Yes! Our advanced in-filled polypropylene synthetic turf products are designed to function like natural golf course greens, so your ball will provide the same spin and true roll of a natural surface. Whether you are chipping in your backyard putting green from two yards or on our Nicklaus Designed course from 200 yards, our artificial putting greens will hold a shot as well as a natural grass green, guaranteeing that your ball will not bounce or wobble as it would on a nylon surface.
Since every project is unique, the length of time required for installation is calculated using factors like weather, landscaping requirements, and the complexity and size of the project. Timeframes may also be affected by accessibility and site preparation needs. Please contact us for an estimate on your particular project.
Inside or outside, the sky's the limit! Southwest Greens of Connecticut provides custom design expertise for golf greens in a wide selection of sizes and configurations for every client. Backyard golf greens for residential spaces are normally around 500 square feet, while artificial golf greens for commercial space or Nicklaus Design golf courses average 1,500 square feet. Our outdoor synthetic putting greens are made uniquely for each client, taking into account available space as well as budget.
Synthetic golf turfs demand a high level of expertise 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 natural looking and rolling golf greens. With so many additional architectural features to consider over a more basic artificial turf, golf green construction cost averages from $20 to $25 per square foot, more or less based upon region, accessibility and features.
The superior quality of the materials we use is a crucially important factor in achieving a top-of-the-line golf green. Our superior products offer the vibrant, 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 synthetic golf greens.

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

Southwest Greens of Connecticut's earliest installations are 20 years old or older and still embody the rich green color and texture of real 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 grass is engineered to be used and is highly recommended in high-traffic areas or for long-term sporting purposes.

In most instances, artificial grass is disposed directly into landfills using up precious space. Shaw offers a desirable 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 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 different products.

Shaw has recycled over half of a billion pounds of carpet since 2007 and opened two cutting-edge 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 grass products necessitate very little maintenance. 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, routine maintenance by your local Southwest Greens of Connecticut representative every 12-18 months is recommended; we will guarantee 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 Connecticut designers and installers are the only personnel certified to design and install our artificial grass materials. DIY purchases are available with consultation but will void any installation warranty.
