bthomasb1, congratulations! In your shoes, I would start from the soil on your acres, and by planting young trees, maybe some long-live flowers. After that, I would lay down some artificial grass, like this ( here: https://bestyardproducts.com/best-artificial-grass/ ). I like it more than natural in some cases, because it's way more reliable for the backyard, you know.
