THE MASTER OF INSTALLATION TECHNOLOGY
Southwest Greens of Connecticut knows how to bring genuinely great designs to life. Since 1996, we’ve established a reputation for crafting premium golf greens, gaining the attention of more than two dozen top PGA Tour pros who have had Southwest Greens turf installed at their homes.
Architects and contractors count on enterprises that consistently provide professional installations, and those professional relationships are just as vital to us as those with homeowners. Made in the USA by Shaw Industries, a Berkshire Hathaway company, and installed using systems proven for performance, you’ll have the satisfaction and support of a global leader while working with local, value-oriented craftsmen.
Our leadership surpasses premium craftsmanship; Shaw Industries’ devoted R&D team has developed innovations such as the Bolt™ fiber and HydroChill® evaporative cooling technology – a powerful combination that provides distinction and luxury. Southwest Greens of Connecticut, a wholly-owned subsidiary, is proud to continually improve and enhance the work we already do.

THE PERFECT FINISHED PRODUCT
When we claim we are the best in the business, we mean it. We don’t believe in run-of-the-mill putting green installations. Southwest Greens of Connecticut has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We have crafted and installed more than 6,000 golf greens globally as backyard putting greens, magnificent golf courses, and more.
Here’s a quick glance at how our artificial grass and putting green installation process works:
- A base of crushed aggregate, which, unlike concrete, can be wetted and molded to form protection against breaks and waves.
- Next, we install at least a 1/4 inch cushion pad that helps ball roll and shot absorption, then we install our 1 1/8 inch state-of-the-art polypropylene turf material that is used to synthesize the playability, softness, and the rich green color of real grass.
- The synthetic turf is then infilled with a formulation of fine-coated silica sand to give it the feeling of natural grass.
- Finally, the tops are rolled to recreate the effect of a true bent grass green. Options include the installation of the first and second cuts fringe, sand traps, bunkers, fairways, and roughs.
