How-to: minimize dog tracks in your lawn

We get it—you love your furry friend, but hate the dead spots he leaves in your yard. Follow these tips to keep your grass looking great, even under the stress of your dog.

1) A healthy lawn will minimize damage caused by dogs or other stressors, like drought. Be sure you’re using the proper mowing, fertilization, irrigation, thatch and pest control techniques for your lawn.

2) Some grasses are more tolerant than others to wear-and-tear. Bermuda grass and zoysia are great warm-season options, while Kentucky bluegrass is a great cool-season option.

3) Restrict your dog to a run. This will limit the amount yard that can get torn up at one time. Be sure to move the run to different areas to allow the yard to recover.
