Brown spots on your lawn can be really frustrating, especially if you really care about the whole appearance of your living environment. They can be the result of several factors, including dog urine. There are simple solutions on how to bring back dead grass from dog urine and that is by applying Revive products specifically formulated for this purpose. But is it the only thing to blame for this type of nuisance?
In order to properly understand how grass functions, it is good to know a little bit of chemistry. For one thing, nitrogen is one of the basic elements that most plants need in order to survive and develop healthily. It is this substance that gives plants their green color.
But too much nitrogen can actually kill your grass. And dog urine has very high concentrations of nitrogen. That explains the brown spots that appear when your dog urinates on your lawn. The nitrogen in the urine dehydrates the grass.
At any rate, it is not just dog pee that can cause brown spots on your lawn. Too much shade can also be very harmful, as well as excessive fertilizing or mowing too often, too low or when there is excessive humidity or too much dryness. Dull blades can be yet another reason, so you should check on their state once in a while. Fungus may be another reason for these spots to appear.
