How To Keep Your Yard Clean Of Dog Waste

Fall yard cleaning means taking the time to make your yard look meticulous. But before you do anything, you must first be sure that your lawn is free of dog poop.

But here’s the thing about that, after you’ve picked up what’s been left behind and taken all of the steps for detailing your yard, you need to be sure to continue keeping your lawn free of feces.

We know dog poop is gross but there are so many other reasons why you must eliminate fecal matter after it’s been left behind. It can be responsible for spreading bacteria and contain parasites and germs that could pose a dangerous health hazard to you and your family or anyone else who might be spending time in your backyard.

Cleaning Up the Poop


The easiest thing to do perhaps is to simply walk outside and pick up what your dog leaves behind. How you do this is up to you and there are a number of options at your disposal…for disposal. Most of us use doggie bags. You turn them inside out, grab the feces, wrap it up, tie the bag, toss it. Easy.

But the easiest way to make sure you get all of the feces is to follow your pooch around the yard so you know where the poop is plopped. You might also train your pup to go in the same region of the lawn so the rest of the yard is left untouched.

Walking along with your dog is also a good idea for getting some exercise for yourself as well.

If you don’t want to use the bags, you can try various different pooper-scoopers or rakes that are on the market. These devices are designed to make it easier for you to keep the yard clean of dog waste.

Poop Cleaning Service

OK maybe you’re not up for getting out there and picking up after your pup. You have two choices, leave the poop out there (which isn’t really an option) or call DoodyCalls services for dog owners.

These services charge clients to come over and eliminate your dog’s waste. You can have them come over daily, weekly, you hire them based on the schedule you wish. Sometimes you’re too busy to get the job done yourself or you don’t feel like doing the work, that’s okay, you can hire someone else to do the work.

No matter how you decide to get the job done, the dog poop needs to go. So clean up your yard yourself or have someone else to do it. Just be sure the poop is gone and no one can step in it or play near it. Otherwise, you could be asking for health problems and a really dirty, smelly, unpleasant backyard.

There’s no reason to live with dog waste on your lawn. So don’t do it. Get out there and tidy up. You, your family, your guests, anyone who walks through your yard will be so very glad you did.
