As much as you love your dog, pet ownership has some downsides. They may eat a shoe on occasion or overturn the garbage, but dealing with the daily messes in the yard is unpleasant and time-consuming. But if you forget to clean for a week, it’s not only unsightly but can do severe damage to your lawn. Here are some ways a dog poop cleaning service can protect your property.
There’s nothing worse than stepping in dog poop. Trying to clean a mess off your shoe can derail an otherwise pleasant morning. It’s even worse if the victim is a guest who was trying to enjoy your yard.
While everyone wants to keep their home and property spic-and-span in case of unexpected visitors, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. Scooping the yard is one of the first things to fall by the wayside during a busy week. You’re trapped between hoping your guest doesn’t make a misstep or awkwardly warning them that the yard isn’t clean.
A dog poop cleaning service offers a third option. It gives you total confidence that your yard always looks spic and span without taking time out of your day to clean and scoop your property.
Dog poop is high in nitrogen, which is toxic for grass and other plants. Every dog’s diet (regardless of the type or brand of food) is high in protein, which creates a natural byproduct of nitrogen. When dog poop is left sitting on grass for days at a time, that nitrogen seeps into the soil in your yard, filling it with excess nitrogen.
While nitrogen is an important component of nutrient-rich soil, too much of it can burn the grass and saturate the ground beneath your lawn. The result is unsightly, dead patches of grass that can take weeks or months to recover fully.
With lots of snowfall during the winter months, it can be hard to keep up with poop scooping. Missed messes may sit in frozen snowbanks until the spring thaw. But even if they don’t cause problems for your home directly, they can impact the local water table.
When dog poop isn’t disposed of properly, harmful bacteria can get into the local water table. Excessive dog poop in stormwater provides nutrients to algae and weeds, damaging native populations of both plants and animals. By properly bagging and throwing away dog poop in your yard, you’re protecting the water quality of your community.
Even if you don’t let your dog into the front yard to do their business, your neighbors may be walking their dogs by your property and may not always bag the mess their dog leaves behind. If you have kids who regularly play on your street, they may accidentally step in poop someone else’s dog left behind.
You don’t have to waste your time checking the front and back yard for messes. A dog poop cleaning service will thoroughly inspect your entire property. They’ll ensure every inch of your yard is spic and span from your dog and others.
