Benefits of Fresh Grass - For You!

October 25, 2020 2 min read

 

By now, you probably know the benefits your dog can get from a fresh grass potty instead of a synthetic grass potty. But did you know that fresh grass can benefit you, as well? Here are some benefits that you can get simply from having a Fresh Patch in your apartment or house. 

Air Quality

Believe it or not, the air quality inside your home can be improved from fresh grass! Just like a houseplant, grass takes in carbon dioxide and through the process of photosynthesis, produces oxygen. While you won't notice the effects, it's helpful for your environment and can even trap some of the dust and dander that would normally float around your home.

Stress Relief 

Fresh grass can be pretty, even if it doubles as your dog's potty! With more people working from home than ever before, it's important to create a calming environment. It's been shown that people are less stressed when they have a view of a greenspace from where they are working. Wherever you're working, you can make a greenspace of a Fresh Patch by surrounding it with other plants and by adding accessories to make it look like a peaceful park area.

Cooling Benefits 

If you have an all-concrete balcony, then you know how hot it can get in the summer. Grass helps cool off pavement and concrete, so if you have plants and one or more Fresh Patches on your balcony, then they can help make relaxing on your patio a little cooler on those sunny, hot days.

Reduced Outside Contact

Okay, so this isn't necessarily a fresh grass benefit, but it is a Fresh Patch benefit! With your pup's potty square inside your home, you won't need to venture outside as much and therefore, stay healthier and safer! Of course, getting outside is always good for you and your pup! But if you can limit some exposure during COVID and flu season, especially in crowded apartment buildings, it's always a help!
