Dying Grass

    My dog has started urinating on our lawn, which is leaving burn spots. Does anyone have any ideas on how to counteract the brown spots, without replacing the grass altogether? My grass is a Bluegrass/Fescue mix. I am under the assumption that these areas are basically being overfertilized from the concentrated nitrogen in dog urine.

    Thanks for any helpful hints.

    Try to control where you dog urinates, give him a corner of the yard or something, the only way to fix the problem is rake the spots, add some new topsoil to the dirt and seed. Good Luck.

    There is food for the dog you can buy that will make the dogs urine less potent. Put baking powder or moth balls were the dog is going and he wont go there any more

    i heard that putting tomato juice on the dog's food would neutralize the urine and keep the spots from happening.
