I had a 3 hole putting green installed at my dad's place. It worked very well for their little poodle, and hosed off nicely. In the fall, I would take a vacuum for the leaves and it always looked good.

If I went that route I would keep my irrigation system so I could at least let it wash it off every now and then.
I'd like to see the look on the next owner's face when they see artificial grass with an irrigation system You would have to come up with some great story to go with that!

My son lives in Az and 90% are artificial turf 9% stones and 1% real grass where he lives. The real lawns are always nasty looking. I was out walking and I saw a real lawn that looked like home in Pa. On close inspection it was fake compleat with fake weeds. Even the cut wasn't perfect. I was impressed.

Here I sit this morning on my tractor in the back yard thinking what to do?

You are not considering demolishing those patios, are you? Where in the hell am I going to sleep after passing out at the bar?

Patios are staying. I'm just taking advantage of slow times when I have employees at my disposal.imageuploadedbyhome-repair1401724646.992808.jpg

How about a Zen Garden and replace all the grass with DG? After all, you could use the Zen to decompress.

As long as it is built on concrete. It sucks I am not a concrete guy at all but living in this desert it is impossible to keep things alive.

I did clean it up now to decide what to do. imageuploadedbyhome-repair1401733655.109870.jpg

Instead of a pool, how about a pond/water feature and desert scape?
