Are there any alternatives to zoysia grass? I have some bare spots in my backyard, mostly from grubs, and a few from the dogs. I can't put down soil & seed, as the dogs will dig it up. I can't put down Scott's Patchmaster (which I use in the front), because the dogs will dig it up and possibly eat it.
Zoysia plugs are a compelling option, but Nebraska is a questionable area for it in terms of climate. My lawn also borders my neighbor's yard, and I don't want to take over her lawn with zoysia.
Sod is an option, I guess, but it's a bit expensive and time consuming.
Are there any other species of creeping grasses that work like zoysia?
