A major concern for pet owners when it comes to artificial grass is the smell of urine and the growth of bacteria. With K9 Sand, you can bid adieu to those worries. Our one-of-a-kind infill solution lessens the smell of urine by preventing the breakdown of ammonia, which is responsible for the terrible odor (Figure 1).

K9 Sand prevents the growth of bacteria thanks to its anti-microbial properties. The best part? K9 Sand achieves all of this without any synthetic additives — it's simply sourced from the ocean, cleaned, and delivered to your door, making it 100% natural.



We recognize the importance of maintaining a neat turf surface for your four-legged companions. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive Flow-Through Drainage System, which offers top-notch drainage for rain, water, and pet urine (Figure 2).

The small voids in the Flow-Through Drainage System deter liquid from collecting on top of the backing, ensuring a tidy turf surface around the clock. Say goodbye to pooled water and unpleasant odors with K9 Pet Turf and its superior drainage capabilities.



It's essential that the infill in your artificial turf is non-toxic in case of your pet chews on it. With K9 Sand, you can have peace of mind knowing that it's non-toxic, containing only pet-friendly ingredients. In fact, K9 Sand is made of a safe, natural substance found in nature, which is perfectly safe for your pet to ingest. Your pet's health is our main priority, and K9 Sand meets the most rigorous standards for pet-friendly artificial turf.



Artificial turf for pets can get hot, especially during the summer months. But with K9 Sand, you don't have to worry about your pet's feet getting too hot. Each grain of K9 Sand contains micro-pores that trap moisture, which is then dispersed as the surface temperature gets hotter, providing evaporative. As a result, K9 Sand helps keep the turf's surface temperature approximately 20 degrees cooler than standard turf infill, creating a refreshing and comfortable surface for your pets to have fun on.



At Southwest Greens of Southern California, we appreciate the specific needs of pet owners when it comes to synthetic turf. That's why we've developed Pet Turf and K9 sand - the perfect solution for creating a safe haven for your pets in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's odor reduction, bacteria inhibition, great drainage, safe and non-toxic material, and cooling properties, you can count on that you're providing the top-quality for your furry friends.
