One of the most frequently asked questions is “What does artificial turf cost?” Consider this, you never have to buy fertilizer, invest in a lawn mower, or install a sprinkler system. Between the savings in utility costs, water and equipment, it’s easy to justify installing artificial grass.
Turf Pros Solution artificial turf without installation can cost anywhere from $2 to $4 per square foot. Turf Pros Solution artificial turf including installation can cost anywhere from $7 to $10 per square foot. Once it’s down, it’s free for the next 15 to 25 years.
There are 5 main costs to get artificial turf installed:
- Materials (i.e. Artificial Turf, Weed Barrier Fabric, Nails, Infill, etc.)
- Operation Fees (i.e Dump Fees, Fuel Fees, Delivery Fees, etc.)
- Company Overhead (i.e Workers Comp, Gen. Liability Insurance, Advertising, Gen. Office Expenses, etc.)
- Company Profit
Let’s crunch some numbers on a hypothetical 500-square-foot yard.
First year costs:
|Installation ($8.50/sq. ft. average)||$4,250|
|Installation (37 center/sq. ft. average||$185|
|Fertilizing (20 cents/sq. ft.)||$100|
|Gardener/Lawn Man ($20/week)||$960|
So, it would take little over 3 years for maintenance-free artificial grass to recoup its initial cost. If you’re planning on staying put for longer than that, you’ll begin to save money each year. The financial benefit to artificial turf over natural grass is quite simple: The upfront cost is higher, but the cost savings over time make it a much more financially-sound decision.
If the idea of installing synthetic turf has been on your mind, now is a great time to call a professional.
