We have bald patches in the grass from pet urine recently. Looking for the best product/routine to fix this, and also maintain it?
- You can buy pet-proof grass seed.
- The problem with dog pee is the concentration of nitrogen that it contains. Effectively, it over-fertilises the grass. Hence you'll see a burned area that is surrounded by rich, fast growing, dark green circle around it (too high a concentration in the middle, helpful concentration around it). Pouring water on the pee (ideally before before it dries) will dilute the fertiliser and give you a chance of avoiding the burned area. Adding a detergent (washing up liquid) will help the dilution - but is deadly for soil fauna (so avoid).
