Quick Fix Tips for Animal Lawn and Garden Damage

Most people love their animals dearly. They are faithful companions, make you smile, and will never be unhappy to see you. But what they can also do is damage your lawn. While it’s not the end of the world to have a little bit of lawn damage, it would be helpful if you could repair it without too much hassle.

Whether your dog is to blame, or the neighbour’s cats lack boundaries, you are sure to find some helpful lawn care tips below from The Lawncare Man. You’ll be on top of lawn repairs in no time.

Burnt Lawn

One of the sacrifices you often have to make for the love of dog ownership is burnt patches on your lawn. These are usually caused by urine, especially with high levels of nitrogen and salt. While encouraging your dog to drink more water is one way in which to reduce the instance of burnt patches, it’s not a sure-fire way to solve the problem. Especially as you can lead a dog to water, but you can’t make it drink.

If your burnt lawn problem is particularly bad, it’s a good idea to tie off the area so that your dog can’t access it. You can then start the lawn healing process by scraping off the dead lawn, aerating and watering it, and resowing it with grass seed. A layer of black plastic over the top of it can help to warm the seeds and ground for faster germination.
