Keep the dog – lose the spots
Got pets? Gardeners who do are finding a new solution to an a age-old problem in SpotGone!, an Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI)-listed organic product that turns those yellow, burned-looking patches where her dog does his “business” into lush, green grass again. Just shake the pellets on pet urine spots, high-traffic areas or lawn damage from de-icers. Look for SpotGone! at www.natraturf.com.
