As pet owners ourselves, we know how important it is to create a safe, comfortable, and clean environment for your pets to run around and relax on. This is why we have made K9 Bolt Pet Turf and K9 Sand - the perfect solution for your pet's fake grass needs.

A major concern for pet owners when it comes to fake grass is the smell of urine and the growth of bacteria. With K9 Sand, you can say goodbye to those worries. Our exclusive infill solution minimizes the smell of urine by preventing the breakdown of ammonia, which is responsible for the unpleasant odor (Figure 1).

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



We understand the value of maintaining a well-kept turf area 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 urine from pets (Figure 2).

The microscopic voids in the Flow-Through Drainage System deter liquid from collecting on top of the backing, ensuring a tidy turf surface 24/7. Say goodbye to stagnant 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 accidental ingestion. With our pet-friendly artificial turf infill, you can have confidence knowing that it's safe for pets, containing only pet-friendly ingredients. 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 health is our main priority, and K9 Sand meets the highest 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 too hot. Each grain of K9 Sand contains tiny holes that trap water, which is then dispersed as the surface temperature gets hotter, providing evaporative. 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 Asheville, we understand the unique needs of pet owners when it comes to fake grass. 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 smell reduction, bacteria inhibition, excellent drainage, environmentally friendly material, and heat-reducing features, you can rely on that you're providing the highest quality for your furry friends.
