Is your garden looking a little drab? Artificial grass may be just what you need to bring it back to life! Not sure how much artificial grass installation costs? Read on to find out how much you'll pay based on your garden size, your location, and more.

 What is Artificial Grass Installation? 

If you’re sick of mowing your lawn or fed up with muddy footprints in your home, have you ever considered installing artificial grass? It’s becoming increasingly popular for homes and commercial properties, which is no surprise considering its endless benefits. Artificial grass is low maintenance, pet friendly, and looks great all year round. With less time spent having to maintain your grass, you’ll have more time to relax and enjoy your garden. 

You might be considering rolling up your sleeves and laying artificial turf yourself. While it is entirely possible to do this, hiring a trusted professional will ensure that the grass is laid to a high standard, minimising the need to relay it after a few years and reducing costs later down the line!

What changes the cost of Installing Artificial Grass? 

The cost of artificial grass installation can vary depending on different factors. These include: 

  • Size of the garden

  • Type of surface 

  • Location 

  • Quality

SIze of the garden

The bigger your lawn, the more artificial grass you will need, and the more labour needed to install it - so it’s not surprising that the size of your garden is one of the biggest factors to affect the price. To give you a rough estimate of how much you can expect to pay depending on the size of your garden, here’s a rough estimate: 

Size of gardenTotal installation costs (supply and fit)
10m2£500
20m2 £1,000
30m2 £1,500
40m2£2,000
50m2£2,500

Type of surface 

Another factor affecting price is the type of surface you're working with. In a nutshell, the more expensive it is for the grass to install, the more expensive it will be. If grass can be directly laid onto a concrete surface, for example, this is a quick and simple process. If your professional has to lay turf on top of existing grass, they'll have to remove the grass first, increasing the labour as well as the cost. 

Location

Like most things, the cost of installing artificial grass will cost more if you live in a larger city, such as London. The silver lining is that gardens tend to be smaller in the capital, which means that you’ll probably end up spending less overall. To give you a general idea, here’s the average cost of artificial grass installation (in total) for a medium-sized garden depending on location: 

LocationAverage cost (in total)
London£2,000
Nationwide£1,500

Quality 

If you’ve ever heard of the saying ‘you get what you pay for’, this is definitely the case with artificial grass. There are many different types of artificial grass, with prices varying significantly depending on the quality. Find Artificial Grass Installers near me.

Different grass types provide different benefits. Nylon, for example, is particularly strong so it’s more likely to withstand heavy usage. Polyethylene is ideal if you want your grass to look and feel as close to real as possible. Your professional will be best placed to advise you on the best type of grass for your budget.
