Creating Flower Beds Where a Dog Previously Peed and Pooped?

Puppy in a flower bed.
The first step in this process is to retrain the dog to use a new spot. Make sure all solids are removed. You can add a bit of dish soap and water to the soil to help remove and dilute urine. Turn the soil to aerate. Time is your friend. This is a page about creating flower beds where a dog previously peed and pooped.

We have 0 landscaping at our home so we have been letting our female GSD pee and poop in one area. We are now meeting with landscapers to plant in the area where she does her business. What do we have to do to treat the soil and how long before we plant so we make sure they survive?

There will also be some new dirt trucked in, but I'm not sure how thick that layer will be. She has been in this area since November.

After 30 days, the soil will be good enough to plant in. Meanwhile, retrain her to use another area.

You can wait and for the time being, have her go elsewhere if possible.
