Summer is a beautiful time of year to sit out and relax in your yard. But the suns rays can do some major damage to your lawn. And what about those furry friends? Experts say, certain PH levels found in dog pee can leave unsightly brown spots that stick out like a sore thumb! Solve both of these problems in snap.

We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

    That is not being a good neighbor! I once had a neighbor whose little dog was habitually coming to my front yard. Frustrated with it, I dashed out and clapped my hands to shoo the dog back home. To my dismay, that poor little dog ran face first straight into the wooden fence dividing our yards. Only then did I find out that the poor little thing was blind and just doing the best he could. I have been very careful since to know the dogs around me so that doesn't happen again. Small service for a little blind dog.
