What maintenance is required for Southwest Greens synthetic turf products?
Very little. For golf greens, we recommend that you call us for routine maintenance every 12 to 18 months, which includes rolling the green to ensure a smooth putt, and inspecting the areas around the cups to make any necessary adjustments. In the meantime, all you need to do is use a leaf blower to remove debris and leaves. For other turf applications, just use your leaf blower and garden hose periodically to clear off debris and clean the surface.

Will the synthetic turf fade over time? How durable is the turf? Typically, how long will it last?
We have been installing synthetic turf for golf greens, lawns and other commercial applications since 1996. Our original installations continue to have the rich green color and texture of natural grass. Our products are UV resistant and come with a manufacturer’s warranty that covers fading. All Southwest Greens turf applications (or products) come complete with a 1-year workmanship warranty and a 5-8 year manufacturer’s warranty on the turf. They are engineered to withstand heavy traffic and extreme weather conditions, including fluctuations in temperature.

How is Southwest Greens different from other synthetic golf green and turf companies?
Southwest Greens is considered the leader in the synthetic turf industry. The reason for our success is threefold. First, we lead the industry in research and development. We use only the highest quality and most advanced materials on the market today. Once installed, our polypropylene turf products replicate the look and feel of natural grass. Second, we do not take a cookie-cutter approach. We custom design your project based on your desires, climate and conditions of the area. We work closely with our clients from day one to make sure the final product meets all their expectations. Third, we are the only company that requires its installers to receive national certification. Our Pro System and rigorous certification program are your guarantees that our products, workmanship and customer service will be of the highest quality.

What makes a Southwest Greens golf green better than one made of nylon?
The quality of the material we use is extremely important in achieving a top flight golf green. Why not nylon? Simply stated, it doesn’t offer the natural rich green look, soft feel and true performance characteristics of our Pro System product. This means your ball will roll and react on this surface more naturally when you are putting and chipping. The turf actually changes like natural turf when the climate changes. When it is warm and dry, the Pro System speeds up. In cooler, wetter climates, the Pro System is slower. You don’t get this kind of “realistic performance” with nylon surfaces.

How long does it take to install a synthetic golf green or other synthetic turf product?
The time it takes to install a synthetic green product depends on the size and complexity of the project, landscaping requirements and weather conditions. Most residential projects are completed within a day or two. More complicated installations will take longer. Please contact us for an estimate on your particular project.
