Keeping It Green -- Even at the White House

Keeping It Green -- Even at the White House
May 10, 2013 by Sandy Robins

I have just launched a new radio show pet segment called House Pets which is part of the very popular The House Radio Show that covers all topics to do with both the home and garden – and now pets.

Pets are such an integral part of the home and garden that’s why I am so excited about joining this show. While plotting and planning segment ideas as we move into summer, it struck me that it also means that our dogs will be spending more time outdoors in the garden. 

Unfortunately there is nothing more unsightly on a beautifully manicured lawn than yellow pee spots! There’s the idea that putting an empty plastic bottle on the lawn keeps repeat pee offenders away. But who wants the lawn littered with bottles? I wonder what they do at the White House to keep the lawn luscious?

Fortunately, there are lots of products to apply to a lawn along with additive to the water bowl, which will help tackle the problem from the offender’s perspective. Recently I came across an interesting new product called Dog Rocks. It’s a volcanic rock that absorbs and retains some of the impurities in the water that turn the grass brown.

I am always amazed that there are still unique little pockets on this earth that are unique to particular rocks and minerals. Take the beautiful gemstone Tanzanite – its only mined is a small area in Tanzania and available nowhere else on the planet. And the same goes for the volcanic dog rock.  It’s found in only one spot in Australia!

I love the fact that it’s an all-natural product. It doesn’t change the Ph balance of the dog pee but acts as a water purifying agent and the results  are to be seen in the appearance of the lawn. 

Do let me know if you try and send before and after photographs of your lawn – and don't forget to include your pooch too.

And please listen in on Saturdays around 8.30 am PST and 11.30 am EST
