Treating the Lawn for Dog Parasites

I've been reading that you can treat your yard with bleach and lime alternately to help control the dogs becoming reinfected by certain worms and other parasites. What I can't seem to find are the measurements that are effective for killing the parasite and not the lawn. Does anyone know the proper measurements?

We worm our dogs on a regular basis and do what we can to keep the waste picked up, but living in the South where it is hot and humid most of the year, we need all the help we can get.

If you have one of those Miracle Grow sprayers that attach to the hose, you can fill that with bleach, then attach your hose, and spray the yard. Do an even sweep back and forth. Don't over saturate one piece. keep an even, steady sweeping motion as you walk backwards. We had to do this when one of our dogs got parvo. The other 2 did NOT get parvo. So it worked. We had about 1/4 acre that we had to do this too. And one BIG bottle of bleach worked for that whole yard.
