One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive from our clients in Brisbane is, “how much does it cost to install artificial grass?”
Unfortunately, there is no simple answer.
But because clients so often ask this question, we thought it would be helpful to provide you with an average price guide for installing synthetic turf. There are many variables involved in this cost, from region to region and even from one supplier vs another supplier.
In general, prices start from $30 m2 to $55 m2 + GST supplied and installed all depending on the factors below.
Ground preparation needed
One of the most important things you need to do before installing artificial grass is to prepare the ground. You can easily install artificial grass in your area if you prepare the ground well.
Levelling the ground is critical for installation. Tamping down the soil will level the ground and make the artificial lawn look natural. Some of the tools used to level the ground are fork, rake, heavy hammer, whacker plate and any levelling machine available. Note that if the soil is not levelled well, you will have a bumpy lawn.
Another most essential step in preparing the ground is adding sand infill. Enough sand infill will improve the look of the lawn and protect it from harsh climate and UV rays.
Some areas often have unwanted grass and sometimes tree roots, and they should be cut. A weeder is suitable for cutting grass and roots deeply anchored to the ground.
Another factor that influences the cost of artificial grass installation is the accessibility of the area. Difficult to access areas are:
- Sloping area
- Water runways
- Areas surrounded by trees
- Uneven, narrow areas
- Stairs and any areas that are rising
Drainage also needs to be installed to ensure your artificial lawn can last for many decades. Professionally installed drainage offers many benefits like:
- Prevents standing water
- Keep mosquitoes away
- Conserves water
- Keep the surroundings clean and safe
- Help increase the lifespan of your artificial lawn
Type of grass chosen
There are many different types of artificial grass in the market today. They come in different colours, textures, forms, shapes, designs and lengths. Premium quality artificial grass will be more expensive as they come with up to 7 years manufacturer warranty 1-year installation warranty, and they can last up to 25 years if appropriately maintained.
The size of the area is also another factor that affects the price of artificial turf installation. The larger the site, the more expensive it would be to install fake turf products.
Extras like timber/garden edging
Another factor that affects the cost of fake turf installation are extras such as timber installation, garden edging, and other landscaping features. At Astro Klean, we can install decking, fencing, retaining walls, and privacy screens.
Retaining wall installation is another factor affecting the pricing of artificial turf installations. Areas that are sloping or have water runways more often need retaining walls. This is to ensure your lawn is safe, looks good, and can last for many years to come.
The actual price again depends on the factors mentioned. You must review the following information, as it will give you a better idea of what to expect in your area. Overall, artificial grass is a great investment and it’s worth it.
