How much does artificial grass cost?

artificial astroturf grass samplesWith artificial grass, you get what you pay for. Yes, there are budget option on the market, but these look more like high school Astroturf or a greengrocers display mat than anything else.

Nobody will have difficulty spotting these as fakes, and in all likelihood they will be ready for replacement after a few harsh seasons of wear-and-tear.

At the other end of the price scale, good quality artificial grass looks like the real thing from a medium distance and will last a lot longer.

It’s this good looking, long lasting turf which Cheshire Artificial Grass specialises in.

Brass tacks

If you exclude installation, then artificial grass is usually sold in large rolls. Artificial grass suppliers sell artificial grass ranging anywhere from £10 to £30 per square metre (m2), similar to the prices you’d pay for a new carpet.

The vast majority of our public customers prefer to have artificial grass installed so as to achieve the perfect finish.

Our ‘grass and installation’ prices vary widely depending on the size and shape of your garden, but a good average figure is £48 per m2 (with VAT applicable on most small gardens).

This comes with a one year guarantee on installation and a seven year guarantee on the grass product itself.

Save time and money with artificial grass

Initially at least, artificial grass is more expensive than natural grass.

You can pick up rolls of natural turf for about £6 per m2, and an £11 bag of grass seeds might be enough to cover your whole garden.

After installation though, artificial grass can actually start to save you money and (most importantly) time. Some keen gardeners love time spent tending their grass and keeping it looking fresh all year round.

These gardeners probably won’t be interested in artificial grass, but for every garden fanatic there are many others who seek to avoid garden work at all costs. If you fall into this category then artificial grass has the power to give you part of your life back.

There will be no more mowing, no more de-weeding and no more scarifying. Just extra time spent with friends and family on those lazy summer weekends.

Artificial grass can also save you money. You don’t need an expensive lawnmower (which also comes with maintenance bills), and you don’t need a space-consuming shed to store it in either.
