When the snows melted this spring, did they reveal dead, brown patches of grass in your lawn? The most common cause of dead patches of grass can be attributed to the acidity in Fido’s urine.
1. To start with, first rake all of the dead grass away.
2. Sprinkle some lyme on the soil. This will break down the acidity, and give the grass seed a better start. Lyme will not burn your grass or the seed.
3. Spread some soil on top of the lyme.
4. Sprinkle grass seed suitable for your region over the area.
5. Top all of this with some more soil. This will protect the seed from birds.
6. Keep the soil moist, but not so wet that the water washes the seed away.
