A major concern for people with pets when it comes to synthetic turf is the smell of urine and bacterial growth. With K9 Sand, you can bid adieu to those worries. Our exclusive infill solution minimizes the smell of urine by preventing the hydrolysis of ammonia, which is responsible for the bad odor (Figure 1).

K9 Sand inhibits the growth of bacteria thanks to its bacteria-killing properties. The great thing? K9 Sand achieves all of this without any synthetic additives — it's simply harvested from the ocean, washed, and delivered to your door, making it 100% natural.



We recognize the value of maintaining a clean turf surface for your pets. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive patented drainage system, which offers exceptional drainage for rain, water, and pet urine (Figure 2).

The tiny voids in the drainage system deter liquid from collecting on top of the backing, ensuring a tidy turf surface 24/7. Say goodbye to standing water and unpleasant odors with K9 Pet Turf and its impressive drainage capabilities.



It's important that the infill in your artificial turf is non-toxic in case of your pet accidentally eats it. With our infill, you can have peace of mind knowing that it's not harmful if ingested, containing no heavy metals or plastics. In fact, K9 Sand is made of a safe, natural substance found in nature, which is a safe and natural substance. Your pet's well-being is our main priority, and K9 Sand meets the most rigorous standards for pet-friendly artificial turf.



Artificial turf for pets can become hot, especially during the warm season. But with K9 Sand, you don't have to worry about your pet's feet getting too hot. Each particle of K9 Sand contains tiny holes 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°F cooler than standard turf infill, creating a refreshing and comfortable surface for your pets to have fun on.



At Southwest Greens of Western Canada, we understand the specific needs of pet owners when it comes to artificial grass. That's why we've developed Pet Turf and K9 sand - the perfect answer for creating a safe haven for your pets in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's smell reduction, bacterial resistance, excellent drainage, non-toxic composition, and temperature control, you can count on that you're providing the top-quality for your furry friends.
