Step 1: Identify the urine stains Identify the spots in your lawn that are urine stains. Look for regular circles that start as yellowish and turn brown. Step 2: Use a urine-neutralizing spray on spots Use a urine-neutralizing spray to cover the spot and slow the decay. Sprays are available in pet supply or home improvement stores. Tip Look for products that contain a dye that keeps the grass alive and colors it a natural-looking green until it is revived. Step 3: Add topsoil or compost to encourage growth Flush the spot with water and cover the area with a thin layer of topsoil or compost to encourage new growth from the existing grass. Step 4: Reseed if grass is already dead Reseed the spot if the grass is already dead. Flush the area with water, add a layer of topsoil or compost, and reseed. Tip Use chicken wire to keep your dog away from the area while the seeds are growing. Step 5: Consider food additives to prevent staining Consider using food additives that neutralize your pet's urine and keep it from staining your grass. Tip Talk to your veterinarian to see if food additives would be appropriate for your dog. Ask them for recommendations of specific brands and talk about suitable dosages. Step 6: Train your dog to use one spot every time Train your dog to always go to the bathroom in the same spot. If you can't prevent lawn stains, at least you can keep the brown spots limited to one area. Step 7: Prevent stains by flushing area immediately Prevent future grass stains by immediately flushing the area with water after your pet goes. Did You Know? Female dogs are less likely to urine mark and more likely to squat, urinating all in one place, making them the primary culprits of lawn damage.
