Synthetic Turf Maintenance

To protect your investment, promote longevity, and keep your synthetic looking as fresh as the day it was installed, Southwest Greens recommends joining our annual Maintenance program, no matter what the application, (Golf Green, lawn, play area, or pet area).

New Installations

Great News! If you schedule a maintenance within the first-year anniversary date of your project completion, Southwest Greens will extend your workmanship warranty by one year. If you continue with Southwest Greens maintenance program for consecutive years, your workmanship warranty could be extended for up to a maximum 10 years.

Maintenance Task

As part of Southwest Greens regular maintenance, the task is simple, make your product shine as close to the original install as possible. This is accomplished by Southwest Greens completing the following steps:

Power Broom or Vacuum surface to remove debris and lift trapped fibers.
Verify all seams are secure and check for and fix raised nails due to freeze/thaw.
Check sand infill levels, (infill if needed – see cost per bag).
Pull weeds and apply weed killer if needed.
Remove discolored green sand and re-top, (1 bag of green sand per 100 sf included-Putting Greens only.
Check, re-align and clean cups – Greens only.
Check conditions of Flags and Flag sticks-Greens only
Sift, Flip, and add sand if requested – Bunkers only.

Mold or Moss Problems

Keeping your surface dry as possible will prevent any mold or moss from developing, but in our weather regions this can be impossible at times. As a preventive measure, Southwest Greens recommends regular treatments using a product called Wet-n-Forget. This product can be purchased on or through most of your local hardware stores. Please follow the manufacturer’s instructions for mixing and applying. Repeating applications at least twice a month on dry sunny days, should prevent any excessive growth during the rain periods.
