In today’s post we’re looking at a popular question that we get asked a lot – how much does artificial grass cost? It’s hard to give a ballpoint figure because the prices can vary, these variations can be based on the size of your garden, the type of artificial grass you require and whether or not you need an underlay to help with drainage, depending on how good your surface is.
Keep in mind however that artificial grass is a great alternative to real grass. With a real lawn you’re looking at plenty of maintenance including mowing, watering and using chemicals to keep weeds and pests out of the way, such as pesticides, fungicides and herbicides. This works out expensive over time as well as exhausting! Well, artificial grass takes that away by giving you a fresh, lush green lawn all year round, no bald, muddy patches – just a beautiful lawn ready for sitting on.
Artificial turf isn’t just used in gardens either it’s used on sports fields and patios, and some even use it indoors for a child’s bedroom or a games room, so it’s definitely worth the investment. It’s such a versatile floor covering that it could be used in any setting, some that may even surprise you!
ARTIFICIAL TURF CAN BE AS EXPENSIVE OR AS CHEAP AS YOU NEED IT TO BE
There are a few things you’re going to have to think about and these are initially things like the groundwork, any underlay needed, the work (labour) and of course, the grass itself. There’s artificial grass and there’s artificial grass, and as with some products you buy, there’s a choice of ranges starting from cheap to expensive. The basic, thin artificial grass can cost as little as £5 per metre, but a better made one that’s thicker, more resilient, stain resistant and UV protected one will cost more. It’s the difference between a thin carpet and an Axminister with Scotchgard, it’s entirely up to you what you choose and what your budget is. You can pay as little or as much as you want.
YOU’LL SAVE MONEY IN THE LONG RUN
A really good grass isn’t cheap, however in many ways you get what you pay for. In the long run we think it’s a worthwhile investment, especially when you take into consideration the savings you’ll make in mowing, watering, chemicals and utilities, depending on what your mower uses (either diesel or electricity). You’ll also spend less time looking after your garden, so you can spend more time simply enjoying it. And keep in mind it’ll look amazing all year round with no muddy patches, or bald areas where the dog’s been playing. It’s a cost that pays back in the end.
