The size of your garden will greatly influence your cost
Whilst the cost of artificial grass varies depending on a number of factors, one of the biggest influences on price is the size of your garden. Larger gardens will generally require more artificial grass, which means that the overall cost will be higher. So if you’re on a tight budget, it’s worth considering every artificial price point before making a decision.
For guidance purposes, the below table gives you an idea of what the cost would be depending on three different garden sizes: 25m2 / 50m2 / 75m2
To suit every type of budget, we also provided three different price points: budget-friendly grass, mid-range grass & luxury grass.
|Price per m2||Small garden (25m2)||Medium-sized garden (50m2)||Large garden (75m2)|
How much does it cost to install artificial grass?
Installation costs can vary depending on your needs as well as the type of artificial grass you’re installing, however, if you’re looking to keep the costs low – you can actually install it yourself! Installing an artificial lawn yourself doesn’t mean you have to scrimp on quality, you just have to be a little more prepared.
We understand that not many people have experience in installing turf, which is why Artificial Grass Direct have put together an easy to follow step-by-step instruction manual for you to follow. The instructions cover the steps you need to take, the equipment you may need to purchase, a fitting guide and how to lay the artificial grass on different surfaces.
The secret to flawless-looking artificial grass is preparation. The grass adheres differently to soil and solid floor, so do your research and prepare the ground accordingly before the grass arrives.
