  • Grass seed any kind that is natural will work best. If it has natural cow crap,horse crap compost in it then you will have a beauitful yard with in a few weeks of putting the seed out. Trick is lay seed out right before a good hard rain.

  • ^^ not true
    manure is often filled with weed seeds.
    the most cost and time effective fertilizer for grass is amonium nitrate.
    go to your local hardware store or co op, or feed store and ask for a 50lb bag for maybe an acre and spread very thinly with a drop or round spreader. spreading thinly and evenly is the most important thing with AN. You may be asked to provide I.D. with the purchase of it so be ready.
    This won't prevent the dead spots from female dog urine, but if you sprinkle a tiny bit on the dead spots when they occur it should green back up in a few days. GL!!

  • Only way to grow grass in the dead spots where the dogs are peeing....keep the dogs out of your yard .... and water it where they pee to neutralize it. The new grass will just keep dying.
