With dog spots in Denver, it is important for us to understand the root of the problem before we can take any preventive measures. Dog spots are yellow, brownish deadened areas found in lawns where dogs have urinated, or those spots can also be known as dog urine grass. Our lawns contain nitrogen in the soil, there are also high amounts of nitrogen in dog urine, once combined an excess of nitrogen has been created causing the grass to ultimately burn and then die.
There are opportunities to combat the dreaded dog spot, it is just important that the lawn care treatment remains consistent for there to be results. To begin, longer watering cycles focused on urine-impacted areas is one of the surest ways to eliminate spots, in addition to quality feeding and mowing. However, not everyone has the time to dedicate to that task. Another alternative would be ensuring that your dog is drinking enough water, because with more water comes diluted urine. This can be achieved by coating their food in tomato juice or using vet-approved salt additives, however it is always important to check with your vet first.
