Shannon had Empire turf laid in the dust bowl garden for her family. This particular grass is tough and hard-wearing with good drought tolerance.
They also placed compressed nylon mats (known as Image Mats) at each of the four doorways to help prevent dirt being traipsed into the house. Compressed nylon is good at trapping dirt and small fibres and is also very easy to hose clean. You can purchase mats at www.imagemats.com.au.
