Synthetic Turf

Install synthetic turf over the run. It will look great, last 15 to 20 years, need no water, no mudd and solve your problems. Cost some $$ but you would only need to do the perimiter - about $6 a sq ft. This is a very valid option/solution and people are doing it all the time.

I have had the same problem in the past. I Tied a bunch of string like a spider web between the fence and tree's ect. Where the dog would run back and forth with the neighbors dog. He ran into it a couple of times at first then stopped. I have now removed alittle bit of the string at a time and seems to be working. Good luck

Yeah, that synthetic turf sounds like a great idea, just make sure it matches the rest of your grass

Sounds like a great idea though!
If then God so clothe the grass, wich is today in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more [will he clothe] you, O ye of little faith? (Luke 12:28)

For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's. (Romans 14:8)

I have that problem at my house, im in the process of figuring that out now so that I can do something this spring. I have three dogs, Black Lab, Visla, Boston Terrier honestly, the heavy rain we keep getting here, isn't helping much at all either.

When I aerated andover seeded this fall, we had four days straight of heavy rains and the "Georgia Flooding", So, needless to say my neighbor behind me will benefit from my work and seed!

Going to try and do something this spring.

It been a pain.
