Problems with a muddy yard?

oct 6We’ve had a lot of snow and ice recently in Central Texas. I recently visited a friend of mine and her home has beautiful, dark hardwood floors. She also has two dogs and two young children. After all of the wet weather, she finds that when the children and dogs play in the backyard, they constantly track in mud. She complains it’s impossible for her to keep her hardwood floors clean. I suggested she investigate replacing her natural grass with artificial turf. That’s what I did several years ago and since then I’ve never had to worry about mud being tracked in on my clean floors.
