Our leadership transcends excellent workmanship; Shaw Industries’ dedicated R&D lab has developed innovations such as the Bolt™ fiber and HydroChill® evaporative cooling technology – a robust combination that ensures excellence and comfort. Southwest Greens of Austin, a wholly-owned subsidiary, is pleased to constantly improve and enhance the work we already do.

THE PERFECT FINISHED PRODUCT
When we claim we are the best in the business, we mean it. We don’t believe in cookie-cutter putting green installations. Southwest Greens of Austin has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We’ve designed and installed over 6,000 golf greens across the world as backyard putting greens, luxurious golf courses, and more.
Here’s a quick glance at how our artificial grass and putting green installation process works:
- A foundation of crushed aggregate, which, unlike concrete, can be wetted and molded to form protection against breaks and ripples.
- Next, we install at least a 1/4 inch cushion pad that helps ball roll and shot absorption, then we install our 1 1/8 inch state-of-the-art polypropylene turf material that is used to synthesize the playability, softness, and the rich green color of real grass.
- The fake grass is then infilled with a combination of fine-coated silica sand to give it the feeling of natural grass.
- Lastly, the tops are rolled to synthesize the feel of a true bent grass green. Choices include the installation of the first and second cuts fringe, sand traps, bunkers, fairways, and roughs.
