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 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 prevents the growth of bacteria thanks to its bacteria-killing properties. The most amazing feature? K9 Sand achieves all of this without any chemicals — it's simply extracted from the ocean, purified, and shipped to your door, making it 100% natural.



We know the value of maintaining a well-kept turf surface for your furry friends. 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 tiny voids in the Flow-Through Drainage System deter moisture from collecting on top of the backing, ensuring a tidy turf surface 24/7. Say goodbye to pooled water and unpleasant odors with K9 Pet Turf and its outstanding drainage capabilities.



It's vital that the infill in your artificial turf is safe for pets in case of your pet chews on it. With K9 Sand, you can have peace of mind knowing that it's safe for pets, containing no heavy metals or plastics. In fact, K9 Sand is made of a safe, natural substance found in nature, which is commonly found in dietary supplements for both pets and humans alike. Your pet's well-being is our highest concern, and K9 Sand meets the strictest safety standards for pet-friendly artificial turf.



Artificial turf for pets can get hot, especially during the warm season. But with K9 Sand, you don't have to worry about your pet's paws and feet getting too hot. Each particle of K9 Sand contains micro-pores that trap water, which is then released as the surface temperature increases, providing cooling. As a result, K9 Sand helps keep the turf's temperature approximately 20°F cooler than standard turf infill, creating a refreshing and comfortable surface for your pets to enjoy.



At Southwest Greens of Austin, we understand the particular 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 backyard paradise for your furry friends in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's odor elimination, bacteria inhibition, great drainage, environmentally friendly material, and heat-reducing features, you can rely on that you're providing the top-quality for your furry friends.
