Synthetic golf turfs require a high level of expertise for design and installation. Since our beginnings in the golf industry in 1996, we have truly refined the art of golf construction.

With so many additional architectural features to consider over a more basic artificial turf, golf green construction cost averages from $20 to $25 per square foot, more or less depending on region, accessibility and features.

Will the artificial grass fade over time? How durable is the turf?
Southwest Greens of Austin's original installations are 20 years old or older and still embody the vibrant green color and texture of genuine grass. Our UV-resistant artificial turf products look and perform like new because they are designed to withstand heavy traffic, extreme weather conditions and temperature fluctuations for year-round use. All installations come complete alongside a one-year workmanship warranty and manufacturer's warranty that covers fading.

Generally, artificial grass is disposed directly into landfills, taking up precious space. Shaw offers an improved alternative through the Green Edge Recycling Program. Once artificial turf is removed, we can repurpose it in a wide range of ways including carpet backing, mats, rugs, sheet goods and more.
Sand infill from the artificial turf product is mechanically extracted from the turf, separated and then put through a cleansing process. The filling can then be used in future fields or used as materials for different products.
Shaw has recycled upwards of half of a billion pounds of carpet since 2007 and opened two state-of-the-art recycling facilities — Evergreen (nylon 6 recycling) and Re2E (Reclaim to Energy). Today, Shaw provides hundreds of fully certified Cradle to Cradle flooring products.
Our artificial grass products require very little maintenance. For most artificial grass applications, using a leaf blower and water hose to dispose of lawn and pet debris is all you need to keep the surface clear. For golf greens, routine maintenance by your local Southwest Greens of Austin representative every 12-18 months is recommended; we will guarantee smooth putts with regular check-ups that include rolling the green and inspecting the areas around the cups for any adjustments.
Skilled Southwest Greens of Austin designers and installers are the only personnel certified to design and install our artificial grass materials. DIY purchases are available with consultation but will void any installation warranty
