Everyone that has a dog knows the issues of dog urine and maintaining a lush, green lawn. Frustration comes and goes, but there are many things that you can do to help correct the problem.
Many factors can make lawn burn occur more:
- The size of the dog matters. Of course, larger dogs will leave more urine on your lawn, thus cause more damage.
- Believe it or not, female dogs cause more damage than males because they don’t tend to mark several areas like their male counterparts.
- High protein diets will cause more damage due to the higher levels of nitrogen in the dogs urine. More protein . . . more nitrogen.
- Other issues with your lawn such as disease or draught will compound the issues with dog urine.
- Nitrogen is increased when you fertilize. Nitrogen coupled with more dog urine will cause more lawn burn.
- After your dog relieves itself, saturate the area with some water.
- Don’t overload your dog with protein. Use a high quality dog food.
- Train your dog to only use one location so that it’s easier to maintain.
- Hydrate your dog. More water in the dog’s system will help dilute the urine.
- Use a urine-resistant gras such as ryegrass and fescue.
- Water frequently and don’t over-fertilize.
