previous post Jack had emergency surgery. He can't do stairs for the next 2 weeks while he recovers. We live in a 3 floor townhouse so this poses quite a problem. We went to the hardware store and bought supplies to make our own potty spot on our back deck. I had blogged about other patio potties I had seen online, but ours was much cheaper to make and uses real grass.
This is what you need
1 4'x4' peg board (about $13)
2 2"x4"x96" ($2.12 a piece)
plastic sheeting (we used durable plastic leaf bags)
2 bags of potting soil ($2 a bag)
2 rolls of sod ($5 a roll)
Here is what you do.
Lay the peg board down on the deck and cover it with the plastic sheeting or bags. Staple gun it or secure it under the peg board so the sheeting doesn't slip. Create a trim around the board using the 2x4's and secure in place. Empty the two bags of potting soil on top of the plastic cover peg board.
Since Jack is a boy dog we bought a little plant for him to aim at to ensure he will pee on the grass. We also bought a hose attachment for our sink so we can spray off the grass and water it daily to make sure it doesn't die.
