I'm new to this forum, so I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong place. After doing some research on this site, I feel like I have "diagnosed" my soil problem.
We rent our place, and on our patio, we have a section where they have laid dirt and then put small river rocks over it. There has been a foul oder which smells like it is getting worse. It smells like a combination of dog poop and moisture.
I called our landlord and they sent out someone who turned a couple of the rocks, but that did not seem to make a difference. I'm wondering if there are any tips to get rid of the smell? The only thing that I have found so far is that the soil needs to be turned, but that is hard to do since there are river rocks on top. Also, is there a way of preventing this from happening again? The area doesn't get much sun, but I'm concerned when it starts to rain that it will be out of control again!
Thanks so much!
