Apply PetiGreen1

It's easy - Apply PetiGreen with a Hose End Applicator

You simply apply PetiGreen to the area of your lawn that your dog uses including the dead spots. Use a hose end applicator designed for liquids.
PetiGreen is a concentrate that helps provide a better environment in the soil for increased organic activity and works over time to control and prevent dog urine from killing grass.

Water in After Application2

Water PetiGreen into the soil after applying

After you have applied PetiGreen water the lawn for a few minutes to wash PetiGreen into the soil. PetiGreen works in the soil to protect your lawn by improving the environment of the soil so that more microbes can survive and thrive.

Reseed Dead Spots After 3 Weeks3

Reseed the dead spots after 3 weeks

In 3 weeks you can typically reseed the dead spots. Use grass seed that is the same variety as your existing lawn. It may take a couple of weeks for the new seed to germinate.
If the seed fails to germinate try again in a couple of weeks. Chances are that there is still too much urea nitrogen in the soil and the microbes need more time to process it. Remember that even in the newly seeded areas you can get new pee spots until the population of microbes becomes large enough to prevent them which can take several months.



Repeat applications every 6 weeks. Reseed new spots until they no longer form.

Application Basics

Unlike other liquid fertilizers and amendments that give you a dilution amount or setting on a sprayer, you do not apply PetiGreen at ratio of ounces per gallon.  You apply PetiGreen on the basis of ounces per square feet, specifically the square feet of the area you are treating.  The water acts as a carrier to get PetiGreen out of the sprayer and into the soil.

Getting Deeper Into the Soil

Any additional water just helps work it deeper into the soil.  Many hose end applicators come with general instructions for applying other fertilizers.  Disregard the instructions that come with the sprayer when applying PetiGreen and use the PetiGreen instructions instead.

The video shows treating the entire lawn. If your dog does not use the whole lawn but prefers a section of your lawn then you can treat only the area your dog uses.

Before You Start

First, you will need a hose end applicator for applying liquids. Spray applicators for dissolving powders (like Miracle Gro) do not evenly distribute liquids.

Applicators for liquids are available at many of the big box hardware stores, many local hardware stores and many nurseries. You can also order online from internet retailers such as

Ortho Dial-N-Spray
Chameleon Sprayer

Application in Three Easy Steps



Measure Product

First determine the area you need to treat. Then simply reference the recommended application amount listed on the product label. All our recommended application amounts are stated in ounces of product per 100 sq. ft. of treatment area. You can use a measuring cup or use an applicator bottle that has measurements marked on it.

How to determine the square footage of your lawn

Get an approximate measurement of the area to be treated. An easy way to approximate the square footage is to pace off the yard. One walking step of an adult is generally considered to be approximately 3 feet. Pace off the length of the area and then the width of the area that you would like to amend. Most yards have strange curves and separate areas, we just need an estimate so pace to the furthest point. Multiplying the number of paces by 3 will give you total length and width in feet. Multiplying the width in feet times the length in feet will give you the total sq. footage. (L x W = total sq. ft.) This will be a rough approximation but adequate for our products.


Pour into Applicator

Pour Product Into Applicator Bottle

Use your hose end applicator bottle to measure the product or pour the measured amount of product from your measuring cup into your hose end applicator bottle. Only use a hose end sprayer designed for liquids. Applicators designed to dissolve powders will not provide an even application with our products. The liquid applicators apply the product at a constant rate and the bottle will empty as you apply it.

Pour enough water into the applicator to fill it

For most application we generally fill the remainder of the bottle to increase the volume enough to cover the measured area. The water is only to increase the volume enough to get the product evenly distributed over the area. If you are only applying a few ounces of product it can be hard to get the sprayer to siphon out that small an amount without adding water for volume. The instructions for many hose end sprayers will say not to add water at this point. This is one of the areas that we deviate from their instructions. Because we measure based on square footage instead of dilution the amount of water is not important.


Apply PetiGreen

Spray Onto Measured Area

Spray evenly over the measured area until applicator bottle is empty. Some hose end sprayers have an adjustable dial for dilution. Set the dial to 1 oz. and spray evenly over the area until the hose end bottle is empty. Keep an eye on the amount left in the bottle as you spray to make sure you are applying the product evenly. To get an idea of how fast to walk you can fill the applicator with water and see how fast it empties as you walk.

Turn on your sprinklers after applying the product

Spray area with water or turn sprinklers on for a few minutes to wash product into the soil. All of our products can be sprayed directly on lawns, on and around garden plants, on or around shrubs and trees or directly on bare soil. When applying to areas that are planted apply as close to the soil as possible. Our products will not harm the plants but if left on the leaves will not help the soil. Rinse it off of the plants with additional water. Our products can be applied over the top of ground cover or compost, but just like with planted area water long enough after applying to wash off ground cover or compost and into the soil.

How to Prevent Urine Spots in New Sod

Laying Sod

Apply Directly on Sod

You can apply PetiGreen directly on new sod. If you lay new sod and let your dog urinate on it you will get urine spots regardless of whether you have treated the underlying soil or not. Damage is likely to get much worse before it gets better. The roots of the new sod are close to the surface and will sustain urine damage until the root system establishes itself in the depth of the soil where protection occurs.

Divide and Conquer

We recommend dividing your lawn and laying sod only in one section of it. Block access to that section from your dog and continue using PetiGreen on it while it gets established. Then lay sod in the other section and block access to it from your dog and continue using PetiGreen on it while it gets established. This should help you save money and reduce frustration. If you already have new sod follow the instructions above but plan to repair some areas.

How Often Should I Use PetiGreen

The frequency of application may vary.

For most situations you will want to apply PetiGreen every 6 weeks.  Microbes have a life cycle of about 45 days and our goal is to sustain a healthy population that can process large amounts of urea.  This proactive routine guards against the urine that is assaulting your yard multiple times a day. Your soil will flourish and easily metabolize excess nitrogen when you follow the PetiGreen Program regularly.  Additionally, PetiGreen breaks down the salt from your dog’s urine.  For smaller lawns that a large dog or multiple dogs have access to, more frequent applications may be required.

Read more about how PetiGreen works.

To repair damaged grass

Whether the damage is mild or severe, it will take time to restore your lawn. The more severe the damage, the longer recovery will take. Following the normal application frequency along with reseeding will still yield good results.

Application Amount by Area in oz and ml

Do you want to accelerate the recovery of your lawn?

You may have read about the “3, 2, 1, Go! program” in some of our customer’s testimonials. This program was designed for those with severely damaged lawns who wanted to accelerate the restoration of their lawns.  The program was to apply 3 times the normal amount for the first application.  Three weeks later 2 times the normal amount was to be applied.  After another three weeks 1 application at the normal amount was to be applied.  Then Go to the normal schedule of applications every six weeks.

The Revised Program

That program has been revised.  If you want to accelerate the process you can apply PetiGreen every week for the first 6 weeks then move to the normal schedule.  It can accelerate the recovery.  For most people, even where the lawn is severe in damage, simply reseeding after the third week and then as new spots appear.  This gets and keeps the lawn looking pretty good on the journey to prevention.

For those interested in accelerating the process below are some suggestions based on the condition of your lawn.

Restore Severely Damaged Lawn

Yellow Grass Spots

You Can Apply PetiGreen Once a Week for the First 6 Weeks

It can take several months to repair damaged soil and get your lawn back to normal but more frequent applications in the beginning can help accelerate the process.  Applying PetiGreen more frequently in the beginning will help process the excess nitrogen.  It also breaks down salt that is in your soil.  Where lawns have been severely damaged by dog urine we recommend applying PetiGreen every weeks for the first 6 weeks. After that maintain the PetiGreen Program Schedule of applications every 6 weeks.  Don’t forget to reseed after 3 weeks.  Use the same type of grass seed that matches your lawn so you don’t have irregular grass where the spots are.

Mild to Moderately Damaged Lawns


You Can Apply PetiGreen Once a Week for the First 3 Weeks

Generally speaking the normal 6 week schedule works for most people and that is what we recommend for lawns with mild to moderate urine damage.  However, there can be a benefit applying PetiGreen every weeks for the first 3 weeks that can accelerate the recovery of your lawn.  Don’t forget to reseed after 3 weeks and be sure to use the same type of grass seed that matches your lawn so you don’t have irregular patches where the spots are.

How PetiGreen works

Here is How PetiGreen Works

Typically a lawn does not contain enough soil microbes to protect it against the salt and the excessive amount of nitrogen that can exist in dog urine. PetiGreen helps improve the environment of the soil. Over time it can support a large population of soil microbes that will thrive. When the population gets big enough it can process the excessive nitrogen from the dog urine fast enough that the grass is not damaged. It takes time to get the population to that size.

There are other products we have seen that feature microbes as the solution to the dog urine problem. Simply adding microbes does not create the conditions in the soil the microbes need for them to survive. You have to change the environment of the soil so they can not only survive but thrive.

When you apply PetiGreen soil microbes begin to increase in population.  They usually process enough nitrogen from the soil at the dead spots in just a few weeks.  This allows new seed to germinate and grow. Reseeding the spots can help improve the appearance of your lawn while the environment continues to improve and the microbial population continues to grow until it is finally large enough to prevent dog urine from killing your grass.

Safe when Used as Directed

PetiGreen is Safe for Kids and Pets when Used as Directed

Using PetiGreen is safe for pets and kids when it is applied as directed. Apply PetiGreen using a hose end applicator and then wash it into the soil after each application with your sprinklers. After you wash it safely into the soil your kids and pets can safely return to the lawn.

Application Temperature

PetiGreen can be Applied During Cool or Hot Temperatures

It can be advantageous to apply PetiGreen when temperatures cool off. For areas where there is hard ground freeze through the winter apply PetiGreen as late in the fall as possible and then again as early in the spring as possible.
In areas that cool off in the winter and may even have occasional frost apply PetiGreen when normal daytime temperatures are above 45° F. Although the grass may be dormant there can still be some roots activity and salt and nitrogen can still be a problem. Usually we don’t think of our lawns after temperatures drop and grass goes dormant. But as dog owners we should. The advantage of applying PetiGreen in lower temperatures is that the soil can stay moist longer without the water quickly evaporating from blistering heat of the day. Grass can be dormant while microbial activity continues to work to improve the environment of the soil. Applications during cooler weather will also help reduce salt damage that might otherwise accumulate on cooler winter days.
PetiGreen can be applied even in hot temperatures and will still help improve the soil. We recommend applying it during the cooler part of the day, typically mornings are best. Summer heat can stress grass even though biological activity increases and soil conditions improve. The first year you use PetiGreen, especially if you start in the heat of the summer, even though it may appear as if you are not getting much results PetiGreen can be working to improve the soil even in sweltering heat. In addition new grass seed may have a harder time germinating in the heat due to evaporation. As temperatures cool for fall the lawn becomes less stressed and the work the microbes have done in the heat of the summer should start to become apparent. In subsequent years the summer heat should not be as much of an issue.

You Will Get New Dead Spots for a While

You will get New Dead Spots for a While

After Applying PetiGreen the population of soil microbes starts to increase in population. The population takes time to expand.  Even though the population is growing it may not be large enough to stop the urine spots for some time. You will still get dead spots appearing in your lawn in some cases for several months. However, the microbes can increase to a large enough population to process enough of the excess nitrogen from the dead spot in a few weeks that new seed can germinate.

Pick-up the Poop

Keep the Poop Picked-up off of Your Lawn

Dog feces can add to the problem. We recommend that you keep it cleaned up to minimize its impact. There are dog waste removal services available in many areas.  They will do the task regularly for you for a fee.

Keep on Schedule

Continue Applying PetiGreen on Schedule

Your dog’s urine is in constant assault on the soil as it pees on the lawn multiple times a day. When you keep applying PetiGreen on schedule your are countering this assault. Make sure you apply PetiGreen every 6 weeks so you are continually working to improve and protect the soil. During the time it takes for the microbial population to build up new spots are likely to appear.  As they appear simply reseed them.

Keep Lawn Watered

Keep Your Lawn Adequately Watered

You should keep the lawn adequately watered so the grass gets a sufficient amount of water and there is enough moisture for the new grass seeds to germinate.
You should avoid too much water because it can hinder beneficial microbial activity and increase the chance of detrimental fungi.

PetiGreen can be mixed with ClayMend

PetiGreen and ClayMend can be Mixed Together

If you have hard clay soil you can mix PetiGreen and ClayMend together and apply them both at the same time.

Neutralize Dog Urine

Neutralize Dog Urine

The purpose and function of the urine from your dog is to eliminate toxins from your dog. These toxins will end up in your lawn.  PetiGreen works to repair their damaging effects.  These include excess nitrogen, salt, and any imbalances of soil pH from dog urine.


Medication may Affect Your Results

Some medications can be toxic to the grass and others toxic to soil microbes. You may get pee spots while your dog is on medication.

All Natural

PetiGreen is All Natural

The ingredients in PetiGreen are all natural consisting of naturally occurring ingredients including a proprietary blend of organic acids, organic carbon, pro-biotics and a little nitrogen and sulfur.

Continue to Reseed Dead Spots as Required

Continue to Reseed as Required

During this time you are likely to see new spots appear in your lawn so as they appear simply reseed them. You should not have to remove the old dead grass. Just scatter some seeds over the dead spots. The dead grass will actually shade the new seed.  This prevents it from drying out as quickly as it otherwise would.  This helps the seeds germinate.

Cut Fertilizer by at Least Half

Rejoice, You can Save Money on Fertilizer

Nitrogen fertilizer and dog urine don’t play well together. They can gang up on your lawn to make your dog urine problem worse. You can reduce the amount of fertilizer you apply.  By doing so you are not adding a lot more nitrogen to the nitrogen from the dog the urine. Additional nitrogen from fertilizer can make it more difficult to control dog urine spots. You should be able to cut your fertilizer applications in half or more.
If you do fertilize apply PetiGreen immediately.  This reduces the impact the fertilizer will have on the dog urine burn spots. Watch the lawn for the next few weeks after you apply fertilizer and see if you get more new spots. If so it indicates too much fertilizer is now in the soil.  So the next time you fertilize cut the amount you applied this time in half again. Continue with the PetiGreen Program to treat and reseed.
Mulching your grass clippings can also help reduce the amount of additional fertilizer you use. It can return up to 2 lbs. of nitrogen per 100 sq. ft. over the course of a year.  Since it is organic it doesn’t put immediate stress on your lawn.

Have Patience

Have Patience

Repairing your lawn takes time. Even though you are just seeing spots appear now it may just be the tip of the iceberg. The damage may be worse than it appears. Your spots might seem small but damage to your soil can range from mild to moderate. It can take from 2 to 6 months to get back your green beautiful lawn.
However the appearance of your lawn can often improve greatly by reseeding during this time. About 3 weeks after you start applying PetiGreen reseed the dead spots. The spots might start to fill in but you’ll still get new pee spots. Repeat this routine as the new pee spots appear and eventually the new spots should diminish and eventually disappear.

Balanced Diet with Water

Give Your Dog a Balanced Diet and Plenty of Water

Evaluate what you are feeding your dog. Dog foods high in grains and vegetables can make burn spots worse. And of course make sure your dog has plenty of water.

For Severely Damaged Lawns Gather Grass Clippings

For Severely Damaged Lawns Gather Your Grass Clippings

If your lawn is suffering from an excess of fertilizer to the point it has been severely damaged you may want to gather your grass clippings so the additional nitrogen in the clippings does not add to the problem. Eventually it will be beneficial to mulch your grass.  But until your lawn is growing well again we recommend that you gather the clippings.

Frequently Asked Questions


Will PetiGreen protect my new sod from dog urine spots?

PetiGreen is arguably the BEST soil amendment on the market for helping new lawn get established. It will help improve the underlying soil as well as release soil nutrients and encourage root growth.

With all these benefits, until the roots are established into the soil where they are protected from urine they are very susceptible to damage. PetiGreen will help quicken the root establishment process, but we advise trying to remove the dog from the new lawn if possible. Until the roots are well established you will see new urine spots.

Here is an article about Dog Urine and New Sod with more information that might be helpful.


Do I have to remove the dead grass when reseeding?

Generally you do not have to remove the dead grass when reseeding the dead spots.  Simply scatter grass seed in the dead spot and make sure it falls through the dead grass and makes contact with the soil.  The dead grass will actually shade the new seed reducing the possibility of damage from the sun.  If the dead grass is so dense that the seed does not drop through it to make contact with the soil you can fluff it up so the seed will drop through it.


Can I put PetiGreen on new sod?

Yes, even though it won’t be able to protect the new sod until the roots of the new sod gets established, PetiGreen can help new sod get established more quickly.


Will PetiGreen Benefit My Lawn Even If I Don’t Have Pets?

Even for people who don’t have pets PetiGreen is a great soil amendment for your lawn. We like to think of PetiGreen as an amendment for lawns that has the side effect of preventing pet urine spots over time. Whether there is a pet in the picture or not, the same benefit occurs in improving the health of your lawn by improving the environment in the soil so that beneficial microbes can flourish. This helps improve the efficiency of fertilizer so you can typically cut the amount of fertilizer you use in half.  In addition PetiGreen helps naturally aerate the soil. It will also help process excess nitrogen that may have built up over the years that negatively impacts the growth of your lawn and make that nitrogen more available to the lawn.


What type of Applicator should I use?

Use a hose-end sprayer or for smaller area you can use a watering can.


water-can generic-sprayer ortho-dial-and-spray


How do I apply PetiGreen?

Apply PetiGreen with a hose end applicator that is designed for liquids.  Unlike many fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, etc. PetiGreen does not rely in a ratio of product to water but instead is based on ounces of product per square feet of lawn regardless of how much water is used.  We are only using the additional water as a carrier to give you more time to get the product out of the applicator and applied evenly to the area.



Will fertilizer affect PetiGreen and the Dog Urine Spots in my lawn?

Adding fertilizer to a lawn with dog urine spots can further damage the lawn and will increase the time needed for PetiGreen to control the damaged spots.  If possible we recommend NOT adding additional fertilizer to areas the dog uses until the urine spots have stopped and then fertilize at a reduced rate if it is needed at all.

PetiGreen increases the soils ability to process nitrogen in pet urine which contains an excessive amount of nitrogen. By adding fertilizer it will increase the amount of nitrogen the microbes in the soil needs to process.  It is nitrogen overload that kills the lawn and causes the dog urine spots to form.

Lawns that have been heavily fertilizing over the years can also be high in nitrogen. These lawns tend to have more severe urine damage where the dogs go and it can take much, much longer to process all that extra nitrogen before the soil improves enough to protect against new spots.  It is best in areas like these to keep the dog off the area if possible, to reseed after applying PetiGreen and letting the new grass get well established.  These soils can take months before they come around.

When there is an excess of nitrogen added to the soil, even when there are no pets, nitrates can build up and diminish microbial activity which impacts lawn and plant growth.  By cutting back on nitrogen use, using it sparingly and only when needed, you can actually achieve a greener, healthier lawn.

If you have fertilized already apply PetiGreen as soon as possible so it can start processing the fertilizer and begin to reduce the nitrogen overload in the soil.

It takes quite a bit of time for soil microbes to build to a population large enough to prevent new urine spots but as this population is growing a lot of nitrogen can be processed so that new grass seed will grow.  You’ll still get new spots but this will help keep your lawn looking greener until the microbes can prevent the new spots altogether.


What are the ingredients in PetiGreen

PetiGreen is a liquid soil amendment designed to improve soil damaged by dog urine using a proprietary blend of naturally occurring organic acids, organic carbon, soil microbes with a little nitrogen and sulfur that work to keep the microbes dormant until PetiGreen is applied to the soil.


Should I apply PetiGreen before or after I apply grass seed?

Start using PetiGreen about 3 weeks before applying new grass seed.  If you have been using PetiGreen for more than 3 weeks and you get new pee spots you can apply grass seed as soon as the new pee spots appear.


Is PetiGreen environmentally friendly?

Not only is PetiGreen is environmentally friendly, it promotes the environment of the soil with true organic activity in the soil that helps in the reduction of fertilizer pollution and the conservation of water.

PetiGreen is made up of a proprietary blend of naturally occurring components that build the health and fertility of the soil. Healthy soil is more efficient at metabolizing dog urine.

Fertilizer pollution is an escalating problem in our world and by working with Mother Nature our products build the health and productivity of the soil naturally, we call it being “Powered By Mother Nature”. Products developed with mother natures own systems are beneficial to the environment as well as safe for your family and pets.


Should I start using PetiGreen before the cold winter weather or wait until spring?

PetiGreen should be applied as soon as possible regardless of the time of year, provided the ground is not frozen, so it can start building the microbes in the soil which is ultimately what protects your lawn against pet urine spots.  In areas where daytime temperatures are 45° F to 50° F or warmer during the winter it is best to use PetiGreen throughout the year since damage to roots can occur even when the grass is dormant.

In colder climates the microbial population will expand until the cold weather hits and then it will go dormant.  In the spring that expanded population will come out of dormancy and pick up right where it left off.  Then just continue with the program to improve the soil and expand the microbial population even more until your lawn is completely protected from new dog urine spots.


How does PetiGreen keep dog urine from killing my lawn?

PetiGreen improves the environment of the soil so a larger population of microbes than the soil can normally support can survive.  When the population of microbes reaches a large enough size they can process the excess nitrogen from the dog urine more rapidly than the nitrogen can kill the lawn.  It takes time to reach a population that will prevent dog urine spots in grass but as you are using PetiGreen and the population is growing it can become big enough in just a few weeks that it can process enough nitrogen from the grass that new seed will usually germinate and start fill in the burn spots.  Eventually the soil environment improves and the microbial population increases enough that the nitrogen can be processed before it has a chance to damage the grass.



Will PetiGreen harm my flowers or other plants?

PetiGreen is a unique blend of soil conditioning ingredients optimized to protect your lawn from dog urine spots, but it will also improve the health of all your plants including flowers, vegetables, shrubs and trees.

Even though PetiGreen will not harm your plants it works in the soil so if you spray it on your flowers, vegetables, shrubs, trees, etc. makes sure you rinse it off of the plants so it gets into the soil where it can go to work to improve the soil.


Can PetiGreen be used at a heavier than recommended application rate?

Yes, you can use up to 10 times the recommended amount of PetiGreen without damaging the lawn.

Application rates less the recommended rates will diminish the effectiveness of PetiGreen and are not recommended.


Should I put PetiGreen just on the pet urine spots or can I treat my entire lawn?

PetiGreen should be applied either to the whole lawn or to the area your dogs use not just the spots.  PetiGreen works to improve the soil too the point that it will support a population of microbes that can eventually prevent dog urine spots from forming.


What can I expect after applying PetiGreen to my lawn?

Most customers see improvement in their lawn growth within  2 – 4 months even though they will still be getting pee spots.  Over time you’ll notice a reduction in the size of new pee spots and eventually, typically around 4 – 6 months for many lawns and 6 – 12 months for severely damaged lawns, the new pee spots fade away.

Even though it takes time for the microbial population to increase large enough to prevent urine spots, they can usually process enough nitrogen from the pee spots in just a few weeks so that new grass seed will germinate.  This helps keep your lawn greener while the population grows to the size that it can prevent the dog urine spots from forming.

The PetiGreen Routine is an essential the tools that helps to eventually control and prevent dog urine from killing your lawn.  Following the PetiGreen Routine natural aeration is improved, organic carbon is built up, fertilizer and water efficiency improves and that results in an even healthier lawn over time.

We recommend reading our Getting Started page when starting to treat the dog urine spots in your lawn.


How often will I need to apply PetiGreen to protect my lawn from dog urine spots?

Applying PetiGreen every 6 weeks is adequate for most homeowners.  The dog keeps peeing on the lawn every day and it is important to keep on the 6 week schedule to build up protection and then to keep the lawn protected.  If damage to your lawn is severe and it is within your budget, you can apply PetiGreen every week for the first 6 weeks to help accelerate the recovery of those severely damaged lawns.




Will PetiGreen protect my grass from urine if I have more than one dog?

Yes, although you may need to apply PetiGreen more frequently.  It takes time before the microbes can prevent spots from forming but after a few months if you notice new spots are forming but are much smaller, you might adjust your schedule to every 5 weeks.
