Rabbits and lawns

Discussion in 'Home Repair' started by Louis McEniry, Sep 27, 2004.

  1. Hello Everyone,

    I have been seening round brown spots in my lawn, approximately the size of
    frizbees. On these spots there is large amounts of rabbit droppings.

    I am wondering if anyone knows if rabbits can cause damage to the grass
    where they do their business?

    Thanks!

    Louis

    maybe somebody's leaving Frisbee's lying around dehydrating rabbit foots.

    wish I had just one real lucky rabbit foot.

    Rabbit pee might kill grass, over time, but droppings likely would not. They
    are probably pissing in the same spots you see droppings. I know female
    dogs will kill grass that way, by repeated visits to the same spot. So what
    do you want us to do?

  5. Thanks for the comments!

    I suspected that is what it is Roger, but still hard to imagine that volume
    and acidity could do that damage.

    I am not really sure what to do myself.!

    I started watering like crazy to see if I can get any correction. I would
    hate to get rid of the rabbits as they make great lawn ornaments and my dog
    loves to play with them.

    Thanks again

    Louis

    Perhaps, but more likely make the grass greener from the extra
    nitrogen. Brown spots may be insect or fungus damage.
