    Default urine stench in dirt

    My daughter just bought a lovely new home, but the former owners had a 'dog run' where their dogs pottied. They had artificial grass (which we pulled out) and the dirt under is horrid!!! Does anyone have a remedy for this? Im figuring an enzymatic solution but ?????????????? any suggestions?

    I had a similar situation back home.. basically we used bleach. We poured non diluted bleach, let it sit there for a day n following day we just let the sprinkler drain it down. You really need to soak it a lot with water. If she's going to use it as a pooping area for her dog which is great to trained them immediately, she can just add 1/2" of crush pebbles. Puts a black layer material so weeds don't grow over the earth then the pebbles. Just a thought.

    Yes Duke is marking my plastic growing bag!

    We did the opposite. Most of our garden is taken up with pool and deck so we took out what remaining grass we had and put down artificial. It has been a godsend! My dogs are so much cleaner! We hose it down and use a deodorizer when necessary which is not very often. We use PE-51 or BioTurf so she might try one of those before putting any more dirt and natural grass down.

    If you don’t want to go with bleach, there is always baking soda that will neutralizes pH levels of the earth but you don’t drain it with water....just mix it in or vinegar will do the job too. Or.....basically just let it air out or.......I’ll ship you Duke, he’ll pee on it n mix da problem.

    That also looks like great product for kitty litter.

    I wonder how an enzymatic product would work, eg. by dissolving a cup of "Happy Campers" in a gallon of water https://www.amazon.com/Happy-Campers...ct_top?ie=UTF8
