Southwest Greens International has built a reputation for installing synthetic turf solutions since 1996. Beginning with the most complex surfaces — professionally driven golf greens — the business has seen a surge in development worldwide. Particularly appreciated in communities where aesthetics, functionality, and low maintenance are critical, artificial turf is a growing sector that adds value to commercial and residential clients.

As a division of Shaw Industries, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, Southwest Greens offers turnkey solutions, vertically integrated supply chain dynamics, scalable operations, and industry standards for specs, testing, and warranties. A strong portfolio of well-known brands and celebrities attests to the professionalism, drive, and creativity necessary in today’s business climate. Friends are essential, and a project roster is available when references are needed.

Southwest Greens provides a durable landscape solution with a pro-rated 15-year warranty and produced with the utmost quality resin and UV Protection. We are confident we can offer benefits in various landscape applications (residential lawns, commercial lawns, playgrounds, dog parks, golf courses/ practice areas; putting greens, courtyards, rooftops, event spaces), with the most extensive product portfolio on the market.
