Interested in replacing your natural grass lawn with synthetic turf? Determining your budget is likely your first step. Yet, if you are like most homeowners across the country, the price to install artificial grass is a completely foreign concept. So, here is what you need to know about the cost to install artificial grass:
- The cost is usually priced per square foot. So, the first thing you need in determining your price is the square footage of your project. If you need help calculating your square footage, we would be happy to offer assistance.
- Prices vary depending on where you live. Being in Southern California, you are in luck. This market is the largest demand for artificial grass in the country. As such, different turf suppliers and installers have flocked to the area to capitalize on the booming opportunities, creating a lot of competition. Prices are very competitive in Southern California, but, even still, a typical turn key installation price runs between $7.00 and $9.00 per square foot here.
- There are other factors that can affect the price. Such things include access site, slopes, sprinkler heads, navigating around trees or other obstacles, the product that you choose and more. While a company can give you a ball park estimate over the phone, or you can get a general idea yourself based on the average price per square foot, the only way to get an accurate price is to have a professional visit your home to measure and assess the property. That professional will give you an official quote.
- DIY projects will save you money. The installation process for artificial grass is rather involved, but if you have a small project (under 500 feet) it would be much more cost efficient to do it yourself and save on the labor costs. Even if you have a larger project and want to keep the costs down, doing it yourself might be your answer. Many homeowners all over the country have successfully installed artificial grass as a DIY project.
