A major concern for people with pets when it comes to artificial grass is the smell of urine and bacterial growth. With K9 Sand, you can say goodbye to those worries. Our one-of-a-kind infill solution reduces the smell of urine by preventing the hydrolysis of ammonia, which is responsible for the awful odor (Figure 1).

K9 Sand stops the growth of bacteria thanks to its bacteria-killing properties. The great thing? K9 Sand achieves all of this without any added coatings — it's simply sourced from the ocean, cleaned, and sent to your door, making it 100% natural.



We realize the value of maintaining a well-kept turf area for your furry friends. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive innovative drainage technology, which offers superior 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 24/7. Say goodbye to standing water and unpleasant odors with K9 Pet Turf and its impressive 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 peace of mind knowing that it's non-toxic, containing no heavy metals or plastics. 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 main priority, 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 paws and feet getting too hot. Each particle of K9 Sand contains tiny holes that trap moisture, 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 enjoy.



At Southwest Greens of Augusta, we recognize the particular needs of pet owners when it comes to fake 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 reduction, bacteria inhibition, superior drainage, safe and non-toxic material, and cooling properties, you can trust that you're providing the top-quality for your furry friends.
