Totally Repair Dead Grass Spots Damaged By Dog Urine In 3 Easy Steps
For several years I researched and read all kinds of information about how to prevent urine burned grass from occurring thanks to Duke but have not found anything that was doable and 100% successful. So I shifted my thinking and efforts from prevention to spending some time to repairing the burned areas every spring.
Immediately afterwards soak the newly seeded area with water. But only use a light sprinkle flow from the garden hose or a large watering can. You do not want the seeds to wash away. Do this daily for the next couple of weeks unless you have rainy days.
I used this system for about ten years. I had a couple of years where the seed did not take so did a reseeding and covered the area with peat moss which is readily available in my area.
You will notice in the before photo I had to repair a very large burned area from Duke's urine. We had one like this in the front yard and in the backyard. I explain in the original blog post why this happened and I share the story of our lovely pet who is no longer with us. I also provide more photos and detailed instructions to help you repair your burned grassy areas due to dog urine.
