Synthetic golf greens demand a high level of expertise for design and installation. With our roots planted in the golf industry since 1996, we have truly perfected the art of golf construction. Turf blending, undulations, breaks and bunkers name just a few of the design elements crucial for natural looking and rolling golf greens. With so many additional architectural features to consider over a more basic artificial, the cost of construction for our golf greens ranges from $20 to $25 per square foot, more or less depending on region, accessibility and features.
The high quality of the materials we use is a crucially important factor in achieving a top-flight golf green. Our quality products deliver the lush, natural green look of natural grass as well as the soft feel and true performance characteristics lacking in nylon and other typical materials used in many synthetic golf greens.

Will the synthetic turf deteriorate over time? How durable is the turf?

Southwest Greens of Eastern Washington's original installations are 20 years old or older and have maintained the vibrant green color and texture of genuine grass. Our UV-resistant synthetic grass products look and perform like new because they are engineered to withstand heavy traffic, harsh weather conditions and temperature fluctuations for year-round use. All installations come complete with a one-year workmanship warranty and manufacturer's warranty that includes fading.

Our artificial grass is engineered to be used and is highly recommended in high-traffic areas or for long-term sporting purposes.

In most cases, synthetic turf is disposed of directly into landfills using up precious space. Shaw offers an improved alternative through the Green Edge Recycling Program. Once synthetic grass is removed, we can repurpose it in a variety of ways including sheet goods, rugs, carpet backing, mats and more.

Sand filling from the synthetic grass product is mechanically taken out from the turf, separated and then put through a cleaning process. The filling can then be used in future fields or used as materials for other products.

Shaw has recycled over half of a billion pounds of carpet since 2007 and opened two advanced recycling facilities — Evergreen (nylon 6 recycling) and Re2E (Reclaim to Energy). Today, Shaw provides hundreds of fully certified Cradle to Cradle flooring products.

Our synthetic grass products necessitate very little maintenance. For most artificial turf applications, using a leaf blower and water hose to clear lawn and pet debris is all you need to keep the surface clear. For golf greens, routine maintenance by your local Southwest Greens of Eastern Washington representative every 12-18 months is recommended; we will ensure smooth putts with consistent check ups that include inspecting the areas around the cups for any adjustments and rolling the green.
Highly trained Southwest Greens of Eastern Washington engineers and installers are the only personnel certified to design and install our artificial turf materials. DIY purchases are available with consultation but will void any installation warranty.
