Why projects under 500 sq.ft. cost more?

Artificial grass installation projects of less than 500 sq.ft. could cost almost double the amount per square foot compared to larger jobs.

The main reason for the higher price is the amount of fixed costs that go into signing, initiating, and completing the job.

For example, it would take just as many estimated trips to approve a smaller turf job as a larger one. The smaller job requires the same or more advanced arrangements as it lasts only 1-2 days.

Some clients prefer to hire local gardeners for smaller projects. However, they will have to get all the proper equipment and learn how to install artificial grass. Often, installers who do not focus on artificial turf deliver mediocre quality.

What are the limits of this artificial turf cost calculator?

Our artificial grass cost calculator is designed to match our estimates in California, US. For some states where labor is less expensive, the price may drop by about 5-10%. However, for the northern states where installation prices could be lower, it takes more to prep wet soil. Overall, the price that you see for California falls into a reasonable expectation of artificial grass costs nationwide.

What Causes the Price of Artificial Turf Installation to Vary?

When transitioning from natural grass, you'll notice that that the cost of turf installation can differ greatly. Artificial turf installation will start at prices ranging from $8-11 sq. ft. The overall price will vary depending on job size, intended use, add ons, and the need for proper drainage. Add ons include but are not limited to: weed barrier fabric, pet turf systems for odor control, padding layers, premium infills, gopher mesh and more. Artificial turf selection will also affect cost. Factors such as face weight, pile height, and its ability to stand up to heavy traffic will make the cost of your artificial lawn vary.

Labor costs will rise if accessibility makes removing the existing grass more difficult. When installing artificial grass in areas where there are stairs, slopes, narrow passageways, and long distance hauling requirements; expect to see the cost per square feet be higher than usual.

Turf cost may vary between residential and commercial applications. The cost estimate for commercial applications will be higher due to more upfront costs and excess labor required on the job site to keep it safe for heavier traffic and compliant with insurance policies.

How Shady Contractors Can Lower Labor Costs

There are contractors out there who will lower artificial grass costs by cutting corners during installation and then pass savings onto you  and package it as a great deal. Stay away from contractors who are offering low labor costs, they're really just skimping on quality. If you see artificial grass installation advertised at $4.99 per square foot, this is a sign that they're not completing the installation per manufacturer guidelines. You're sure to run into problems down the road. A few ways they'll cut corners are: not using class ii road base as the base material, using cheap or refurbished grass that doesn't offer a natural look, not fully removing soil for base gravel, using fewer nails, and allowing visible seams.
