A major concern for pet owners when it comes to artificial grass is the smell of urine and bacterial growth. With K9 Sand, you can wave farewell to those worries. Our one-of-a-kind infill solution minimizes the smell of urine by stopping the breakdown of ammonia, which is responsible for the bad 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, washed, and sent to your door, making it 100% natural.



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

It's essential that the infill in your artificial turf is not harmful if ingested in case of your pet accidentally eats it. With our product, you can have confidence knowing that it's non-toxic, containing no harmful chemicals. In fact, K9 Sand is made of an ingredient commonly used in pet and human supplements, which is commonly found in dietary supplements for both pets and humans alike. Your pet's health 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 summer months. But with K9 Sand, you don't have to worry about your pet's feet getting painfully hot. Each grain of K9 Sand contains micro-pores that trap moisture, which is then released as the surface temperature goes up, providing evaporative. 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 have fun on.



At Southwest Greens of Tucson, we recognize the unique needs of pet owners when it comes to synthetic turf. 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 smell reduction, bacteria inhibition, superior drainage, environmentally friendly material, and temperature control, you can count on that you're providing the top-quality for your furry friends.
