Being pet owners ourselves, we know how important it is to create a safe, comfortable, and hygienic environment for your pets to play and relax on. This is why we have developed K9 Bolt Pet Turf and K9 Sand - an ideal solution for your pet's fake grass needs. In this blog post, we will dive into the special features of K9 Sand, which is the most eco-conscious turf infill on the market and offers a range of benefits for animals and their owners. Discover more below!



One of the biggest concerns for people with pets when it comes to fake grass is the smell of urine and bacterial growth. With K9 Sand, you can say goodbye to those worries. Our distinctive infill solution reduces 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 anti-microbial properties. The great thing? K9 Sand achieves all of this without any added coatings — it's simply harvested from the ocean, filtered, and shipped to your door, making it 100% natural.



We know the value of maintaining a tidy turf surface for your pets. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive patented drainage system, which offers superior drainage for rain, water, and pet urine (Figure 2).

The small voids in the drainage system deter water 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 impressive drainage capabilities.



It's vital that the infill in your artificial turf is non-toxic in case of your pet chews on it. With our product, you can have peace of mind knowing that it's not harmful if ingested, containing no harmful chemicals. In fact, K9 Sand is made of a natural mineral found in many dietary supplements, which is a safe and natural substance. Your pet's health is our main focus, 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 feet getting painfully hot. Each grain of K9 Sand contains micro-pores that trap moisture, which is then released 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 refreshing and comfortable surface for your pets to play and relax on.



At Southwest Greens Northern CA West, we recognize the unique 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, superior drainage, environmentally friendly material, and heat-reducing features, you can rely on that you're providing the best for your furry friends.
