Dog-friendly drought-tolerant groundcover?
We're looking for a good drought-tolerant replacement for our grass lawn, and have been a bit frustrated because we keep finding lovely solutions that can't withstand daily trampling by a dog.
Has anyone had any good experiences with drought-tolerant plantings that can be walked (run/pranced!) on? Our dog is large--75 pounds--so anything at all sensitive to being walked on won't work. We'd also love something that doesn't need mowing, but that's secondary to the drought and dog reqs.
Oh, and we're in the San Francisco Bay Area (but on the warmer side, away from the coast and fog).
Would love to hear what solutions others have found--thanks!
