Delivered to Your Doorstep
Nothing is more convenient than Fresh Patch. When Fresh Patch arrives on your doorstep, simply remove the lid and your patch is ready to use.
FRESH PATCH is a stylish R-E-A-L GRASS potty box that is fully disposable. The special hydroponically-grown grass is light-weight, long-lasting, and dirt-free. The complex root structure absorbs urine and odors. The wonderful grass scent naturally attracts dogs--unlike plastic potties and diaper-like pee pads that smell bad, turn dogs off, and are disgusting too. With no reusable parts to clean or replace, disposal is EASY. This dog-friendly, people-friendly, Eco-friendly potty can be used anywhere, any time. Ideal for apartment dwelling, busy schedules, and avoidance of early-day, late-night, or bad-weather dog-walks. Now, your dog can get relief when needed, not on a pre-set schedule. Our 16"x24" potty is nice-and-roomy for dogs up to 25 lbs. and easy to discard. Other potties are too bulky and heavy for most dog owners to manage. For larger dogs, FRESH PATCH units can be joined together. For more information and training tips, check out freshpatch.com! Fresh Patch ships on Mondays and Thursdays. We ship from CA via FedEx, and transit time can take 2-5 days, depending on destination. Holidays will affect shipping times, and uncontrollable weather or shipping conditions can occasionally cause some delays.

We pride ourselves on customer service, and we will strive to give you timely delivery and assist you in any other way we can.

IngredientsHydroponic grass is long lasting and light weight. It is also great-smelling, dirt-free, and super-absorbent for urine and odors. This is not your Grand-dad's grass !!! The fully disposable, sturdy container is made leak-resistant during the manufacturing process, and keeps grass fresh during shipment.
DirectionsRemove the lid and place Fresh Patch where you want your pet to "go."

What I ended up doing was installing a balcony pet door (Ideal Pet Products) and ordering these hydroponic grass products (Well, originally, I had him fenced in in the kitchen with a box, and he would still miss the box sometimes; now, he is very clear that the balcony is the place to go because there is a distinct boundary). It took him a while to fully "get it", and to this day, he still prefers to do his business out front on leash, but I do not worry about him when I go out or when I'm away at work anymore. I watch him on my iPhone (Cloud baby monitor app), and he is doing what he's supposed to be now. I have a setup where his bedding area is enclosed by a Regalo playyard fence/baby gate in an arc shape around the pet door, and he can have 24 hr access to his grass, too, whenever he needs to go.
I have now tried both Fresh Patch and DoggieLawn, and can compare them side by side. In the photos, FreshPatch is the slightly smaller box in the front, and DoggieLawn is in the back (keep in mind, I stagger when I order them, so that FreshPatch is a week older). (EDIT: Not sure if Prime is available anymore on either, so taking this out of the review). The DoggieLawn wasn't bad on shipping either, considering it is a live product, but it is not for those who need something right away... took just over a week (earlier than its estimate). The quality of both appears to be comparable; the grass I got with DL appears to be a different variety (slightly coarser, still robust; the dog seems to have no preference aside from whatever is fresher), but both seem to last about the same amt of time (roughly 2 weeks, depending on use). I highly recommend that you spritz your pieces down with water at least once a day, to keep them live longer. The hydroponic mats they grow the grass on appear identical; both are clean and soil-free, similar to that Cocotek mat type of substrate. The main difference is that the DL is *slightly* larger, dimension-wise; they claim 33% (see description). For those who complain that the price is so much higher than lawn sod you can buy at a landscaping store or Home Depot, well, this is NOT sod. It is bug-free, soil-free, cleaner and (EDIT: Now that I've had the experience, the hydroponics do NOT last longer than garden sod, so long as the dirt is packed tightly and the sod is watered daily). I made a summary chart, attaching as a picture.
EDIT: Now that I've had more experience with many options, I've updated the chart and will write more on my experiences. As stated above, I was incorrect to presume that garden sod lasted less time than hydroponic grasses (something I had heard from others). From my experience, if the sod is fresh and packed in tight soil and watered immediately (and daily afterwards), it can outlast the hydroponics. Obviously, the fresher the sod, the better, so a lawn & garden store might be best; for me, Home Depot is still the most convenient, and their sod is fresher than Lowes in our area (the dirt on the Lowes grass was ridiculously dry and loose, plus, the sod is more expensive by almost double). I have gotten this sod to last almost a month on my balcony, when watered frequently (but not drowned in a tray). That is good, because replacing a whole strip of lawn sod on the 2nd floor is a huge, dirty chore--I have to carry it from the car, up stairs, then through a carpeted living room to the balcony, and it is quite heavy. It's all worth it to have the dog use it for this long and not have to take him downstairs constantly to do his business, but it's still not something to look forward to. If you are not able to lift this stuff or don't want to deal with the dirtiness, I still highly recommend hydroponic grass--DL or FP. However, I have to take one star away because neither offer Prime, and with the convenience of fresh sod in the summer, I have to go with HD or Lowes (plus, the realization that hydroponics can't outlast sod; I think this is mostly due to the fact that sod soil retains moisture better and just is larger, so it spreads out the urine better). In the winter, I will likely go back to hydroponic delivery or artificial turf. The fake grass isn't a terrible option when it's cooler, because it doesn't stink as much as in the heat. In the summer, you just smell it too much, no matter how much you spray it down. What I do for artificial turf on the balcony is lay a tarp down underneath first, then layer rubber mulch on top in a slant for drainage, then spray Nature's Miracle Urine Destroyer liberally, then lay the fake grass with drainage holes over it. The dog still prefers fresh live grass, obviously, especially if the turf gets too old with urine smells. You really have to spray it down frequently to minimize this, so I have to go with live grass products in the summer.
Tips on getting your dog to use grass:
Reward and praise every time you see your dog go inside the box--I use his favorite salmon treats
Don't move the box too much, it's confusing to puppies
Take him/her to the box on leash right after a nap and give the verbal command you use outside for elimination; be patient if he doesn't go
Spray with pheromone products; I've never tried it, but some say it works--I just catch some of his pee in a poop bag when he goes outside and use as a "reminder" when he hasn't used the box in a while
*Gently* ease the poop off the grass once it's hardened somewhat, to avoid mashing it into the grass; makes it last clean longer
After removing poop in the mornings, spray or mist it down with a spray bottle liberally; this also helps clean off the urine
If your puppy frequently goes near the box but just outside it, limit his fenced in area more (had this problem when I started in the kitchen)
For accidents outside box, use Nature's Miracle to clean up the scent so that he isn't tempted to start a habit
The first photo shows a box newly arrived - from Calif to PA takes 5 or 6 days. The second photo shows one after two weeks of constant use, with pee pads under the sod. It's ready to toss now.
I researched and researched and found this product. I was skeptical at first, but ordered it any way because it had such amazing reviews. I received my shipment today- I bought three of them to get started- probably over kill- but I wasn't sure if he would take to them right away so I wanted to cover a larger area. I bought them right here from Amazon and with shipping for all three it cost $87.00, again this may have been "over kill" but I thought if this works it's worth every penny! And it DID!
To my AMAZEMENT- I un-boxed them and put them on my balcony- let CC (my dog) sniff them for a few minutes and kept saying "Go potty CC"-- and within minutes he did just that!! It was amazing and of course I made a HUGE deal out of it and gave him a treat!
These are actually "patches" of real grass- they come in a coated box, in which you simply take the lid off, lay them down and train your dog to potty on them anywhere and at any time. Then- you pick up the "poop" just like outside and throw it in the toilet- or trash, and when they get used up with peeing ( takes about two weeks) you simply put the top back on and throw it in the trash, that's it. It's amazing ( if I haven't said that enough already) and it really does work!
I didn't want to buy the "synthetic" grass because of the smell and odor I had heard and read about- so I opted for the real grass and in case you don't believe me (LOL) I took a picture ( see attached) from today (02/06/2015) and less than ten minutes of putting it out and he used it immediately. No more going outside in the freezing cold- just open the patio door and Walaaaah! Fresh patch!! No odor, no mess, no smell and when you are done you simply order your next one! You can get an "auto shipment" too- one delivered every two weeks- so cool!
I am a REAL customer and this is a REAL experience and REALLY did buy it right here at Amazon. I was shocked and so very happy! What an awesome idea and product! LOVE IT!
