Will the synthetic grass fade over time? How durable is the turf?

Southwest Greens of Augusta's original installations are 20 years old or older and have maintained the vivid green color and texture of genuine grass. Our UV-resistant synthetic grass products look and function like new because they are crafted to withstand heavy traffic, harsh weather conditions and temperature fluctuations for all-season use. All installations come complete with a one-year workmanship warranty and manufacturer's warranty that covers fading.

Our artificial turf is developed to be used and is highly recommended in high-traffic areas or for long-term sporting purposes.

Generally, synthetic turf is disposed of directly into landfills taking up precious space. Shaw offers an improved alternative through the Green Edge Recycling Program. Once synthetic grass is removed, we are prepared to repurpose it in several different ways including sheet goods, rugs, carpet backing, mats and more.

Sand infill from the synthetic turf product is mechanically taken out from the turf, separated and then put through a cleansing process. The filling 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 provides hundreds of fully certified Cradle to Cradle flooring products.

Our artificial turf products require very little maintenance. For most artificial turf applications, using a leaf blower and water hose to clear lawn and pet debris is sufficient to keep the surface clear. For golf greens, normal upkeep by your local Southwest Greens of Augusta representative every 12-18 months is recommended; we will guarantee smooth putts with consistent check-ups that include rolling the green and inspecting the areas around the cups for any adjustments.
Skilled Southwest Greens of Augusta 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.
