LeadFarmer that is great. How much better to explain using photos. My dog isn't allowed on the flower bit lawn and he knows it and is very good, but I'm lucky enough to live in the country and there are other bits of the garden that he can run on.
I've seen photos of LF's current garden which is beautiful and bigger.
I suggested gravel, because it's the cheaper option, but if you can afford it, then paving it would be much better and easier to sweep if a lot of leaves fall on it. After all a garden is a lovely extension of the house and people spend money on carpets, sofa, kitchens etc so the garden deserves it too, if you can manage it.
