my experience all types of ground cover will succumb to the traffic and bathroom habits of the dogs. If your park is large enough one option would be to section it off and rotate play area over time. When area is not in use a fast growing grass seed like perennial rye grass could be put down and watered regularly this will produce a reasonable lawn in just a couple weeks. If rotation is not an option a wood chip mulch maybe your best option. I would stay away from synthetic turf it tends to get very hot in the summer sun.
