Dog Urine And The Lawn
Every year I get a number of requests from readers asking me to help them prevent the spots of dead grass caused by the urine of their dog. While I have discussed this problem in the past it seems to deserve another shot. When I suggest to a reader getting rid of the dog, they don’t think that is very funny. There is no question that some dog urine will kill grass. It is the high concentration of nitrogen in the urine that does the dirty deed.
All dog urine does not automatically kill grass. There must be a fair amount of urine applied to one spot.
If I am not willing to get rid of my dog, what can I do to deal with this problem?
Once the grass is dead, it will not come back with any snake oil remedies that might be sold. You must reseed the area to get rid of the brown spot.
