Dogs and Lawns
Dogs can be wonderful companions and guardians, but they can also wreak havoc on lawns. Dead spots from high traffic and animal waste can quickly ruin a green lawn. In fact, pet waste, urine especially, is a major culprit of lawn damage from dogs. Understanding how pets damage lawns and monitoring animal behavior on your lawn can help you find a solution to treat and prevent turf damage.
