Of course, use limes to green up the lawn makes sense, something green to turn something green. wink

I would agree that it looks like a burn from dog urine. I found the best way to fix that is to use gypsum. Apply it like lime to the spot and water heavily. Then you can reseed the spot. It also works for salt damage. I have a rental home in St Paul which is on a busy corner. The area between the street and sidewalk get a heavy dose of salt in the winter and dogs the rest of the year. I put down a preventative gypsum treatment every fall works like a charm. (I'm an agronomist/soil scientist so am almost reputable on stuff like this)

Questions like,

- What is the best way to pick up BBs on my lawn?
- What kind of grass does Buffy the Vampire Slayer have?
- Do pots of grass make good bass traps in a square room?

Well, it has only been about 36 hours but the yellow patch I had in the backyard (about 3' squared) is starting to green up a bit after putting some more fertilizer on it. I need to cut it tonight but I am going to cut it about 3/4" higher than I normally do, and see what that does after a month or so. I hate waiting for the little seeded areas to start coming up, but I am watering them daily so we'll see how that goes also.

Fire away, Mark, but be warned having gone from scientist to farmer in the past few years I generate a Word DOC or 2 of questions for myself on a daily basis. I'm trying to figure out how to farm organically and somehow make it profitable. Daunting task.

Thats an understatement. Farming the regular way is a daunting task. Enough so that I walked away in my 20s and never looked back.

On the more serious side. My lawn always sucks. Every year it gets thinner and the snowkill gets larger and takes longer to heal. I blame the constant salt spray. It seems to be stronger than the annual liming can handle.

We also have to research every shrub and flow er we plant unless it's on the protected side of the house to make sure it handles salt OK. What's really funny are the pine and spruce trees that look wonderful on one side as you come down the driveway and then when you get on the salted side, you realize it's only half a tree. The salty side has burnt away.

I'm actually hoping that the thyme that covers my neighbors yard eventually works it's way over and completely invades my lawn. It's seems to do great in the salt, doesn't need cutting as often, is soft to walk on if kept short and best of all it smells great when you walk on it.
