Prevent Territory Marking on Your Property
“Help! I don’t want to cause problems with the neighbors, but their dogs are destroying my grass and bushes along the curb.”
It is a well known fact that dogs, particularly males, instinctively mark their territory (although females in heat will urinate along their path to signal a readiness to mate). They do this primarily by urinating on vertical objects like trees, bushes, mailboxes, and fire hydrants. Sometimes they will even leave feces deliberately as part of this territorial marking. Hopefully, your neighbors will promptly remove this offense from your yard. Yet you still do not appreciate your yard being the “landing zone,” naturally.
The real offender that your neighbors
do not seem to understand or notice is the urine
. It cannot be picked up and removed. It is salty and acidic. It is causing browning of your lawn and bushes. It may even be harming the lovely flower arrangement at the base of your mailbox. One solution is to douse the area with water to dilute the nitrogen
content of the urine, which will help to prevent the higher concentration in the urine from killing your vegetation. Of course, this would require active vigilance on your part.
