yup, if you pull it out, it will have a smell to it. Thats an easy way to tell. The other thing...look where the burn spots are. Dogs usually go on the edge. If it was soemthing else, I would think it would makes its way more into the yard.

Yeah I have a dog. i know about p!ss spots. What you would smell is ammonia but I cant imagine that sticking around too long if it rains or get watered on a regular basis.

female dogs when they squat have a worse burning effect. Larger dogs also have the same effect. I have 2 100lb weimaraners, 1 squats and leaves the worst burning spots. Its not so much the ammonia causing it, its the acid level in the pee. If you have multiple dogs walking by that spot, which looks like a corner lot, the chances are high its from the dogs marking territory. You can put down lime to counter act with the acidic pee, that helps a little.

Don't get me wrong though, it could be something else. But with the location of it, and what it looks like, I'm 95% certain its from dogs.

You are absolutely right, kinda. They have a small dog that uses the bathroom but only on the rear lawn, not the front.

LOL I can just see the talk of the town now, the guy smelling grass for piss lol I guess I will never know unless I try it to be for sure though. As far as rain, we have had none in a long time, the sprinklers however run daily, I wander if its not getting over watered? hmmmm. I just went and cut it yesterday afternoon and about puked when I pulled up, The house next store had sod installed, the day was 108F and it was never watered, it is a foreclosure and the bank hired a person to do it, in the 3rd picture you can see the dead sod and weeds growing through it. This person has made a few comments about the annoying weeds in the lawn WELL!!!! When I arrived yesterday I saw that someone had mowed the weeds on the dead sod next store and clearly did it with a side discharge and no bag as they through the weeds all over her lawn and just left them there. It turned out not being a big deal because my mower picked up and bagged the dead weeds but how tacky is that for a property maintenance person to do such a thing? I guess if there is any silver lining I will probably be getting that account as soon as someone with the bank sees the yard lol

Another thought I had is I read about how edgers, trimmers exc exc can knock pop up sprinklers out of alignment so maybe this has happened and the dead parts are simply just getting no water. I want to show up one day "not un announced" and view how they are working to be sure but is there a way to tell if they are pointed the correct way just by looking at them with the system off? Can I maybe pop them up with a screw driver and tell which way they are facing?

Thanks for all the help, I have absolutely no experience with this kind of thing, normally homes that have systems installed just work and I never had had to play with them or figure it out, I plan on installing one at my house in the next few weeks so I can get some experience in working on them.

Not only that but I am getting tired of watering my yard by hand lol.
