Artificial Grass and Turf Installation Cost Guide

Being a homeowner comes with many advantages, but it also means taking on a number of responsibilities. One of the most time-consuming responsibilities is lawn maintenance. This involves not only keeping grass watered and healthy, but ensuring that it gets trimmed regularly as well. In some cities, failure to care for one's lawn can actually result in the homeowner receiving a citation. Unfortunately, not all homeowners have the time and resources to care for a lawn. For this reason, many have turned to the option of installing artificial grass.

Benefits of Artificial Grass

Artificial grass is made out of a synthetic material and is used in place of traditional, natural grass. The artificial material looks and feels similar to real grass yet requires very little maintenance once installed. This helps homeowners to achieve the lush, green yard they have always wanted without all of the tedious work that comes along with it. 

Since synthetic grass doesn't need to be watered or cut, homeowners don't need to take many steps to keep the lawn maintained. All they really need to do is to ensure that harmful or damaging chemicals are not used on the synthetic materials. The rest of the yard will take care of itself.

Costs to Install Artificial Grass and Turf

Many homeowners would love to have artificial grass on their lawns, but they worry about the cost. However, many are pleasantly surprised to find that the costs for installing such turf are actually quite reasonable. Most homeowners spend around $4,000 for the installation. While this may seem like a lot, it is important to consider the fact that such synthetic grass is meant to last a lifetime. Furthermore, the money saved on lawn care supplies can easily offset the cost of the installation over time.

Of course, there are many factors that can influence the overall cost of the artificial turf installation. The major contributing factor is the size of the lawn where the turf is being installed. The larger the lawn, the more expensive the cost will generally be. Variations in regional pricing can also affect the cost of the artificial grass installation, so calling around and requesting quotes from various companies is recommended to get the best deal. Still, many homeowners will agree that the benefits outweigh the cost of such installation.
