Alternatives to Grass


I live in a house and I have a small garden but I cannot cut the grass regularly anymore because I am getting older. Can you please tell me if I can plant a ground cover or how I can solve my problem? I have 2 standard poodles that do not use the garden other then going out and looking around as I walk them many times a day.



Thank you for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners.  There are many choices for ground covers to replace your grass.  Please refer to this Toronto Master Gardener Gardening Guide on lawn alternatives:
