But after two years of dealing with the results of muddy paws – tracks in the house, dirt in the pool, and soggy, squishy sod all around the pool’s edge – Glen had had enough. He even talked to his architect about options for paving the entire area. Luckily, the architect offered a better solution: artificial turf.
