Always Scoop the Poop Cumming, GA

Is your lawn a favorite bathroom for the neighborhood dogs? While you may consider dog poop an eyesore or a nuisance to dodge, it can also be a major health risk to your yard and your family. After you learn the facts about dog poop, you’ll be sure to remember your scooper or potty bags next time.

In 1991, EPA not only named dog waste as an environmental pollutant, but they put it in the same category as pesticides! Dog waste contains parasites that are dangerous to your plant life, your other pets and your children. In fact, just one gram of dog poop contains 23 million fecal bacteria!

Lawnmowers Are The Perfect Spreader
Most landscaping companies do not take on the responsibility of removing your dog poop piles before they service your lawn. This means that when fresh (or old) dog waste hits the mower blade, it can quickly spread to all areas of your grass. At this point, it’s nearly impossible to clean up. You become susceptible to the countless pollutants and parasites that are now living under your daughter’s bare feet as she does cartwheels across the grass or beside the tennis ball you are throwing for your dog in the backyard.

Other Modes of Travel
Even if you are diligent to pick up your poop before you mow the lawn, there is still a major risk that the fecal bacteria has already spread. In fact, this type of bacteria loves to travel through the air on insects and other pests. If no one is willing to pick them up, fecal bacteria can simply move about through the wind. Once they find a new home, they can settle deep within the soil and live another year or more!

What Is at Stake?
How serious are the parasites and bacteria that live and spread from dog feces? Possible conditions include parvovirus, tapeworms, E.Coli and salmonella to name a few. Some of these can cause serious illness in pets and humans, especially babies and pregnant women.

Ready to be a good dog scooper? We hope so. At Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, we like to educate dog owners about the dangers of not discarding dog waste right away. It is a simply and quick task that could save your lawn and your health.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
