EXTEND THE SEASON
Magnify your event season at your upscale locations with artificial grass landscaping. Our turf provides superior drainage, reliable footing, and minimal care. Common grounds, outdoor venues, and wedding destinations can all be modernized by synthetic turf. Perfect for high-traffic commercial areas or event-designed amenities, the environmental benefits of artificial grass and turf solutions translate into significant cost savings over natural sod maintenance.
Shaw Industries, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc, and Southwest Greens International come together to make a powerful team. Shaw is committed to creating the most beautiful and sustainable flooring and artificial turf surfaces in the world, and Southwest Greens follow suit.
Rooted in our drive to continuously improve every aspect of our business, the Shaw Green Edge guides everything we do. From maintaining the highest ethical standards to safeguarding the health and well-being of our people and our communities, we continue to strive to be the best. We focus on energy conservation by recycling raw materials, and designing cradle-to-cradle products that can be remanufactured repeatedly.
HydroChill® is a proprietary non-toxic, odorless additive that cools surface temperatures significantly when hydrated. Developed after years of research through independent field testing, this solution demonstrates our commitment to leadership and setting new standards.
Our patented addition to the turf’s infill provides an average cooling range of 30-50 degrees, working naturally when hydrated by irrigation, rainfall, and dew. Feet and paws appreciate the difference Southwest Greens delivers.
