We've had Dream Turf for about 11 years. We are totally happy with it. We had a complete mud pit of a backyard - primarily mulch and dirt. Because of how many trees we have there was also zero chance of grass growing and most ground covers would either die or couldn't withstand our dog's foot traffic. It has stood the test of time and looks really great. We did a partial installation of our backyard and now regret not doing the whole thing!
