Can anything can be done about yellow patches in Bermuda grass from neighbor dogs using our grass as a toilet? Help!

Fortunately, it doesn't happen much, but it sure is unsightly.. Do we water the site to dilute it?

    Extra water is about the only thing you can do, and the sooner you think this might be the case, the better.

    One cure to avoid is adding anything to their diet. Chemical diuretics or tomato juice should only be given with a vet's consent.

    Walter, she can't change the neighbor's dog diet. I agree with Douglas, water the area and then talk to the neighbor. They shouldn't use your yard as their toilet.
