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 Tucson has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We’ve built and installed over 6,000 golf greens around the globe 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 foundation of crushed aggregate, which, unlike concrete, can be dampened and molded to form protection against breaks and ripples.
- Next, we install at least a 1/4 inch cushion pad that helps ball roll and shot absorption, then comes our 1 1/8 inch state-of-the-art polypropylene turf material that is used to synthesize the vivid green color, softness, and playability of real grass.
- The turf is then filled with a mixture of fine-coated silica sand to give it the touch and feel of real grass.
- Finally, the tops are rolled to recreate the effect of a true bent grass green. Options include the installation of the first and second cuts fringe, sand traps, bunkers, fairways, and roughs.
