Need new winter lawn for dogs

Posted by GoofyYno 8 (My Page) on

we are almost finished remolding out back yard. I need to put something on the side of the house for the dogs and kids to play in. I was reflexively going to use rye, but I was wondering if there was a better option which would be less likely to suffer the ill effects from the dogs output yet still be soft enough for the kids to play football on?

also, If I do use rye, do I seed it on the dirt just like when I over seeded my bermuda (which is not in yet)?

How much sun will this area get?

It is about a 15 foot wide section on the east side on my house- blocked on the other side by a neighbor. I guess it gets partial sun.

Rye would be a good choice to get you though the winter.
