Urgent Advice Please - Will bleach kill turf?

Posted: 23/12/2012 at 00:43

Thanks Welshonion, the question was really centred around the effect of chemicals on turf, everything within the kennel block is being done 'by the book' and according to best practice models. I have not posted here to ask for help with disease control, but with care for soil and turf. Apologies if this was not explicit in my post. I am not here to ask about dog health. The Council has that covered.

Thanks to everyone else who has replied, your kind advice is appreciated.

Thanks, we also need to be mindful of little paws that may come into contact with any chemicals. Thank you for the link Georg Faust - I hadn't seen it before, it looks extremely useful! S x

Thanks so much. Our volunteers have been amazing and we are doing daily deep cleans in the yard and car park area. We have launched a 'Bring a Bottle' campaign, and the response has been overwhelming, people have been turning up with bottles of bleach for the concreted parts. I'll get a request for Jeyes up on our facebook, and will mention how kind and helpful you've been on this forum. Really grateful, I would have hated to make a mistake. Susie x

I am a volunteer with Cardiff Dogs Home (local authority pound).  We have just had an outbreak of parvovirus. The virus has a high mortality rate and is spread through dog faeces. Household bleach is effective in killing the virus. We are currently clearing an area to build a sensory garden for our dogs, the land has been turned over and our next task is to put down top soil, then turf. Can we use bleach on the area before we put down top soil and turf? Any advice gratefully received. Thanks, Susie James
