For any home or property, your outdoor space creates the first impression to the public. Any outdoor space that offers a lush green finish is always the perfect first impression you can give your home or property. But growing natural grass around your home takes time and a lot of effort, especially if you live in a weed-prone or wet area. Plus, trying to nurse dried out natural grass back to life can be challenging. These (and more) are reasons why artificial grass offers the perfect solution for any outdoor space, no matter the ground’s condition. It is easy to lay and maintain and offers all the aesthetic appeal you want in your perfect grass layout. But how much does artificial grass cost?
Artificial Grass Cost
First of all, it is essential to note that there are different types of artificial grass, all available at different costs, from installation to maintenance. The most important thing is to ensure that you make an informed decision on the type you want. To have a professional installation of luxury artificial grass you should expect to pay approx £50/£60 per square metre. When you shop around you will find that it can be done cheaper, but in an industry where you definitely get what you pay for you will realise that a cheap installation will impact on quality – either quality of the grass, or the installation, usually both.
Other Costs To Consider
As we have already indicated, there is hardly any fixed cost for installing artificial grass, as so many factors combine to determine your expenses and final price. Some of them include the type of artificial grass, the kind of surface you want to work on, etc. If you’re working on a paved or concrete surface, for example, you can expect the process to be comparatively simple. That is because you may only need to clear or clean that space to ensure you have no drainage issues.
If you’re working on an already existing lawn, the process can become a bit more complicated, as you’ll have first to get rid of the existing lawn. Doing this will increase the installation cost. Additionally, if you’re working on an uneven surface, you will need to level the ground before installing the grass to give it a more even and crisp appearance. And this will also increase the installation cost.
Furthermore, the quality of artificial grass will affect the price. Latest ranges of premium grass usually cost more, as they have better quality, richer colour and texture, and look identical natural grass. Cheap, DIY grass from your local bargain store may cost less but most look less authentic plus you will still need somebody to lay it for you.
