Being pet owners ourselves, we know how important it is to create a safe, comfortable, and hygienic environment for your furry friends to run around and relax on. That's why we have made K9 Bolt Pet Turf and K9 Sand - an ideal solution for your pet's synthetic grass needs. In this blog post, we will dive into the special features of K9 Sand, which is the eco-friendliest turf infill on the market and offers a range of advantages for animals and their owners. Read on to learn more!



One of the biggest concerns for people with pets when it comes to artificial grass is the smell of urine and bacterial growth. With K9 Sand, you can bid adieu to those worries. Our exclusive infill solution reduces the smell of urine by preventing the breakdown of ammonia, which is responsible for the awful odor (Figure 1).

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



We recognize the critical role of maintaining a tidy turf area 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 pet urine (Figure 2).

The tiny voids in the Flow-Through Drainage System deter water from collecting on top of the backing, ensuring a tidy turf surface 24/7. Say goodbye to pooled water and unpleasant odors with K9 Pet Turf and its superior drainage capabilities.



It's vital that the infill in your artificial turf is safe for pets in case of your pet accidentally eats it. With K9 Sand, you can have assurance knowing that it's safe for pets, containing only natural minerals and elements. In fact, K9 Sand is made of calcium carbonate, which is commonly found in dietary supplements for both pets and humans alike. Your pet's health is our top priority, and K9 Sand meets the strictest safety 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 painfully hot. Each grain of K9 Sand contains tiny holes that trap moisture, which is then dispersed as the surface temperature gets hotter, providing cooling. As a result, K9 Sand helps keep the turf's temperature approximately 20°F cooler than standard turf infill, creating a cool and comfortable surface for your pets to enjoy.



At Southwest Greens of Connecticut, 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 answer for creating a safe haven for your pets in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's smell reduction, bacterial resistance, excellent drainage, safe and non-toxic material, and temperature control, you can depend on that you're providing the top-quality for your furry friends.
