How much is artificial grass?
As the popularity of artificial lawn rises, more and more people are naturally enquiring into how much artificial grass costs. Is it even that expensive? Is it just genuine value for money? Do the upfront costs make up for the ease of maintenance? We thought we’d give you an idea of the price of artificial grass – specifically, our Forever Green prices, and how it compares to the cost and overall value of real grass.
The price of artificial grass varies from £8 – £40 per square meter depending on the various factors such as the pile height, stitch rate (density) and the quality of the grass.
Real Grass vs Artificial Grass
Real grass (or sod) is obviously considerably cheaper to install than artificial turf. A standard traditional sod lawn would cost around £4.99 per square metre – with the price likely to decrease (per metre) if you were to buy in bulk for a reasonably sized garden space.
What you have to consider though, is the associated long-term expenses that come with real turf. Sod and turf grass will typically require a lot of maintenance and upkeep costs – the main one of course, being water bill. Additional costs also include that of fertilizing and seeding the grass, or maybe even expenses for a professional gardener – if you prefer to sit on your sofa than attend to your overgrown lawn.
Artificial Lawns minimise both the time and cost of maintaining your garden, which is why it’s becoming such a popular option amongst homeowners. We appreciate that some people prefer the natural, real grass look and feel; and that’s fine. What we would stress, however, is to not be put off by the higher upfront costs of artificial grass, because the future benefits are more than worth the money! Just imagine never having to mow your lawn again…
Even the cheapest artificial lawn will last longer than real turf; so bear that in mind too.
