    Default What do I do about my lawn?

    So the snow finally melted here in Minnesota and this was the surprise I had waiting for me. Last fall it was lush and green.
    This may be a dumb question but I thought only female urine killed grass?
    Any ideas of what to do?
    Thanks for any help.

    Our lawn also had the same fate over the winter from the snow, and also from us walking on it when it was wet from the snow, and from letting them pee on the lawn. My hubby just bought some grass seed and will be placing some fertilizer and the grass seed and then keep the dogs off the lawn to let it grow back. Now that the weather is nice, we walk them further and off the lawn. I also give my guys Apple Cider Vinegar in their drinking water, it is supposed to balance the Ph levels in their bodies, so it eliminates the yellow staining on the lawn.

    Thank you for the help! I quick ran to the grocery store on my lunch break to get some acv, any suggestion as to a brand? I had saw something on another thread about tear stains about avoiding certain brands and that some worked better than others.

    I recommend getting Bragg organic, raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar. It has the mother in it.

    We live in Calfornia, so not the same weather going on! We have St Augustine grass, which is very, very tough. It does get brown spots..but not nearly like other sod. The cool thing is you can dig out the dead..plant a couple of plugs and it spreads and is full and healthy in a month or so.

    Be REALLY careful with fertilizer or anything like that around your bullies, there are tons of chemicals in that stuff. We found a pet friendly organic fertilizer that I put down in the early spring and it has worked wonders so far.

    Thanks for the reminder, had a brain burp, or something. I always try and watch other people's lawns or areas where there are signs on the lawn that they have been chemically treated, so I don't know why I wouldn't have thought about that for our lawn. What product brand do you use? We haven't spread the lawn seed yet, but will probably do it this weekend. Again thanks for the reminder.

    From what I have read on the subject to water as soon as possible to the pee site is the best remedy. It's the nitrogen in the pee that kills it because it becomes an overdose. Nitrogen is in fertilizers too so fertilizer on pee will compound the problem. I know where my dogs pee if its just once or so in a spot that area will be lush and very green but when they pee repeatedly in or near the same spot it will kill the grass if its not watered. We are getting quite a bit of rain at this time so its not much of a problem now
