How to clean dog poop that's on little stones?

So, we've got some little stones laid down in an area of the yard where grass doesn't grow.

Naturally, there's now dog poop on the stones.

Poop-scooping isn't a great idea, because everything sticks together, you see. I don't want to throw the stones away.

What about blasting everything with a hose? Poop breaks apart, falls between stones, um...is that a good idea?

Have your neighbors dog come over to do the clean up.

Do you mean little stones like gravel spread around, or little stones like paving stones but small ones?

pea gravel or small river stones 1-2"?Wash with power hose unless you want to sit and pick out each piece of sprayed poop.

Little like pea gravel, or little like 1.5" river rock?

Usually I do one of two things.

1) give it a day to dry out, it will unstick from the stones.
2) hose down what sticks to the stones. Shouldn't be much of a problem smell wise if that's your concern.

Every once in a while, I get enzymatic stuff from the tack store. Comes in a half gallon sized jug that's diluted 1:8 with water. Dump that on the area every couple of days. It'll take care of any smell that lingers. Also works on dog pee smells. Don't get Nature's Miracle. I love the stuff but it's expensive. Better suited for indoor applications.

Lastly, why don't you want to throw the stones away? A ton of river rock costs $30-40. It would take you years and years before you got to the point where you'd have to start looking in to replacing them.

At the doggy park near here, which has pea gravel paths, they pick it up and then hose what's left behind. If you are talking about a dog who has eaten something he shouldn't have and is experiencing digestive discomfort then all bets are off--just get out the hose.

Throw dirt over it and wait for it to return to Mother Earth. Just don't walk on the stones for a few years.

Use an enzyme cleaner to dissolve the organic matter. We had a dead rat in the garage behind a wall where we couldn't reach without major demolition-this stuff worked for us:

(I am not connected with the product, the companies, or the site above.)

This approach gets rid of the smell and matter with no disease hazard. I would saturate the area with the Bacazap, put plywood over it for a few days to keep out other animals and kids, then use the sniff test to tell when your gravel is ready for daylight again.

A small fence to discourage the dog from going (both uses of the word) there?

teach the pooch to poop only on the lawn ?


(I wish I hadn't - our darned pooch will decide to trot home from a quarter mile down the trail in the woods to 'do her business' on the lawn.) Has to be green grass, won't 'go' in the gardens on the mulch, either.

Put a 1/4" screen over the top of a bucket and use a thin stream nozzle on a hose to break up the droppings so they wash through.

The long-term solution to this problem is the same as it is for so many other problems in mens' lives:

Get bigger stones. smiling smiley



It is what it is.

For such a question, this thread gave me a wealth of alternatives and chuckles.

Thanks, all!

Forget the power washer. Drink a six-pack and let nature do the rest.
