Yellow spots on turfgrass, as seen in this photo, are caused by the deposition of high concentrations of nitrogen and salts contained in urine, generally to a confined area of the lawn. This will commonly occur during the winter when small dogs have limited access to the outdoors and the turf is not actively growing to help breakdown these concentrations. When spring comes, we recommend raking these areas, watering them thoroughly, and overseeding–if needed.
