For most homeowners, pets (particularly dogs) are the most frequent cause of spot in the lawn. However, concentrated urine from wildlife such as foxes, deer, and geese can discolor, injure, or severely damage turf. A dead, brown ?crater? surrounded by
a dark green turf ring characterizes classic urine damage in lawns. If you have no dogs but you do have deer frequenting your landscape, their urine can cause problems with your lawn.
