Are there any local companies that sell and install this?

Its going over dirt not concrete. This requires a proper gravel base, etc. Not interested in doing it myself.

I looked into this before. I you really search you will find some really high quality artificial turfs out. Most of them will involve shipping a roll from the U.S., and then find someone local who can install carpet. Over dirt and or gravel I would install a membrane fabric first, like they use in greenhouses. They are attached to the surface with like long tent pegs, with a flat head.

I did sod it and it died from lack of sunshine and dog pee.

There is artificial turf and artificial turf especially for dogs. There IS a difference and it has to do with toxicity of the product and DRAINAGE of the material itself. I bought a chunk of K9 turf from Amazon nearly five years ago. It's still holding up and just needs hosing down daily.

Due to lack of consistent sunshine at our place, we gave up and had flagstones put in, augmented by many potted plants. It worked and looks good. Feel free to come over and check it out if you wish.

Now Bob, a couple of interesting thoughts went thru my mind when you said that! Won't the dogs know it's artificial?
Or 'why do the dogs care'? Or my dog would know the difference right away!

Dogs should not be raised on cement or wire crate floors. It is bad for them. As I wrote before, you can actually buy turf today that is like astroturf or a putting green. The only thing to watch is that some dogs will try to rip it up. Extra revenue potential there, the Canuck Bob International Golf and Country Club. Only one hole, the 19th, sell prestige memberships and embroidered apparel.

Try the guy - I forget his name - that used to be the partner of Roberto of Chapala Tree Service. (He also puts in irrigation systems.) He replaced some for friends a few months ago, and they're happy.
I'm sure someone will know who I'm talking about, right?

I found someone to do this with the proper bedding and turf that allows for dog pee. It's not cheap though. $9800 pesos for 12 sq mtrs.

I'll post a pic when it's done.

They did the bedding today with a vermiculite cement type mixture. A thin layer of sand will go on this. Coming back Monday or Tuesday to lay the turf.
