THE PERFECT FINISHED PRODUCT
When we declare we are the best in the business, we mean it. We don’t believe in cookie-cutter putting green installations. Southwest Greens of Western Canada has perfected the art and science of artificial grass installation. We’ve constructed and installed over 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 undulations.
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 replicate the rich green color, softness, and playability of real grass.
The artificial grass is then packed with a formulation of fine-coated silica sand to give it the impression of natural grass.
Lastly, the upper layer is rolled to synthesize the feel of a true bent grass green. Choices include the installation of the first and second cuts fringe, sand traps, bunkers, fairways, and roughs.
