Yes! Our innovative in-filled polypropylene synthetic turf products are constructed to function like natural golf course greens, so your ball will have the same spin and true roll of a natural surface.

Our outdoor synthetic putting greens are tailored for each client, considering available space as well as budget.
Synthetic golf greens call for a high level of mastery for design and installation. Since our beginnings in the golf industry in 1996, we have truly perfected the art of golf construction. Breaks, bunkers, undulations and turf blending name just a few of the design elements important for authentic looking and rolling golf greens. With so many additional architectural features to think about over a more basic synthetic, golf green construction cost averages from $20 to $25 per square foot, more or less calculated considering region, accessibility and features.
The high quality of the materials we use is a very important factor in delivering a top-of-the-line golf green. Our quality products offer the lush, natural green look of genuine grass as well as the gentle feel and true performance characteristics lacking in nylon and other popular materials used in many synthetic golf greens.

Will the synthetic turf decline over time? How tough is the turf?

Southwest Greens's earliest installations are 20 years old or older and have maintained the rich green color and texture of genuine grass. Our UV-resistant synthetic turf products look and function like new because they are engineered to withstand heavy traffic, extreme weather conditions and temperature fluctuations for all-year use. All installations come complete with a one-year workmanship warranty and manufacturer's warranty that covers fading.

Our synthetic grass is developed to be used and is highly recommended in busy areas or for long-term sporting purposes.

Highly trained Southwest Greens designers and installers are the only personnel authorized to design and install our synthetic grass materials. DIY purchases are available with consultation but will void any installation warranty.

Usually, artificial grass is disposed of directly into landfills, taking up precious space. Shaw offers an improved alternative through the Green Edge Recycling Program. Once synthetic turf is removed, we are prepared to repurpose it in a variety of ways including carpet backing, mats, rugs, sheet goods and more.

Sand filling from the synthetic grass product is mechanically extracted from the turf, separated and then put through a cleansing process. The infill can then be used in future fields or used as materials for different products.

Shaw has recycled more than half of a billion pounds of carpet since 2007 and opened two advanced recycling facilities — Evergreen (nylon 6 recycling) and Re2E (Reclaim to Energy). Today, Shaw provides hundreds of fully certified Cradle to Cradle flooring products.

Our synthetic grass products need very little care. For most artificial grass applications, using a leaf blower and water hose to clear lawn and pet debris is enough to keep the surface clean. For golf greens, normal upkeep by your local Southwest Greens representative every 12-18 months is recommended; we will guarantee smooth putts with regular check-ups that include inspecting the areas around the cups for any adjustments and rolling the green.
