The Cost of Getting Artificial Grass Installed In Your Front or Backyard
Many homeowners dream of improving their curb appeal with front yard and backyard landscaping. Unfortunately, extensive landscaping can be expensive and requires frequent upkeep. With artificial grass in Toronto, you can maintain a lush, green lawn year-round with little to no maintenance. Although there is the initial installation cost for artificial grass, once your new lawn is in place, you will be able to enjoy your beautiful yard without worrying about watering, cutting, or weeding. Here is a comprehensive guide to the costs of installing artificial grass in Toronto.
Depends on the Brand
Just like any product, the cost of your artificial grass will vary depending on the type of turf you install. Similar to purchasing carpet or flooring, you can view synthetic grass samples before installation to decide on the colour and texture that best fits your aesthetic. Companies such as Fieldmasters offer a wide range of artificial grass in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. A few of their artificial grasses include the Luxury Extreme, Superlawn Extreme, and Bermuda. Each of these turfs varies in terms of blade density, height, colour, and texture, and you should always compare samples before selecting the grass for your new lawn. Each sample will include appropriate pricing information to help you find the perfect turf to fit your budget.
General Cost of Artificial Turf
In general, most artificial grass in Toronto will range between about $4 and $6 per square foot. However, once you add the installation cost, this can rise to between $10 and $15 per square foot. The price will vary depending on the type of grass you select and your yard’s overall shape and state. For example, if the installation team will need to remove rocks, sod, or other debris, the labour costs may increase. Of course, the price will increase depending on how much of your lawn you plan to cover. You may choose to do both front yard and backyard landscaping or install turf in a small area of your yard.
Final Cost of Artificial Grass Versus Natural Grass
In comparison, natural grass is cheaper per square foot for installation but has much higher maintenance costs. Sod can be as cheap as $0.40 per square foot but will require regular watering, cutting, and grooming. Between fertilizers, aeration, cutting, and watering, you can quickly pay more than $1000 per season to maintain your lawn. In contrast, although artificial grass costs more for the initial installation, it requires virtually no maintenance for its entire lifetime.
