    Ok we are redoing our yard.So where Miss Rage is right now its just dirt and some grass/weeds.I want to put either pea stone or rock dust down instead of grass or just dirt.I know if i put either or down its gonna require raking ect no biggie.So what are some of the pro and cones with each of them?Now mind you her chain spot is on a small incline.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think you have to wet rock dust to keep it from blowing every damn where.

    Not sure, I thought I heard somewhere that it has to be wet or it tends to blow away...like I say might be wrong.

    It sure get's affected by CHAINS! LOL

    The chain will burn anything trying to "Grow" down, hence there usually arnt even weeds in a chain spot.

    for me i think it could work. although i do have chains they almost never get used being i dont have a fence and live in rural area. when i take the dogs out it is with me. im looking for something that would do well in a fenced in area just for my dogs to play or so i can just let em out to piss and shit real quick.

    Pea gravel gets kicked around alot and goes in the grass so when you mow it gets shot out of the mower

    Lime screening works better IMO you can tamp it down and it stays put,for the most part.Plus the lime is good for the urine smell

    was discussing with someone the other night about "gravel" in the chainspot and or in puppy pens...was thinking of a way (may be hard to describe), basically you would have you "gravel" on top, then a layer of "screening" under that, and then a drainage system under it in (pvc w holes running to a barrel)...the idea is, when its time to clean, walk out with a hose and nozzle, "pressure wash" the rocks off, it pushes everything down through the screen (but stops the gravel) and then into the barrel (which can have lime or something to break down the waste)....have no idea if that makes any sence but it does in my head :D....

    i use stone dust and i am very happy with it.
    its cheap and easy to maintain and it keeps the dogs out of the mud.
