A major concern for people with pets when it comes to artificial grass is the smell of urine and the growth of bacteria. With K9 Sand, you can wave farewell to those worries. Our exclusive infill solution diminishes the smell of urine by preventing the hydrolysis of ammonia, which is responsible for the bad odor (Figure 1).

K9 Sand inhibits the growth of bacteria thanks to its germ-fighting properties. The most amazing feature? K9 Sand achieves all of this without any chemicals — it's simply sourced from the ocean, purified, and delivered to your door, making it 100% natural.



We know the value of maintaining a tidy turf area for your pets. 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 small voids in the Flow-Through Drainage System deter liquid from collecting on top of the backing, ensuring a tidy turf surface all the time. 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 non-toxic in case of accidental ingestion. With our product, 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 safe, natural substance found in nature, which is a safe and natural substance. Your pet's safety is our top priority, and K9 Sand meets the strictest safety standards for pet-friendly artificial turf.



Artificial turf for pets can become hot, especially during the warm season. 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 moisture, 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 degrees cooler than standard turf infill, creating a refreshing and comfortable surface for your pets to have fun on.



At Southwest Greens Vancouver (Second Generation Landscapes), we appreciate 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 backyard paradise for your furry friends in your outdoor space. With K9 Sand's odor reduction, anti-bacterial properties, great drainage, non-toxic composition, and heat-reducing features, you can count on that you're providing the top-quality for your furry friends.
