One of the biggest concerns for pet owners 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 one-of-a-kind infill solution minimizes the smell of urine by preventing the hydrolysis of ammonia, which is responsible for the bad 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 added coatings — it's simply extracted from the ocean, filtered, and shipped to your door, making it 100% natural.



We know the value of maintaining a well-kept turf surface for your four-legged companions. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive Flow-Through Drainage System, 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 superior drainage capabilities.



It's important that the infill in your artificial turf is non-toxic in case of your pet chews on it. With K9 Sand, you can have assurance knowing that it's not harmful if ingested, containing only pet-friendly ingredients. In fact, K9 Sand is made of an ingredient commonly used in pet and human supplements, 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 get hot, especially during the summer months. But with K9 Sand, you don't have to worry about your pet's paws and feet getting painfully hot. Each particle of K9 Sand contains micro-pores that trap water, which is then dispersed as the surface temperature gets hotter, 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 have fun on.



At Southwest Greens Flagstaff, we appreciate 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 solution for creating a safe haven for your pets in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's odor elimination, anti-bacterial properties, excellent drainage, non-toxic composition, and cooling properties, you can depend on that you're providing the best for your furry friends.
