One of the biggest concerns for pet owners when it comes to artificial grass is the smell of urine and bacterial growth. With K9 Sand, you can eliminate those worries. Our distinctive infill solution diminishes the smell of urine by stopping the hydrolysis of ammonia, which is responsible for the unpleasant odor (Figure 1).

K9 Sand stops the growth of bacteria thanks to its anti-microbial properties. The most amazing feature? K9 Sand achieves all of this without any added coatings — it's simply harvested from the ocean, purified, and shipped to your door, making it 100% natural.



We recognize the value of maintaining a neat turf surface for your pets. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive innovative drainage technology, which offers top-notch drainage for rain, water, and pet urine (Figure 2).

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



It's crucial that the infill in your artificial turf is safe for pets in case of accidental ingestion. With our pet-friendly artificial turf infill, you can have assurance 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 a safe and natural substance. Your pet's safety is our top priority, and K9 Sand meets the most rigorous standards for pet-friendly artificial turf.



Artificial turf for pets can become hot, especially during the summer months. 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 water, which is then dispersed as the surface temperature increases, providing cooling. As a result, K9 Sand helps keep the turf's temperature approximately 20 degrees cooler than standard turf infill, creating a cool and comfortable surface for your pets to play and relax on.



At Southwest Greens of Metro New York, 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 backyard paradise for your furry friends in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's odor elimination, bacterial resistance, great drainage, environmentally friendly material, and temperature control, you can count on that you're providing the best for your furry friends.
