K9Grass Installed at New West Hollywood Dog Parks

January 13, 2018 (West Hollywood, CA) – K9Grass takes Hollywood! The ribbon cutting ceremony for the two new dog parks at West Hollywood Park took place on Saturday January 13, 2018. Residents of West Hollywood who have dogs have long been hoping for a beautiful, safe, and clean park where they can take their dogs, and now they have two!

K9Grass by ForeverLawn was installed in both of the parks, one small park that’s approximately 4,000 square feet and another larger park that’s approximately 7,000 square feet. Each park is gated and fenced-in with several features such as shade trees, mounds, and terraces.

ForeverLawn Pacific Coast was in attendance at the ribbon cutting ceremony where Mayor John Heilman praised K9Grass by ForeverLawn. He couldn’t have better summed up the benefits of our artificial turf.

“People have been asking me, “What about this grass? This grass is amazing!” Well it’s actually not grass. It’s a specially formulated K9Grass artificial turf. It is specially designed for dogs, it is environmentally safe for dogs and their guardians, there’s no rubber or composite infills, the blades of grass have antimicrobial protection, and they are designed to stay cool and not burn our little doggies’ paws,” says Mayor John Heilman.

These two dog parks are just a fraction of the construction and redesign taking place at West Hollywood Park. The city has plans for a new aquatic recreational facility, basketball, tennis and volleyball courts, playgrounds, and so much more!

Once the ribbon was cut and the gates to the park were opened, we couldn’t help but rejoice at the sight of happy dogs and children playing together on the K9Grass. We couldn’t be happier with how the dog parks turned out and we have a feeling that they will be enjoyed for years to come by the many dog residents of West Hollywood.

Deputy Kotfila Memorial Dog Park Honors Memory of Fallen Officer

August 9, 2017 (North Canton, OH) – ForeverLawn, the leading synthetic turf company, is honored to be part of the development of a special dog park project honoring the memory of Deputy John Kotfila, Jr., a police officer who lost his life in the line of duty.

Deputy Kotfila was 30 years old when he used his police cruiser to stop a wrong way driver on the Selmon Expressway, an act that saved at least one life but cost him his own. When the city of Tampa learned of the relationship that Deputy Kotfila had with his dog Dexter, they decided to build a dog park under the expressway to honor his memory and to recognize his contributions to the city.

The Deputy Kotfila Memorial Dog Park, built under the Selmon expressway, opened earlier this year. The dog park was a joint effort from the Tampa Hillsboro Expressway Authority, the City of Tampa, the Tampa Police Department, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, ForeverLawn of Tampa Bay, the Mark Tucker Foundation, and Lema Construction. With separate areas for small and large dogs, the park provides hills, concrete pillars, and a special antimicrobial synthetic grass made specifically for dogs. The expressway provides cover and shade, which results in a cooler place for dogs and their families to play.

The surface chosen for the dog park was K9Grass Classic by ForeverLawn, the only knitted product in the industry, which offers superior drainage and does not require infill like common synthetic grass.

The park is the fourth dog park in Tampa to choose the K9Grass product, due to the success it has seen over the past seven years of experience working with the product.

US Colonel’s Companion to Receive a Patch of Grass from Home

August 9, 2017 (North Canton, OH) – ForeverLawn, the leading synthetic turf company, had the opportunity this month to show appreciation to an active duty US Military Colonel—and his dog— serving in Saudi Arabia. Buckeye the Pug, the beloved dog of Colonel Kelly S. Rosenberger, will soon receive his very own patch of K9Grass, the artificial grass designed specifically for dogs.

Colonel Rosenberger learned about K9Grass on Facebook, and contacted ForeverLawn Pacific Coast about getting grass for Buckeye the Pug. Rosenberger is an active duty officer who recently moved to Saudi Arabia with his wife, three cats, and Buckeye the Pug. “There is no grass here and it’s freaking the pug out,” said Rosenberger. “So I want to build him a pet relief area.”

Since K9Grass is designed specifically for dogs, it’s the perfect artificial grass to give Buckeye the Pug the grassy comforts of home that he wants, with added benefits such as antimicrobial agents built into the blades and superior drainage to help with waste removal. Unlike other synthetic grass products that require infill materials to support the blades and weigh the grass down, K9Grass provides a unique construction that does not require infill, which is the most effective method for dealing with pet waste.

“We are all so appreciative of what you and the rest of our military do for us that we felt it would be a small but nice gesture to send you a 5’ x 7’ piece of K9Grass at no charge to you,” replied Ken Karmie, K9Grass brand manager and owner of ForeverLawn Pacific Coast. “I speak for all of ForeverLawn when I say we value and respect what you do. Thank you for your service.”

Buckeye the Pug’s K9Grass is currently on its way to Saudi Arabia, and Colonel Rosenberger plans to send an update to ForeverLawn showing the pug enjoying his new patch of grass. Since K9Grass is Made in the USA, Buckeye the Pug can rest assured knowing that his new grass is truly a piece of home.

Artificial grass is becoming more and more popular in urban areas where there’s not many grassy areas, especially for dogs. Apartment dwellers with dogs in large cities like New York City often find that there just aren’t many good places to take their dogs for play and potty time. Dog parks are a great option—if you can find a nice one near you.

K9Grass is known around the country as the superior surfacing solution for dogs, making it the #1 choice for dog parks and potty areas. An article in the Brooklyn Paper out of New York, New York brings up an issue that Brooklyn locals have identified, and the solution they are demanding is K9Grass by ForeverLawn.

One local in particular, Sandy Balboza, brought up the issue of the gravel surfacing at the Pier 6 dog run in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Sandy sits on the park’s volunteer Community Advisory Council and has a 5 year old poodle who she adores.

Sandy and many other locals are claiming that the gravel used at the park is painful on dogs’ paws, and can also harbor bacteria.

Their proposed solution? K9Grass. The main draws are the turf’s attention to safety and its soft, natural feel.

The article says, “Park honchos asked Balboza and 11 others to come up with a report last year suggesting a replacement surface, and Balboza has since collected 200 signatures supporting a special dog turf called K9Grass”.

Dogs running and playing on K9Grass by ForeverLawn

ForeverLawn has conducted extensive research in order to develop the high quality artificial grass products that we offer. We are always using the latest, cutting-edge technology and design materials to stay ahead of the curve.

One of the innovators behind it all is K9Grass brand manager Ken Karmie. Featured in PRWeb, Ken Karmie was named the “pet surfacing expert”.

Ken will be speaking at the upcoming Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo West on May 4-7 in Burbank, California, presenting a seminar called “Considering Artificial Grass—All You Need to Know”.

“The K9Grass solution has been ten years in the making. We’ve eliminated infill, reduced maintenance, added antimicrobial protection, and changed the construction from a urethane backing to a knitted backing—all important components. I will be explaining all of this in detail in my seminar, as well as showing how dog facility owners can increase their revenues by installing K9Grass,” says Ken.

At the Pet Boarding and Daycare Expo West, visitors will have the opportunity to experience K9Grass up close with the expert. Among the latest advancements of K9Grass is the patent-pending indoor flushing system that allows K9Grass to be installed indoors. This is a revolutionary advancement that will change the way pet boarding and doggy daycare facilities operate. Ken will be speaking on these new features and more at the upcoming expo.

K9Grass Mentioned In Philadelphia Magazine

Schuylkill River Park Dog Run with K9Grass by ForeverLawn

Philadelphia Magazine published an article called “Pets: The Complete Guide to Philly’s Best Dog Parks” in which they named the ten greatest dog parks in Philadelphia. One dog park stands out above the others on the list—Schuylkill River Park Dog Run.

This park is described in the article as “the fanciest of all of Philly’s dog parks” because of its $14,000 drinking fountain, sections for both large and small dogs, and best of all the features, the K9Grass artificial turf surfacing.

ForeverLawn has aided in the transformation of so many dog parks and other types of pet facilities with K9Grass, and it seems Philadelphia has fallen in love with the transformation at Schuylkill River Park Dog Run.

K9Grass offers superior drainage that other types of surfacing materials like wood chips or concrete don’t.

Owners that bring their dogs to the park are thrilled about leaving with dry paws, as opposed to the muddy, wet paws that they are used to at other parks or at home.

Rather than trying to grow and maintain natural grass, a nearly impossible task with so many dogs running around, dog parks like this one are improving the appearance of community areas with lush and green K9Grass.

Not only are these areas more appealing to dogs, but their owners love the fresh smell, too!

No other synthetic grass offers the drainage, cleanliness, or durability of K9Grass, and it is the only synthetic grass that can be used in an indoor pet environment,” says Ken Karmie, K9Grass brand manager.

Other key features of K9Grass that make the artificial turf the leading choice for boarding facilities and dog parks around the country are its cleanliness, drainage, and no-infill design. With AlphaSan® antimicrobial protection built into the blades, the turf stays fresh-smelling and safe for dogs. Our superior installation methods make the turf 100% drainable to eliminate liquid waste, adding to the overall freshness of the product.
