The Dog and the Perfect Lawn

Can You Have a Perfect Lawn and Own a Dog at the Same Time?

Dogs are great. We love our dogs yet a downside to having a dog can be ugly, brown spots in our lawn.

Since most dog diets are high in protein, there will always be high levels of Nitrogen in their system. If your dog is relieving itself on your lawn, they will increase the Nitrogen levels of your lawn. Too much Nitrogen kills our lawns and creates the brown spots.


Here are a few tips for keeping your lawn looking healthy and green and singing a happy tune.

  • Water the lawn area immediately after the dog has done its business to help dilute the Nitrogen. Run the hose for about 10 seconds over the spot will help dilute the Nitrogen. Also, if you encourage your dog to drink more water, it will dilute the Nitrogen as well. But having them drink more water will increase your dog needs to pee.
  • Build an area for the dog to use the bathroom outside, using gravel, mulched, or artificial turf. Train them to go there instead of the grass.

  • Having the right kind of grass may also reduce these brown spots from showing up. Fescue and Rye-grass are the most resistant to Nitrogen due to the genetic makeup of the roots. Bermuda and Kentucky Bluegrass do need nitrogen to thrive but are very sensitive to fertilizer.
  • Dressing the lawn with less fertilizer will reduce the chances of brown spots. The combination of fertilizer and your dogs business could be too much Nitrogen for the lawn.

Building the dog a designated business area is the only effective option for 100%success. The other options above are a few more that can help.

We all love our lawns and our pets and we can have both.

Save Big Money on Lawn Care

professional lawn careMow Your Lawn or Pay For A Lawn Service?

Are you saving money by doing routine lawn care yourself?

Ever wondered how long you spend mowing the lawn that could have been spent doing something else?

Do you know the dangers associated with lawn care?

Is spending your time performing your own lawn care what you really want to spend your time on?

Researchers found on average 1248 days (roughly 3.5 years) of a person’s life is spent performing lawn care. That is a huge amount of time.

By factoring in the time it takes to mow, the cost of the equipment, the cost of maintaining the equipment, and the potential risks associated with mowing, some would argue that it’s actually less expensive to hire a professional company, like Complete Landscaping and Design to care for your lawn.

Below are some reasons you may want to consider hiring Complete Landscaping and Design to help you with your landscaping needs.

  • Save Money— $1,500 Riding Lawn Mower, $150 for a Blower, and $100 for a weed eater, mowing an average of 25 times per year will cost the homeowner $70 per cut in the first year. ($1750/25=$70).
  • Create more Free Time— Is there something else you could be doing? Is spending roughly 29,952 hours of your life mowing the lawn what you want to spend your time on?

Would you rather spend time with the family hiking, fishing or enjoying your favorite pastime a little more.

How much money is your time worth? Taking an average salary of $50k/year you could save well over $100k over a lifetime. What could you do with this extra money?

 

Lawn Safety Sign

  • Stay safe —According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 80,000 people are taken to the emergency room every year due to lawn related injuries.

Lawn equipment is some of the most dangerous items in any household. Why not leave these risks to the professionals?

  • Admire the Professionalism—Most lawn Professionals have years of experience and an eye for making lawns look great each and every time. Complete Landscaping and Design Professionals have decades of experience in the landscaping industry. Let us help you take pride in your well maintained lawns.

By uncovering the true costs of mowing the lawn why not let the Complete Landscaping and Design Professionals handle this task for you?

Like the Rolling Stones song says, “Time is on my side;” and with Complete Landscaping and Design, “Yes it is!”
