Yes! Our innovative in-filled polypropylene synthetic turf products are constructed to perform like natural golf course greens, so your ball will react with the same spin and true roll of a natural surface.

Because every project is one-of-a-kind, the time required for installation is driven by factors like weather, landscaping requirements, and the complexity and size of the project. Timelines may also be impacted by accessibility and site preparation demands. Please contact us for an estimate on your particular project.
Inside or outside, the sky's the limit! Southwest Greens of Illinois delivers custom design professionalism for golf greens in a range of sizes and shapes for every client. Backyard golf greens for residential spaces average around 500 square feet, while artificial golf greens for commercial properties or Nicklaus Design golf courses are usually 1,500 square feet. Our outdoor synthetic putting greens are made uniquely for each client, considering available space as well as budget.
Synthetic golf turfs call for a high level of mastery for design and installation. With our roots planted in the golf industry since 1996, we have truly mastered the art of golf construction. Turf blending, undulations, breaks and bunkers name just a few of the design elements key for real looking and rolling golf greens. With so many additional architectural features to think about over a more basic artificial, golf green construction cost averages from $20 to $25 per square foot, more or less based upon region, accessibility and features.
The high quality of the materials we use is a very important factor in delivering an excellent golf green. Our professional products offer the rich, natural green look of real grass as well as the gentle feel and true performance characteristics free of nylon and other popular materials used in many artificial golf greens.
Southwest Greens of Illinois is the recognized leader in the artificial grass industry. Our dedication to research and development allows us to offer the highest quality and most advanced materials on the market today. With a variety of turf products made to simulate the look and feel of natural grass, our custom designs reflect the unique needs, climates and conditions of any area. All Southwest Greens of Illinois installers are required to have received national certifications, guaranteeing that products and expert workmanship will consistently be of the highest quality.
Will the artificial grass decline over time? How tough is the turf?
Southwest Greens of Illinois's first installations are 20 years old or older and continue to have the rich green color and texture of natural grass. Our UV-resistant artificial grass products look and function like new because they are crafted to withstand heavy traffic, extreme weather conditions and temperature fluctuations for all-season use. All installations come complete including a one-year workmanship warranty and manufacturer's warranty that includes fading.
Our synthetic turf is designed to be used and is highly recommended in busy areas or for long-term sporting purposes
Usually, artificial turf is dumped directly into landfills, using up precious space. Shaw offers a better alternative through the Green Edge Recycling Program. Once artificial grass is removed, we are prepared to repurpose it in several different ways including carpet backing, mats, rugs, sheet goods and more.
Sand infill from the artificial grass product is mechanically extracted from the turf, separated and then put through a cleaning process. The infill 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 offers hundreds of fully certified Cradle to Cradle flooring products.
Our artificial grass products need very little care. For most synthetic grass applications, using a leaf blower and water hose to remove lawn and pet debris is enough to keep the surface clear. For golf greens, regular upkeep by your local Southwest Greens of Illinois representative every 12-18 months is recommended; we will ensure smooth putts with regular check-ups that include rolling the green and inspecting the areas around the cups for any adjustments.
Highly trained Southwest Greens of Illinois designers and installers are the only personnel authorized to design and install our artificial turf materials. DIY purchases are available with consultation but will void any installation warranty

turf is odorless, so if any smells do occur,
it’s usually caused by dog urine. Many dogs prefer to use one area of the lawn to do their business,
so sometimes, you can get a little more of a build-up

to help neutralize odors, but there are steps you
can take to ensure there are no lingering odors linger. We advise you use a solution
of equal parts water and white vinegar to spray Fido’s
favorite bathroom area. Let it dry to neutralize any unpleasant odor, if our system was not used.
