Do you go out in the rain with her? If not then you need to. I would also put pooping on command. When I take Rafi out I tell him to go poop and I stand out there with him until he goes. I give him a command to go and then after he goes I praise him and usually reward him by tossing his toy.

Please don't show her the poop and yell at her. That doesn't help at all. In fact it can be very confusing to a dog and cause them to be afraid of you (as in: why is that crazy person yelling at me?).

Edited to add: I just read your clarification about the wet grass. Same thing though--go out with her. Take her for a walk when the grass is wet, play in the wet grass, give her treats in the wet grass! Make it fun, fun, fun. Pretty soon she'll never even notice.
