Lol, Freestep! The goats are a great idea! They could trim the weeds, and I could train the dogs in herding!

I don't have to have a beautiful yard, I'd just like some grass! I'm telling you the yard is awful. It's literally almost all weeds. That's why I haven't called my lawn guy in cause I'd just be paying him to trim the weeds. Lol.

I wish I could afford to just do the fake grass. No cutting or watering! That would be awesome.

Get some estimates from a sprinkler company, they should know how to set it up so that you have equal zones depending on your water pressure.

Also, you could treat your place like a farm/ranch (not sure how big it is) and cross fence. Of our 2.3 acres, probably 1.5 is fenced and that is cross-fenced, so the dogs can be in one side, the other side or both depending. It works out pretty well.

See can be tricky, seed grows best when lightly watered a couple of times a day, think moist.

Plugs may be an option, I have filled in some pretty big bare areas with plugs during growing season and with watering they spread out pretty quick.
