Inside or outside, the sky's the limit! Southwest Greens of Houston delivers custom design professionalism for golf greens in varying sizes and configurations for every client. Backyard golf greens for residential spaces average around 500 square feet, while artificial golf greens for commercial projects or Nicklaus Design golf courses are usually 1,500 square feet. Our outdoor synthetic putting greens are made uniquely for each client, taking into account available space as well as budget.
Artificial turfs call for a high level of mastery for design and installation. Since our beginnings in the golf industry in 1996, we have truly refined the art of golf construction. Turf blending, undulations, breaks and bunkers name just a few of the design elements key for authentic looking and rolling golf greens. With so many additional architectural features to think about over a more basic synthetic lawn, 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 superior quality of the materials we use is a very important factor in delivering a top-flight golf green. Our superior products offer the rich, natural green look of genuine grass as well as the gentle feel and true performance characteristics free of nylon and other typical materials used in many synthetic golf greens.

Will the synthetic grass decline over time? How tough is the turf?

Southwest Greens of Houston's original installations are 20 years old or older and still embody the rich green color and texture of natural grass. Our UV-resistant artificial turf products look and function like new because they are crafted to withstand heavy traffic, harsh weather conditions and temperature fluctuations for year-round use. All installations come complete alongside a one-year workmanship warranty and manufacturer's warranty that covers fading.

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

Usually, artificial grass is disposed directly into landfills, using up precious space. Shaw offers a better alternative through the Green Edge Recycling Program. Once artificial turf is removed, we are prepared to repurpose it in several different ways including sheet goods, rugs, carpet backing, mats and more.

Sand filling from the artificial turf product is mechanically removed 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 more than 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 provides hundreds of fully certified Cradle to Cradle flooring products.

Our artificial turf products need very little care. For most artificial grass applications, using a leaf blower and water hose to dispose of lawn and pet debris is enough to keep the surface clear. For golf greens, normal upkeep by your local Southwest Greens of Houston 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.
Professional Southwest Greens of Houston engineers 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.
