Synthetic golf turfs demand a high level of mastery for design and installation. Since our beginnings in the golf industry in 1996, we have truly mastered 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, golf green construction cost averages from $20 to $25 per square foot, more or less based upon region, accessibility and features.
The top quality of the materials we use is a crucially important factor in delivering a top-of-the-line golf green. Our professional products deliver the rich, natural green look of natural grass as well as the soft feel and true performance characteristics free of nylon and other typical materials used in many artificial golf greens.

Will the artificial grass deteriorate over time? How tough is the turf?

Southwest Greens of Metro New York's earliest installations are 20 years old or older and continue to have the vibrant green color and texture of natural grass. Our UV-resistant synthetic grass products look and perform like new because they are crafted to withstand heavy traffic, harsh weather conditions and temperature fluctuations for all-season use. All installations come complete alongside a one-year workmanship warranty and manufacturer's warranty that covers fading.

Our artificial turf is developed to be used and is highly recommended in busy areas or for long-term sporting purposes.

Most of the time, synthetic grass is dumped directly into landfills using up precious space. Shaw offers a better alternative through the Green Edge Recycling Program. Once synthetic grass is removed, we can repurpose it in several different ways including sheet goods, rugs, carpet backing, mats and more.

Sand infill from the artificial grass product is mechanically removed from the turf, separated and then put through a washing process. The infill 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 supplies hundreds of fully certified Cradle to Cradle flooring products.

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