If you are the proud and happy owner of a wonderful canine friend as well as of a lawn, you probably know already that the two are not necessarily compatible, dog urine being one of the worst enemies of grass. If all that playing and merriment on the grass has left your turf with brown spots, here are some efficient tips to treat grass for dog urine and to restore its green lushness:
- Remove the affected leaves – the grass leaves affected by dog urine cannot be brought back to life, the only way to address the issue being by first removing the dead leaves and then moving on to the other steps of the resuscitation process. Take the time to remove even the last leave affected by the urine, then use your poker to aerate the soil a bit.
- Sprinkle your seeds – the next step is to reseed the affected area. In this phase, you can proceed the way you usually do when you plant new grass, sprinkling the area with new seeds and then watering abundantly.
- fertilize the reseeded area – it is always a good idea to give a little help to your new grass to be able to become strong and green as quickly as possible. Pick a good organic liquid fertilizer product, possibly an organic one, and use it as indicated in the instructions. Keep watering the area and start mowing the new grass when it has reached the right height.
