One of the biggest concerns for pet owners when it comes to fake grass is the smell of urine and the growth of bacteria. With K9 Sand, you can wave farewell to those worries. Our exclusive infill solution lessens the smell of urine by stopping the hydrolysis of ammonia, which is responsible for the terrible odor (Figure 1).

K9 Sand inhibits the growth of bacteria thanks to its germ-fighting properties. The great thing? K9 Sand achieves all of this without any added coatings — it's simply sourced from the ocean, filtered, and delivered to your door, making it 100% natural.



We realize the importance of maintaining a clean turf area for your furry friends. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive innovative drainage technology, which offers top-notch drainage for rain, water, and urine from pets (Figure 2).

The small voids in the drainage system deter liquid from collecting on top of the backing, ensuring a tidy turf surface constantly. Say goodbye to stagnant water and unpleasant odors with K9 Pet Turf and its outstanding drainage capabilities.



It's vital that the infill in your artificial turf is non-toxic in case of accidental ingestion. With our pet-friendly artificial turf infill, you can have peace of mind knowing that it's not harmful if ingested, containing only natural minerals and elements. In fact, K9 Sand is made of calcium carbonate, which is perfectly safe for your pet to ingest. Your pet's well-being is our main focus, 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 and feet getting too hot. Each grain of K9 Sand contains tiny holes that trap water, which is then dispersed as the surface temperature increases, 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 play and relax on.



At Southwest Greens of Michigan, we recognize the specific needs of pet owners when it comes to fake grass. That's why we've developed Pet Turf and K9 sand - the perfect solution for creating a pet-friendly oasis in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's odor reduction, bacteria inhibition, excellent drainage, safe and non-toxic material, and temperature control, you can count on that you're providing the top-quality for your furry friends.
