How to Neutralize Dog Waste in the Soil

While small amounts of dog urine and feces can serve as fertilizer, large amounts can cause dead patches and burn spots in your yard. Urine generally causes more damage because it releases nitrogen all at once as a liquid, while feces release nitrogen more slowly. Urine damage often appears as circular brown patches in the lawn with green rings around the outside. The center turns brown because of the nitrogen overload, while the peripheral areas obtain diluted nitrogen and become healthier. Therefore, the management of dog waste problems in the soil should focus on minimizing nitrogen concentration.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things You'll Need

Salt can enter soil from a surprising number of sources. A main source, and one that causes a great problem for grass along a street, is the use of salt to melt ice and snow.
