How Can I Minimize, or Eliminate the Spots my Pets Leave on my Lawn?

Hello, I'm Jesse, and I'm a category manager with North 40 Outfitters, and today we're gonna answer a question about how to minimize and maybe even eliminate the spots that pets leave on your lawn. We reached out to our friends at DLF Pickseed to get their best recommendations to resolve this issues.


One of the most important things you can do is try to keep your pets from using the same traffic pattern, so that they are distributed evenly throughout your lawn, gives you the best chance to stay healthy. When your pets do urinate in certain areas, try to dilute that area as best you can with water, and add seed to those areas that do become thin over time.


The Best Time to Add Seed & Dilute the Issue

The best time to add seed will be either the fall or the spring. However, a healthy and a vigorously growing lawn will withstand the traffic and the normal pet use. There are also a number of different products that can help dilute this issue and resolve it. Many of those are offered at North 40 Outfitters.


All right, everybody, thanks for watching this video. If you have any more questions about lawn care, be sure to check us out at, or any one of our retail locations.
