Dog feces can transmit harmful organisms like roundworm to humans.
Diseases and Parasites
Urine can deliver too much nitrogen to grass, causing brown patchy spots.
Nitrogen Burn Spots
No one wants to play or relax in a yard littered with pet waste.
As long as feces is promptly picked up, it won’t harm grass or plants.
Minimal Impact if Removed
Responsibly composted poop provides organic nutrient enrichment to soils and plants.
Hardscapes like pea gravel paths and robust plantings handle urine better.
Use Dog-Friendly Landscaping
Teach dogs commands like “go potty” and “leave it” to curb random waste deposits.
