  1. What to put on grass-less backyard to control dirt?

    Our very active mid-sized and large-sized dogs have turned what used to be a nice lawn in our backyard into lots of dirt. Since they are back there so much, they've quickly turned the dirt into very fine dust, which they also love to lay in. We need to do something about the dirt and dust they bring into the house on their coat and legs. We seem to have to dust more than other people, vacuum, and sweep the hardwood. We thought of putting wood chips, bark, more grass - we want to know what the best option is, or if there is more or far better options. Grass would be too hard to grow with the animals trampling it. Thanks for any help Sorry, In the Seattle, Washington area -8b climate area, and most of the dirt that was grass was under big trees we have.
