EXTEND THE SEASON
Make the most of your event season at your upscale Austin locations with artificial grass landscaping. Our turf offers first-rate drainage, reliable footing, and minimal to no maintenance. Common grounds, outdoor venues, and wedding destinations can all be modernized by synthetic turf. Ideal for congested commercial areas or event-designed amenities, the positive environmental impacts of artificial grass and turf solutions translate into considerable cost savings over natural sod maintenance for real grass.
Shaw Industries, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., and Southwest Greens International work together to assemble a powerful team. Shaw is committed to designing the most appealing and sustainable flooring and synthetic grass surfaces across the globe, and Southwest Greens of Austin follows that example.
Rooted in our passion to continuously enhance every quality of our business, the Shaw Green Edge directs everything we do. From holding the highest ethical standards to safeguarding the health and well-being of our people and our communities, Southwest Greens of Austin keeps striving to lead the industry. We focus on saving energy by recycling raw materials, creating cradle to cradle products that can be remanufactured repeatedly.
HydroChill® is a proprietary non-toxic, smell-free treatment that cools surface temperatures greatly when hydrated. Produced after years of analysis through independent field testing, this solution indicates our commitment to leadership and raising the bar.
Our patented advancement to the turf’s filling offers an average cooling range of 30-50 degrees, operating normally when watered wet by irrigation, rainfall, and dew. Feet and paws love the difference Southwest Greens of Austin supplies.
