Having 3 dogs and 3 goats outside I have had my share of yellow burn spots on my lawn. Depending on your dog or cat he/she can get out of hand at times. They seem to choose a different place to do their thing each time. I have not come up with an Hunker article on how to stop them from doing that!! Here I will tell you how to use common items around your home to repair their damage (yellow burn spots). This is what I use to fix the problem without having to purchase something that is going to cost a lot of money. Everyday items in your home will work just fine.
To repair the yellow burn spots that my animals cause on my lawn by urine, I dissolve one cup Arm & Hammer Baking Soda in a one gallon watering can or jug. I then saturate the urine spots ever three days. the baking soda neutralizes the acidity of the urine and deodorizes the area of the lawn, preventing my dogs from recognizing the spot and doing the same thing again.
To kill fungis that caused the brown patch (or brown or yellow rings or patches in my yard), I mixed one tablespoon of Arm & Hammer baking Soda, one tablespoon Wesson Corn Oil, and one gallon of water. I then Sprayed a light mist of this solution on my lawn. I aerated the lawn and added one-half incle of compost. Compost that I use contains microbe trichoderma, which feeds on the fungis.
Mix one cup Budweiser, one cup Epsom Salt, one cup Ivory Dishwashing Liquid, and one cup Listerine in a one-quart jar. I spray this on up to 2,500 Square feet of my lawn with a hot-attached sprayer in May and again in late June. It works wonders.
