Dog Urine
A further problem to your lawn could well be that “man’s best friend” is using the lawn as a toilet. Although not technically a pest, the urine from a female dog will cause the grass to turn brown in small circular patches. Why does this happen? Well, In effect the urine scorches the lawn much the same as applying too much fertiliser to an area of grass in very dry conditions. The urine should be heavily watered to try and dilute it. Other than that it might be best to keep your dog off the lawn as much as you can.
