Grass affected by dog urine can be a big problem. If left unchecked, the grass can die and the spot might become very difficult to properly reseed. The following tips regarding the processes and organic products you can use for grass and soil treatment will help a great deal:
- The first thing you have to do is to remove any dead growth that might already be beyond any redemption. Sometimes grass goes brown and is close to death, and at that point there isn’t much you can do.
- After clearing away dead grass and old growth, it’s time to wash away the rest with a hose. Doing that will maximize the chance to limit the growth of brown spots resulting from dog urine and pave a way for healthier grass to continue growing.
- Sprinkle garden lime on the affected area to eliminate any lingering odor and begin restoring the affected portion of your lawn.
- Treat the affected soil with the appropriate organic lawn care compounds to adjust the soil’s pH to normal and reduce the likelihood that the nitrogen from the dog urine could have a lasting effect.
- Finally, it’s time to reseed the affected spot and allow it to grow. The careful and appropriate use of organic liquid fertilizer will also help in this case to ensure that your grass will grow to be resilient and healthy.
