Not discounting any pH issues, but additionally I would think there would be a LOT of compaction there from the sidewalk itself coupled with a lack of direct moisture since it originally went in.

I would say the original sidewalk was there for around 40 years before it was removed.


As I mentioned, unless it's an easy fix. I'm not really moved to correct it, as it only appears after a length of time without rain. Mostly I was curious as to what CAUSED it.

The dog pee spots are much more annoying to me, but that's the result of an injured dog who can't go down steps to do business in the back the way he used to, so I just had to accept the fact that I will have them.
