Looking for non-toxic, easy to maintain and grow in East Texas, Zone 8. Has sprinkler system, some shade. Would also appreciate something that would be difficult to dig up. Bouvier des Flanders dogs. Thank you.

Dog traffic makes very difficult to grow anything under. Anything will be uprooted and because the shade needed for the dogs will impact plant growth. Some success can be accomplished if you can rotate the pen from different locations to allow lawn to recover.
