The 13,000 square-foot Sports Science Laboratory includes cutting-edge testing equipment and a full-time staff creating and testing engineered synthetic turf solutions for many applications and markets.
Synthetic turf products are designed and tested around athlete/surface and ball/surface interactions to ensure the right combination of durability, performance, and safety are met. Southwest Greens also offers over 18,000 square feet of on-site, outdoor field testing plots, so our synthetic green is not only subjected to simulated testing, but real-world exposure. Each blade has a realistic luster without fading in the sun, guaranteeing our synthetic grass products will never wilt and are always impeccable, unlike real grass. Our environmentally-friendly products look, feel, and spring back just like real grass. Plus, Southwest Greens Charlotte's signature collection of synthetic grass are lead-free and 100 percent recyclable!
EASE OF MAINTENANCE FOR LUXURY LIVING
Save time – never throw away leftover lawn clippings again! Simply keep the artificial grass surface clean with a sweeper or leaf blower. Maintain it on your own or entrust it to us to routinely check infill levels. With over thirty heights and designs to choose from, Southwest Greens Charlotte synthetic turf solutions are meticulously constructed to simulate the true look, feel, and performance of real grass. Southwest Greens Charlotte’s products are tough, resist matting, do not diminish in the sun, and are rugged enough to handle heavy foot traffic. Spongy and natural yet incredibly durable, synthetic grass is excellent for severe climates and locations with heavy use. Always green and vibrant, our grass is made of a distinctive polyethylene blend of long-bladed, grass fibers built to last a lifetime.
The nature of our products protects against itching, sneezing, and stains associated with real grass. Our synthetic grass solutions eliminate the need to expose friends, family, and pets to damaging chemicals necessary to treat real grass. Southwest Greens Charlotte artificial turf can also be designed for extra-soft, fall-safe ASTM-compliant landings.
Do you have pets? Our turf backing system is designed with urethane technology and has superior flow-through for drainage without the mud. Smells and patchy wilting will be a thing of the past. Artificial turf also keeps fleas and ticks away, giving you peace of mind while saving money.
