Yep if the homeowner walks to his back yard from the garage there is a wear line in the turf where they walk.
I agree ric 100% thats why I started my post with "unless you want to use your yard" In our area most people dont so yes sa is probably the best overall choice....maybe...when it comes to a yard like most people in the world outside of retirementville, they actually go out and use it, and when that is factored in SA is probably a poor choice.
