i will be putting in lots of flower beds sitting areas ect, but i do need some lawn for lay one and for the dogs to run around on, ive got 2 picky dogs who wont pee on naything but grass and oe with Very sentivie feet (he wont walk on mulch or gravel and gets warey about the sand...right now if its been raining out because the goround is currently just patches of weednyess breaking up the clay hell actually JUMP from weed patch to weed patch so his feedt dont touch the dirt lol.

I will admit, the backyard will be primarily designed for the dogs comfort lol. the fronts where my english flower arden is slowly going in (slowly expanidng the bed and removing more and more of the current lawn, what "lawn" i decide to leave will be clover
and the side yard just off my carport (being used as a patio lol) is going to be a gravel yard with my little pond and firepit (and hopefully nice and private as a meditation space then edible beds over by the rabbit patch with paths inbetween and a gravel patio for sitting (so when people come to pick out their bunny i have a ncie spotto sit and chat with them ect) leaving the section directly off the back deck as the only space the dogs can realy "let loose" i plan to edge the entire area with edible landscaping ect but would like at least a little soft green ness. if i could do 100% clover or a moss lawn id LOVE to, i ust dont think moss would work in my full sun tend to be dry area and clover doesnt seem to be as foot traffic hardy. though since getting a little bit of rain the other day ive noticed patches where th clover died off are starting to spiring back up...i LOVE clover lawns lol
