Will the artificial turf decline over time? How durable is the turf?

Southwest Greens of Asheville's first installations are 20 years old or older and have maintained the vibrant green color and texture of real grass. Our UV-resistant artificial grass products look and work like new because they are engineered to withstand heavy traffic, harsh weather conditions and temperature fluctuations for year-round use. All installations come complete including a one-year workmanship warranty and manufacturer's warranty that covers fading.

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

Usually, synthetic grass is disposed of directly into landfills, taking up precious space. Shaw offers a desirable alternative through the Green Edge Recycling Program. Once artificial grass is removed, we are able to repurpose it in a variety of ways including sheet goods, rugs, carpet backing, mats and more.

Sand infill from the artificial turf product is mechanically removed from the turf, separated and then put through a cleaning process. The filling can then be used in future fields or used as materials for different products.

Shaw has recycled more than half of a billion pounds of carpet since 2007 and opened two advanced recycling facilities — Evergreen (nylon 6 recycling) and Re2E (Reclaim to Energy). Today, Shaw supplies hundreds of fully certified Cradle to Cradle flooring products.

Our synthetic turf products need very little maintenance. For most synthetic turf applications, using a leaf blower and water hose to clear lawn and pet debris is all you need to keep the surface clear. For golf greens, normal care by your local Southwest Greens of Asheville 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.
Highly trained Southwest Greens of Asheville designers and installers are the only personnel certified to design and install our artificial turf materials. DIY purchases are available with consultation but will void any installation warranty

There are a lot of reasons that artificial grass is a great option for Asheville pet owners! First and foremost, it's much easier to care for than real grass — you won't have to worry about trimming, saving you valuable time and money. Additionally, artificial grass is more tough than natural grass, so it can withstand pets playing. Plus, artificial grass is chemical-free and safe, making it safe for your pets.

It's not easy for fleas, ticks, and other pests to survive in the artificial turf. While we can’t guarantee that your yard will be completely free of pests, you can count on them to be virtually eliminated. Because there’s no soil to support their nesting, you should keep an eye out for any accumulation of leaves or debris that could make a good breeding environment for fleas and ticks. As long as you maintain your artificial lawn regularly, there will be barely any pests.

Indeed, our synthetic grass looks and feels just like natural grass, so your pets will be able to play on it like they would a regular grass lawn. They can roll around on the grass to their heart's content!

The synthetic turf we offer is designed to be resilient and able to withstand wear and tear, so it can withstand digging without getting ruined. However, if your furry friends are relentless differs, we recommend taking measures to deter them from digging through the artificial grass.

Yes, cleaning fake grass is straightforward! You can simply spray it down with water to remove any debris. For more thorough cleaning, you can use a specialized artificial grass cleaner and a brush to clean the grass. Take a look at our complete cleaning guide for more tips.

Artificial grass is odorless, so if any smells do occur, it’s usually caused by animal waste. Many dogs prefer to use one area of the lawn to do their business, so sometimes, you can get a little more of a concentration of odor. Southwest Green's pet-turf system is designed to help neutralize odors, but there are steps you can take to ensure no smells persist. We advise you use a solution of equal parts H2O and vinegar to spray Fido’s favorite bathroom area. Let it dry to neutralize any unpleasant odor, if the SWG system was not used.
Our top-quality artificial turf is designed to be resilient and lasting, with a life expectancy of up to 20 years with proper maintenance. However, the lifespan of your grass may depend on factors such as the traffic and how well it's maintained. Our sun-resistant synthetic turf products look and function like new because they are built to withstand lots of traffic, inclement weather, and changes in temperature for all-year use. All installs come complete with a 1-year workmanship warranty and a builder's warranty that covers fading and discoloration.

The cost of synthetic grass for pets can fluctuate depending on factors such as the dimensions of your yard and the type of grass you choose. We offer a variety of synthetic grass solutions to fit different financial plans and needs, so we recommend contacting us for a customized quote.

While it's possible to put in pet turf by yourself, we recommend seeking the services of a professional to ensure that the job is done accurately. Our professional team can help you create and put in place a pet-friendly synthetic grass solution that meets your particular preferences and taste.
