    I have an eight year old yellow lab....recently we moved from a house that was totally in a wooded area to one that has zoysia grass. When Boomer urinates, brown spots appear on the grass. I have tried Stay Green Bites and it seems to help somewhat....And also have read other suggestions for a fix for the malady.

    Would any of you have any suggestions to solving my problem?

    Thanks,
    Boo

    I feel your pain. We don't have the same grass so I can't say for sure what you should do but it may be similar. I don't believe you will ever completely solve this issue, but you may decrease the area.

    Some have taught their dogs to go in a less noticeable area.

    Diluting the urine is key. Some will run after their dog with a water can full of plain water and sprinkle where they pee, this will dilute the urine so it may not burn the grass. Encouraging your dog to drink more water will also dilute the urine.

    Where I live we have lotsa snow and cold. In the spring I dig out all the brown spots and put fresh dirt with some grass seed in. If you use the green mulch and grass seed mix it is hardly noticeable. Fresh grass grows quickly.

    Good luck!

    Another thought.... You could buy sod and patch the brown spots easily too. And water your lawn more often.

    Another thought . . . train your dog to go in a particular area.
