If you are a proud owner of a dog, then you very well know that all time of fun with your dog comes with great responsibility. Naturally this means that you always have to feed your dog on time, making sure it’s healthy, happy and thriving and not to mention the dog waste clean-up responsibilities that come hand in hand. Poop clean up is the least favorite part of all dog owners and no, this topic is not open for debate. So many people do what’s most convenient for them – they leave all that dog waste in their lawn or backyard. After all, like many out there believe, dog poop and pee has nitrogen, a fertilizer that the plants in your lawn need to grow and stay healthy. So what’s the problem, you ask?
Well the problem is that even though you may have already justified to yourself that you’re doing a good thing by leaving all that waste in the garden for the sake of your plants, you are actually destroying the lawn. To understand why this happens, you need to know that the diets that dogs consume is very high in protein and therefore their excretions are very acidic. Now even though it is true that plants need nitrogen for healthy growth, dog waste has it a very large amount. Too much nitrogen in large quantities actually burns off grass and creates bald patches. Urine is especially harmful because it comes in a concentrated form directly on the land. However dog waste is a little less harmful because it takes time to break down but it can make things equally bad and become equally harmful if it is left unattended and accumulates overtime. Not only this, but dog waste that sits on your grass prevents it from breathing and stops it oxygen.
All these problems can be easily fixed and from our experience in many cases, the grass grows back in just a week. This can also be prevented by promptly removing your dog’s waste every week. If you are in Glendale or Peoria, you can use Arrowhead Pooper Scoopers to easily take care of this problem and have the dog waste in the backyard removed according to a set schedule so you can focus on the more important tasks in life.
Apart from this dog waste has dangerous bacteria and pathogens. This means that it is not fit to use it as a fertilizer or compost on edible plants that may be consumed by humans. This means that you have to be careful that the dog poop stays away from vegetable gardens or at home plantations.
