The Q&A Archives: Dog & Cat Repellent

Question: Hi, can you recommend way for dogs not to poop on my lawn? Any home products I can use?


Answer: There are a number of things you can try, beginning with speaking to the owners. (In many areas there are leash laws.) Some gardeners report success using commercially sold animal repellents on the lawn, or home-made garlic and garlic/pepper sprays. You might also consider a thorny hedge to keep them out of the area. Unfortunately, however, the most effective deterrent is a fence.
