One of the biggest concerns for people with pets when it comes to synthetic turf is the smell of urine and the growth of bacteria. With K9 Sand, you can wave farewell to those worries. Our exclusive infill solution reduces the smell of urine by stopping the hydrolysis of ammonia, which is responsible for the unpleasant 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 synthetic additives — it's simply sourced from the ocean, cleaned, and shipped to your door, making it 100% natural.



We understand the critical role of maintaining a neat turf surface for your furry friends. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive patented drainage system, which offers exceptional drainage for rain, water, and dog urine (Figure 2).

The small voids in the Flow-Through Drainage System deter water from collecting on top of the backing, ensuring a tidy turf surface around the clock. Say goodbye to pooled 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 your pet accidentally eats it. With our pet-friendly artificial turf infill, you can have assurance 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 commonly found in dietary supplements for both pets and humans alike. Your pet's well-being is our top priority, 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 getting too hot. Each particle of K9 Sand contains micro-pores that trap moisture, 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 enjoy.



At Southwest Greens Ontario, we understand the specific needs of pet owners when it comes to synthetic turf. That's why we've developed Pet Turf and K9 sand - the perfect fix for creating a pet-friendly oasis in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's odor control, bacteria inhibition, excellent drainage, non-toxic composition, and cooling properties, you can trust that you're providing the best for your furry friends.
