What maintenance is required for Southwest Greens synthetic turf products?
Our synthetic turf products require very little maintenance. For most synthetic turf applications, using a leaf blower and water hose to remove lawn and pet debris is enough to keep the surface clean. For golf greens, routine maintenance by your local SWG 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.
Who can install a Southwest Greens turf product?
Highly trained SWG designers and installers are the only personnel certified to design and install our turf materials. DIY purchases are available with consultation but will void any installation warranty.
Will the synthetic turf fade over time? How durable is the turf? Typically, how long will it last?
Southwest Greens' original installations are 20 years old or older and continue to have the rich green color and texture of natural grass. Our UV-resistant synthetic grass products look and perform like new because they are engineered to withstand heavy traffic, extreme weather conditions and temperature fluctuations for year-round use. All installations come complete with a one-year workmanship warranty and manufacturer's warranty that covers fading.
Our artifical turf is designed to be used and is highly reccomended in high-traffic areas or for long-term sporting purposes.
