ASK THE EXPERTS

Q - What is the best way to counteract the effect of dog urine on a lawn?

A -  The best method to prevent the grass from the yellowing and burning caused by the urine’s nitrogen content is to liberally “flush” it with water, suggests University of Arizona Maricopa County Cooperative Extension (MCCE) Master Gardener Antje Schneider. To be effective, you will have to watch your dog (or the dogs coming onto your property) diligently so that you can apply water immediately. Another option is to train your dog “to go” elsewhere, such as on gravel mulch.
