Change pooping area into garden

Asked March 10, 2013, 8:22 PM EDT

We are moving into a new home this April. The previous owners have been using the sunniest part of the yard as a pooping area for their cat and two dogs. How do we make this area safe to use as a vegetable garden?

I was not able to find out exactly how long it will be before the area is safe as a vegetable garden - one reference said "many months to many years depending on soil conditions." For more information visit:
