    Hi guys,

    I pulled my paving slabs up in the garden as I wanted to lay turf, under the slabs I was told was Dolomite so I bought 2 tone of top soil and then laid the new turf on top. It’s been around 4-5 month and when the dog urinates on the turf it kills it pretty fast and when I had the family round we played on the grass for maybe 1hr yet my grass has gone all flat and is turning yellow where we were playing?

    Any ideas what this could be? I don’t have a clue.

    thanks

    Its summer, the grass is under stress, dog pee always kill grass in summer, and if you get lots of people walking on one area the grass gets squashed and goes brown.

    Dog pee always kills grass in summer, in winter the rain and wet soil dilutes it.
    Follow the dog round with a bucket of water. :biggrin:
