EXTEND THE SEASON
Magnify your most popular season at your upscale Vancouver locations with synthetic grass landscaping. Our turf has the best drainage, sure footing, and minimal to no upkeep. Common grounds, outdoor venues, and wedding venues can all be improved upon with synthetic turf. Perfect for congested commercial areas or event-designed facilities, the environmental benefits of artificial grass and turf solutions translate into considerable cost savings over natural sod maintenance for real grass.
Shaw Industries, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., and Southwest Greens International come together to make a terrific team. Shaw is devoted to creating the most beautiful and sustainable flooring and synthetic grass surfaces around the world, and Southwest Greens Vancouver (Second Generation Landscapes) follows their lead.
Rooted in our passion to continuously improve every detail of our business, the Shaw Green Edge directs everything we do. From holding the highest ethical standards to protecting the health and wellness of our people and our communities, Southwest Greens Vancouver (Second Generation Landscapes) continues to strive to be the best. We focus on energy efficiency by recycling raw materials and developing cradle-to-cradle products that can be remade repeatedly.
HydroChill® is a proprietary non-toxic, odorless treatment that cools surface temperatures significantly when hydrated. Developed after years of scrutiny through independent field testing, this solution demonstrates our commitment to leadership and raising the bar.
Our patented addition to the turf’s filling provides an average cooling range of 30-50 degrees, working naturally when watered wet by irrigation, rainfall, and dew. Feet and paws enjoy the difference Southwest Greens Vancouver (Second Generation Landscapes) supplies.
