THE PERFECT FINISHED PRODUCT
When we claim we are the best in the business, we mean it. We don’t believe in cookie-cutter putting green installations. Southwest Greens of Augusta has perfected the art and science of artificial grass installation. We have constructed and installed over 6,000 golf greens worldwide 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 wetted 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 we install our 1 1/8 inch state-of-the-art polypropylene turf material that is used to replicate the playability, softness, and the vibrant green color of real grass.
The turf is then stuffed with a formulation of fine-coated silica sand to give it the touch and feel of natural grass.
Lastly, the tops are 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.
