Most people agree that having a lawn is one of the joys of owning a home with a yard, along with the even greater pleasure of owning a dog. But these two do not always go together well. Lawns can be affected by dog urine and get burned, looking brown and lifeless.
Dead grass is the result of the nitrogen released from dog urine. But the good news is there are some things which you can do to revive your lawn if you follow some good tips on how to bring back dead grass from dog urine. Here are four of these tips:
- After your dog urinates on the lawn, the trick is to pour a few cups of water on that spot to dilute the urine.
- Remove the brown grass from your lawn, and re-plant it while also using some special natural products to fertilize those spots and make the grass look nice and lush again.
- Apply special products to your lawn, which are made to fix and neutralize nitrogen, the one agent guilty for making brown spots appear.
- Avoid applying too little or too much fertilizer to your lawn. A moderate amount helps plants develop quicker and in a more natural way.
If you have a dog and a lawn, with the right steps, you can ensure that your dog doesn’t destroy the grass in your yard.
