A persistent yellow or brown spot in your lawn is not the end of the world, as long as you know how to prevent it. To keep dog pee spots from continuing to appear, start by switching up your dog’s outdoor routines.
The reason these spots appear comes down to different compounds in dog urine. But one of those very same compounds can actually be effective as fertilizer, when it’s present in smaller amounts. That’s right, urea found in dog urine can actually help your lawn to grow. It’s what causes the grass at the edges of a pee spot to be taller and darker green.
To turn your fluffy pup’s daily run for relief into something that helps your lawn, you’ll need to pay some attention. Let your dog out only at times when you can supervise them, and notice where they’re doing their business. Follow up their spray with one of your own, giving the grass a quick wash wherever dog pee has landed. If you dilute your dog’s pee every day with this method, your lawn should stay pee-spot free.
