About Southwest Greens of New Mexico’s Artificial Turf Installations

Southwest Greens a division of Shaw Industries, a Berkshire- Hathaway company, is the exclusive manufacturer of our turf grass products. All of our turf grass products are made in the USA.

Out of Bounddsfgs, Inc., dba Southwest Greens of New Mexico and El Paso owned by brothers Scott and Steve Forster. Scott Forster is a Class A, PGA professional and has worked in the golf business since 1993. He was first introduced into artificial turf when working as the director of golf for Alto Lakes Golf and Country Club. Southwest Greens International was hired by Scott to install an artificial tee line on the country clubs driving range. After seeing the quality of the products and professionalism of the installation Scott started thinking of all the possibilities for artificial turf in the golf business and in private residences, “if most houses have carpet in them, why not artificial grass…outdoor carpet”. This began his journey to be part of the best synthetic turf surfaces company in the world.

Steve Forster became Scott’s business partner in March of 2013. Steve having lived and worked in Rio Rancho for the last 18 years, he decided to go into business with his brother as he could see the benefits and opportunity of artificial grass in his desert community.
