Let’s face it, dogs need a place to pee just like every other creature on the planet. Without a specified place to urinate, such as pet potty pads or a designated spot on the lawn (Steer clear of fire hydrants, please!), damage to lawns is inevitable. The acidity of the urine can kill grass, and urine spots leave a pungent odor that can be embarrassing to homeowners. Here's a quick and easy solution to getting the urine smell out of your lawn.
Things You'll Need
- Black light
- Paper flags on toothpicks
- Urine odor-neutralizing agent such as Clear the Air in granule form
Use a black light at night to find the urine spots that are causing the odor.
Place flags in urine spots so you can find them in the daylight the next day to complete the next step.
Apply urine odor-neutralizing granules to the spots. Only a capful of granules, at the most, is needed. When the dog needs to go out, take him to a different spot in the yard to give the granules a chance to take effect.
Remove the flags, and repeat as necessary once a week.
