EXTEND THE SEASON
Make the most of your most popular season at your elegant Metro New York facilities with synthetic grass landscaping. Our turf offers first-rate drainage, reliable footing, and minimal to no upkeep. Common grounds, outdoor venues, and wedding locations can all be improved upon with synthetic turf. Ideal for high-traffic commercial areas or event-designed amenities, the environmental benefits 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 come together to create a terrific team. Shaw is devoted to creating the most appealing and sustainable flooring and artificial grass surfaces in the world, and Southwest Greens of Metro New York follows that example.

We focus on energy conservation by recycling raw materials, developing cradle to cradle products that can be recreated many times.
