Our back yard was only grass when we first moved in. We created a beautiful space with multiple flowerbeds. We researched all of the flowers we purchased to make sure everything was non toxic for our 4 dogs. The flowers that were toxic, were placed in our front flowerbeds. The best of both Worlds.

We developed awful, patchy grass as a result of our dog having preferred locations to relieve himself on the lawn. After many attempts at various solutions and home remedies we discovered a product that was called “Yellow-B-Gone.” The dog loved the taste. Sprinkled it on his food and *poof* no more grass stains. Haven’t had to use it in some time as his chemistry has changed, but this may help with some of the challenges mentioned in the article.
