What Affects the Price of Artificial Grass?
Without a doubt, “what is the price of artificial grass” is the first question that comes to mind when discussing artificial grass. We wish that we could give you a definitive answer, but the truth is that every yard is different, with its own unique requirements. As such, the only way to get an accurate price for your artificial turf installation is to schedule a contractor to come measure and assess your yard. Then, he/she can give you a true estimate.
You’ll find many different articles giving a price range of somewhere between $8 and $12 per square foot installed. You may also find other companies advertising a specific price on their website. However, a finite price cannot be given over the phone nor can it be guaranteed in an ad, so be certain to read the fine print of these advertisements (they are usually a bait and switch type of thing). Different factors can affect the cost, and most of them can only be taken into consideration on site. Such things include:
- The size of your yard – the amount of turf you need to purchase will determine the cost per square foot.
- Hills, slopes and the terrain – steep hills and slopes can be difficult and result in extra labor. Of course, this is not a blanket statement for every yard with a hill. It really is a case by case basis that will be determined during your estimate.
- Trees and other obstacles – in order to help make your artificial grass look natural, it is important to carefully install around a tree and its roots. Pavers are another common obstacle that requires extra attention. These intricate details can be difficult, contributing to the overall cost of installation.
The type of grass you choose also affects the price. Like most consumer products, ProGreen offers a wide variety of different grass types that can appeal to variety of different budgets. The price per square foot is typically based on the face weight, the more ounces per square yard, the more it will cost you.
