Installing artificial grass can certainly be costly. The average cost to install artificial grass is approximately $3,812 for an acre of either 1000 square feet or more or approximately $3,812 for a half square mile lawn. The actual cost to install a properly installed natural grass lawn or turf seed lawn is significantly higher than the cost to install an artificial grass installation. The reason for this difference in cost is that the artificial grass installation will not only be taking over the existing grass lawn but also adding to the existing topsoil as well. When installing artificial grass, whether it is indoors or outdoors, you need to realize that the installation process can be time consuming and messy, with the need to remove the grass once it has been placed, which will require you to get rid of any topsoil in your lawn or landscape which is above the grass you have in place
Types of artificial grass installation
With both types of artificial grass installation, you will need to have a tarp or canopy over your newly installed lawn or turf to protect it from the elements. When choosing which type of artificial grass installation to use, you should make sure that you install the artificial turf installation in a location which receives the least amount of sunlight possible. Sunlight can cause the colors in your artificial grass installation to fade, and over time, the grass may actually start to brown. Artificial turf, when installed correctly, will remain looking its best for many years, and if installed properly in an area where it receives enough sunlight, it will provide you with the added benefit of saving money on the power bill.
When homeowners choose to install artificial grass installation in their own yards, they can vary the total cost of installation based upon the size of the yard. For a small, average-sized yard, homeowners can expect to spend anywhere from two hundred to eight hundred dollars. For larger yards, like those that are almost twenty by forty yards, the price per square foot will be higher. For a larger yard, homeowners can expect to pay anywhere from one thousand to three thousand dollars. Homeowners who have a large, extremely well-groomed yard can expect the price of their artificial grass installation to be up to ten times the price that it would be for a smaller yard.
