A major concern for people with pets when it comes to artificial grass is the smell of urine and the growth of bacteria. With K9 Sand, you can wave farewell to those worries. Our unique infill solution diminishes the smell of urine by preventing the hydrolysis of ammonia, which is responsible for the awful odor (Figure 1).

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



We know the value of maintaining a neat turf area for your pets. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive Flow-Through Drainage System, which offers exceptional drainage for rain, water, and urine from pets (Figure 2).

The tiny 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 excellent drainage capabilities.



It's vital that the infill in your artificial turf is not harmful if ingested in case of your pet chews on it. With K9 Sand, you can have peace of mind knowing that it's not harmful if ingested, containing only pet-friendly ingredients. In fact, K9 Sand is made of a natural mineral found in many dietary supplements, which is a safe and natural substance. Your pet's safety is our main priority, and K9 Sand meets the highest standards for pet-friendly artificial turf.



Artificial turf for pets can get hot, especially during the hot weather. But with K9 Sand, you don't have to worry about your pet's paws getting too hot. Each particle of K9 Sand contains tiny holes that trap water, which is then released 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 play and relax on.



At Southwest Greens of Eastern Washington, we appreciate the unique needs of pet owners when it comes to fake grass. That's why we've developed Pet Turf and K9 sand - the perfect answer for creating a backyard paradise for your furry friends in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's odor elimination, anti-bacterial properties, excellent drainage, safe and non-toxic material, and temperature control, you can depend on that you're providing the highest quality for your furry friends.
