I'm going to assume they have no idea that the odor is offensive. Either becasue they can't smell it, or because they never spend any time in that side yard, or in an open-windowed room that faces the side yard. I'm also going to assume that they have the dog go there so they can keep the rest of the yard poop-free for the kids, so I don't think they'll want to widen the poop zone for sake of diffusion. So the solution lies in doing something with the side yard.
My Yard Smells Like Dog Poop and Urine

I would say something nicely to them. Along the lines of elektra's neighbours. Tell them that it's now getting warmer and the smell from the dog poop is wafting over your yard. And ask if they could clean it up.

Yes, poop happens...but it doesn't have to cause a smell that makes people plug their nose and head for the hills. Besides, who wants to spend time in the yard when it smells like poop?

eliminates the smell of dog poop and urine smell in the yard immediately by working at the microbial level. Simply sprinkle all natural DooKashi on the dog waste area in the yard (or on carpet) and reduce disease-producing microbes found in dog poop. We like to sit out on the patio but on some days you can really smell the dog poop smell. I try to be very good at getting all the poop picked up but some ultimately remains on the grass. I've tried hosing it down every time but I fear that is just spreading it out. I thought the smell was coming from the container, but it's not, it's from the actual yard.I’ve had various types of dogs around me for most of my life. Growing up we had Labradors, cocker spaniels, German shepherds, and mini schnauzers to name some. No matter what the size or breed of dog, there has always been one inevitable constant—poop. Oh yeah, lots of it. Brown poop, green poop, runny poop, and even some very pretty poop thanks to those dogs who liked to chew things up and swallow the little bits. Because our family was never real big on walking the dogs, our front yard had a tendency to become a minefield of smelly brown bombs. And guess whose job it was to go around and clean it? I can’t take all the credit as I had brothers who were thrown into the party as well, but I think you get the picture. Of all the chores that we had, going on “poop patrol” was the one our dad derived the most pleasure out of making us do. The guy just loved to stand above us on the deck, laugh maniacally, and point out all the little piles that we had missed.In fact, dog poop is said to be the number one food source for rats in developed areas. Although dog poop contains a lot of toxins and infectious bacteria that can make humans very ill, it also contains fats, proteins, carbohydrates, and minerals that can be ingested safely by certain animals, including rats. So if they smell it in your yard, that’s where they are headed.For those of us who have multiple pets, keeping our yard clean can be a big issue, especially in the heat of summer. Hot poop starts to smell quickly and attracts lots of flies. No one wants a stinky or fly-infested yard, so I thought I’d pass along the tips and techniques I use to keep my yard clean.Keeping my yard poop-free each and every day is super important. I use a small plastic bathroom-sized trash can lined with a plastic grocery bag and a to keep poop out of my yard. I scoop once or twice a day depending on how many dogs are at my house. I prefer to scoop after doggy breakfast and dinner, right after everyone has gone outside to do their business.If your dog rolls around in his own feces, immediately clean up after him in the yard. When you’re out walking your dog, keep him on a short leash to prevent him from rolling around in another dog's poop or other smelly things you both might encounter. To discourage and ultimately stop him from rolling around in offensively odorous things, you could try to pair an unpleasant experience with his action. This can take the form of squirting him with a water bottle or using a citronella spray collar that can be operated via remote control (dogs absolutely hate the smell of citronella). If you use this method, make sure you squirt him as soon as he starts rolling.
