If you're a dog owner, chances are good that you have a recurring problem every spring: a backyard dotted with bare patches where your beloved pooch has urinated.
Not to fear: Blogger Thea, of Time With Thea, struggles with the same conundrum thanks to her golden labrador retriever Duke - and she has found an easy and affordable solution. Here are Thea's three steps to ridding your lawn of "burn" spots:
1. Rake the patchy areas to remove as much dead grass as possible.
2. Apply a layer of extra-fine ground limestone. Water the area to help the limestone absorb, then let it sit for a week.
3. Cover the patches with top soil then sprinkle grass seeds over them. Gently water the newly seeded area with a garden hose, taking care not to wash seeds away. Continue watering daily (unless it rains, of course) for a few weeks.
