Figuring out best way to handle issues from my backyard
I am looking for ways I can deal with my situation and it not cost a lot because I am a renter with my husband and we don’t want to see a rent increase for the changes that may be needed if we get our landlord involved.
I live about 1 1/2 hours west of Houston and have been getting tons of rain on a house without gutters so the water just beats down to the ground. Around the backside on the edge of the house there is no grass and just sandy soil with the rest of the yard St. Augustine. This is causing a huge pain in my side because no matter what I do outdoor mat/towel inside my dogs and kids drag it all through my house which only makes more work for me and the backyard is just awful looking.
I am wondering if it is because of the rain run off the roof that nothing grows around the edges? Or is it the soil/sand? And also what are good options to fix it or something that will work until we decide to move again.
Thank you to all that respond!!
