Counteracting Pet Damaged Grass

Counteracting Pet Damaged Grass

Our pets love our fresh, luscious grass arguably more than we do. When it comes to using the bathroom, sometimes household pets can do a number on your lawn when they go number one. Pet urine can create grass burns, discolored, or dead patches in your lawn that can quickly undermine your yard's health. With proper lawn care and lawn treatments like liquid fertilizer, you can counteract lawn damage caused by pet urine.


Pet Damage on Grass

Your grass acts as nature’s bathroom for dogs, sometimes cats, and even small wild animals like rabbits and birds. These natural acts can lead to pretty unnatural results and damage to your lawn in the form of unattractive lawn spots. Dog urine is not only potent but contains a high concentration of nitrogen that can burn, stunt, or otherwise damage your grass. Too much nitrogen can throw off the balance of macronutrients in the soil, causing unsightly lawn issues like grass burns. To learn more about making healthy soil, check out these recommendations.


Greener Grass

One way to minimize the damage of pet urine is to quickly dilute these spots with water after your pet has done its business. If this isn't doing the trick, we have lawn boosters and fertilizers that will help revive yellow or dead grass and even aid in fixing grass burns.

There are so many benefits to our lawn boosters:

  •     Enhance your lawn’s denseness
  •     Fight mineral deficiencies
  •     Speed up new growth
  •     Improve overall greening
  •     Enhance soil

With an easy sprayer application, these boosters are a no-brainer to implement into your lawn care routine and aid in combating grass burns from pet damage. Pet urine damage or not, a lawn booster is an excellent treatment to consider to improve your soil's health. Another natural lawn treatment to combat pet damages is the use of liquid fertilizer - let’s learn more!

Other Reasons for Yellow Spots

If you still see that your lawn is damaged and know it's not from your pet, these spots can come from a multitude of other lawn issues such as weeds, inadequate water, overexposure to the sun, or a nutrient deficiency in the soil.
