THE PERFECT FINISHED PRODUCT
When we say we are the best in the business, we mean it. We don’t believe in cookie-cutter putting green installations. Southwest Greens Northern CA West has conquered the art and science of artificial grass installation. We’ve designed and installed more than 6,000 golf greens around the globe as backyard putting greens, luxurious 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 dampened 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 comes our 1 1/8 inch advanced polypropylene turf material that is used to synthesize the rich green color, softness, and playability of real grass.
The synthetic turf is then filled with a mixture of fine-coated silica sand to give it the impression of real grass.
Lastly, the upper layer is 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.
