Mostly, the plan went well. The landscaping looked great, the pool was a popular gathering spot, and the dogs loved, loved, loved jumping in and out of the water and running around the yard.

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.
