Mine is a small, urban yard. I don't have much grass b/c, well, I can't stand the stuff. I've got 95% garden and 5% grass. The problem this time of year, though, is that the girls are digging digging digging DIGGING! They dig, I rake it back into the beds. rinse, lather, repeat Today I bought some scratch in the hopes that it'll keep them busy for a little while and maybe distract them from kicking every last bit of mulch and dirt out of my beds. if it'l work, but at least they were happy!
