A major concern for people with pets when it comes to fake grass is the smell of urine and bacterial growth. With K9 Sand, you can wave farewell to those worries. Our unique infill solution minimizes the smell of urine by stopping the breakdown 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 most amazing feature? K9 Sand achieves all of this without any synthetic additives — it's simply harvested from the ocean, filtered, and delivered to your door, making it 100% natural.



We recognize the importance of maintaining a neat turf area for your four-legged companions. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive innovative drainage technology, which offers superior drainage for rain, water, and urine from pets (Figure 2).

The microscopic voids in the drainage system deter moisture from collecting on top of the backing, ensuring a tidy turf surface constantly. 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 accidentally eats it. With our infill, you can have assurance knowing that it's non-toxic, containing no harmful chemicals. In fact, K9 Sand is made of calcium carbonate, which is a safe and natural substance. Your pet's safety is our main focus, and K9 Sand meets the highest 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 uncomfortably hot. Each grain of K9 Sand contains tiny holes that trap moisture, which is then dispersed as the surface temperature increases, providing cooling. 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 Charlotte, 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 fix for creating a backyard paradise for your furry friends in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's smell reduction, bacterial resistance, great drainage, environmentally friendly material, and temperature control, you can count on that you're providing the best for your furry friends.
