EXPERTS IN MANUFACTURING
The Shaw Turf division is home to the industry’s biggest and most advanced sports science laboratory for product advancement and testing. The 13,000 square-foot Sports Science Laboratory includes state-of-the-art testing equipment and a full-time staff creating and testing engineered synthetic turf solutions for lots of applications and markets.
Synthetic turf products are developed and tested around athlete/surface and ball/surface interactions to ensure the perfect combination of durability, safety, and performance are met. Southwest Greens also has over 18,000 square feet of on-site, outdoor field testing plots, so our artificial turf is not only subjected to simulated testing, but real-world exposure. Each blade sustains a lifelike shine without fading in the sun, ensuring that our synthetic green products will never fade and are always well-kept, unlike real grass. Our environmentally-friendly products look, feel, and are just as resilient as authentic grass. Plus, Southwest Greens Ontario's signature collection of products are lead-free and 100 percent recyclable!
EASE OF MAINTENANCE FOR LUXURY LIVING
Save time – never get rid of leftover lawn clippings again! Simply keep the artificial grass surface clean with a sweeper or leaf blower. DIY or rely on us to periodically check infill levels. With over thirty heights and styles to choose from, Southwest Greens Ontario artificial grass solutions are intentionally made to simulate the true look, feel, and performance of authentic grass. Southwest Greens Ontario’s products are tough, resist matting, do not deteriorate in the sun, and are tough enough to handle heavy foot traffic. Plush and natural yet remarkably durable, synthetic grass is excellent for harsh climates and locations with heavy traffic. Always green and vibrant, our grass is made of a special polyethylene blend of long-bladed, grass fibers designed to last a lifetime.
The nature of our products stops itching, sneezing, and stains associated with real grass. Our synthetic turf solutions eliminate the need to expose loved ones and pets to harmful chemicals necessary to treat the real thing. Southwest Greens Ontario artificial grass can also be designed for extra-soft, fall-safe ASTM-compliant landings.
Do you have pets? Our turf backing system is constructed with urethane technology allowing superior flow-through for drainage without the mud. Smells and patchy wilting will be behind you. Artificial grass also keeps fleas and ticks away, providing you peace of mind while saving money.
THE GREEN ALTERNATIVE
Environmentally-conscious, Southwest Greens Ontario signature collection of products require less water, eliminate the use of fertilizers and pesticides, and are free of heavy metals. Plus, it’s the only synthetic grass that uses 100 percent recyclable materials! Despite the starting cost, homeowners, business owners, and municipal managers experience long-term savings. Founded on customers’ reports, most estimate a two to five-year return on their artificial turf investment. Installing synthetic turf solutions saves millions of gallons of water annually and lessens pollution byproducts due to mowing machinery use.
