EXTEND THE SEASON
Magnify your peak season at your luxury Detroit and all of Michigan businesses with synthetic grass landscaping. Our turf has superior drainage, reliable footing, and very little to no upkeep. Common grounds, outdoor venues, and wedding destinations can all be upgraded using synthetic turf. Ideal for high-traffic commercial areas or event-designed facilities, the positive environmental impacts of artificial grass and turf solutions translate into considerable cost savings over natural sod maintenance for real grass.
Shaw Industries, an affiliate of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., and Southwest Greens International cooperate to create a powerful team. Shaw is dedicated to developing the most luxurious and sustainable flooring and synthetic grass surfaces across the globe, and Southwest Greens of Michigan follows their lead.
Grounded in our desire to continuously improve every detail of our business, the Shaw Green Edge advises everything we do. From holding the highest ethical standards to protecting the health and safety of our people and our communities, Southwest Greens of Michigan continues to strive to lead the industry. We focus on saving energy by recycling raw materials and developing cradle-to-cradle products that can be remade many times.
HydroChill® is a proprietary non-toxic, smell-free treatment that cools surface temperatures greatly when hydrated. Produced after years of scrutiny through independent field testing, this invention demonstrates our dedication to leadership and raising expectations.
Our patented addition to the turf’s filling provides an average cooling range of 30-50 degrees, working naturally when hydrated by irrigation, rainfall, and dew. Feet and paws appreciate the difference Southwest Greens of Michigan provides.
